Tottenham fans wanting to watch Antonio Conte take charge of his first Premier League game will have to use an illegal stream or make-do with the Arsenal match as Sky explain why they won’t be showing their match.
Now, the Everton game has taken on added significance with Antonio Conte replacing Nuno Espirito Santo earlier this week.
Still, Sky are sticking with their original selection in a bid to be ‘fair’ to clubs and match-going fans, factors that rarely come into consideration when they are moving games at other times.
Conte got a brief taster of what life as a Spurs manager will be like as he watched his side race into a three-goal lead against Vitesse Arnhem on Thursday night only to see his side nearly throw it away by conceding two goals and having a man sent off after 59 minutes (Vitesse had two sent off in the final 10 minutes).
Arsenal go into this weekend’s round of fixtures two points ahead of their north London rivals.
