Is Aston Villa v West Ham on TV?

Unfortunately, Aston Villa v West Ham will not be broadcast live on any UK TV channels.

Wolves v Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest v Tottenham Hotspur are both being shown on Sky Sports channels but the Hammers’ trip to Villa Park will only be covered by live updates from the Sky Sports News ‘Soccer Sunday’ studio on Sky channel 409.

The match is being played on Sunday, rather than Saturday at 3pm which would be the normal kick off time for a non-televised Premier League match, as West Ham were in European action on Thursday night.
