Premier League Live TV games, who has been chosen most this season.

Friday saw the latest set of live TV games announced.

The latest choices mean that we now know all of the Premier League Live TV games selected this season, apart from the three on the final day of the season.

On Friday, Newcastle v Liverpool was predictably selected. However, when it comes to the final day of the season, unless Newcastle could get relegated, the game at Fulham won’t be chosen.

With 37 rounds of matches known, this is how many times each Premier League club has been chosen for live TV this season:

28 Liverpool

27 Man Utd

26 Spurs

25 Chelsea

25 Man City

24 Arsenal

19 Newcastle United

18 Everton

16 West Ham

15 Leicester

14 Wolves

13 Fulham

12 Crystal Palace

12 Cardiff

11 Brighton

11 Burnley

10 Watford

8 Bournemouth

8 Huddersfield

8 Southampton

No real surprises at the very top with the ‘big six’ selected the most times.

However, yet again the big anomaly is Newcastle United, yet again the position in this table totally at odds with their position in the Premier League.

So why is a club that is currently 15th in the table and fighting relegation, chosen more than any other PL club outside the top six?

The TV companies are only bothered about money and numbers of viewers.

They choose Newcastle United because our club has a lot of fans and due to neutrals taking an interest.

This isn’t just a one-off, as season after season Newcastle are picked far more often than their performances on the pitch or league placings merit.

Newcastle United, a nothing club that nobody cares about…?
