Liverpool will set a new record as they host Middlesbrough on Sunday as they aim to secure Champions League football next season. The Reds sit a point ahead of Arsenal going into the final day, knowing a win versus relegated Middlesbrough would see the clubs return to Europe’s biggest stage under Jürgen Klopp’s guidance.

The game will be shown on Sky Sports, making it Liverpool’s 29th game from the 38 they play to be shown on live TV, a record for a Premier League season by one club, say the Liverpool Echo.

Overall, it will be Liverpool’s 426th appearance, behind Manchester United who have been on live television in Britain on 497 occasions.

It’s fair to say the surge of TV scheduling for Liverpool’s Premier League fixtures is somewhat down to Jürgen Klopp’s charismatic self, as well as Liverpool fighting for Champions League football. Liverpool have only not appeared on TV nine times this season, helping fans who would usually have to load up an illegal and dodgy stream.

The nine occasions Liverpool haven’t appeared on live TV were:

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool (August 20th, 2016)

Liverpool 5-1 Hull (September 24th, 2016)

Southampton 0-0 Liverpool (November 19th, 2016)

Liverpool 2-0 Sunderland (November 26th, 2016)

Middlesbrough 0-3 Liverpool (December 14th, 2016)

Sunderland 2-2 Liverpool (January 2nd, 2017)

Hull 2-0 Liverpool (February 4th, 2017)

Liverpool 2-2 Bournemouth (April 5th, 2017)

Stoke 1-2 Liverpool (April 8th, 2017)
