Five more Newcastle United fixtures in August and September have been rescheduled after being selected for live television coverage

Newcastle's trip to Manchester City will now kick-off at 8pm BST on Saturday, 19th August, instead of 3pm BST as initially planned. That game against the reigning champions will be screened live on TNT Sports.

United's second home game of the campaign sees Liverpool arrive on Tyneside. That game, which had originally been set for Saturday, 26th August at 3pm BST, will now take place on Sunday, 27th August at 4:30pm BST and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

They then face a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, 2nd September, with that fixture now set to kick-off at 5:30pm (changed from 3pm BST) and be shown live on Sky Sports.

Eddie Howe's side's clash with Brentford is now scheduled for Sunday, 17th September at 4:30pm BST, instead of Saturday, 16th September at 3pm BST as originally planned - though that game is still subject to possible movement dependent upon the participation of Premier League clubs in the Champions League the following Tuesday.

And the Magpies' trip to newly-promoted Sheffield United, which had been set for Saturday, 23rd September at 3pm BST, will now kick-off at 4:30pm BST on Sunday, 24th September, with that clash at Bramall Lane being shown live on Sky Sports too.

Any further alterations to Newcastle United's fixture schedule will be confirmed in due course.
