The Goodison Park fixture, kick-off 8pm, has been brought forward a day for the benefit of the cameras, and a possible reunion with Gazza should make compelling early season viewing.
Our first home game switched for live television is the visit of Derby County. The game was to have been played on Saturday October 13, but has now been put back to the following Monday, October 15 with an 8pm kick-off.
Meanwhile, White Hart Lane will be in the spotlight before the season has even begun, the prestige friendly between England and Holland at the Lane will be screened live on Sky on Wednesday August 15, kick-off 8pm.
Spurs fans who cannot make it to the Lane for the opener against Aston Villa will get an early chance to view the talents of newcomers Gus, Teddy and Goran when Sky televises our second game of the season against Everton live on Monday August 20.
