Liverpool’s Premier League fixtures for 2019/20 have been announced and it makes for interesting reading.
The Reds are still buoyant after their Champions League triumph earlier this month – just reward after a superb campaign.
Jurgen Klopp’s side missed out on Premier League glory, however, finishing runners-up to Manchester City despite racking up a club record 97 points.
Winning a first league title since 1990 will be the primary aim going into next season, with Liverpool’s fixture list now revealed.
A kind-looking start sees newly-promoted Norwich City head to Anfield on August 9th – a nice little Friday Night Football offering to get the season up and running – before a trip to Southampton (August 17th) follows.
Arsenal (August 24th) are up next at Anfield, in what seems to be a customary August meeting with the Gunners.
The north Londoners also play their part in a daunting end to the season, with a trip to the Emirates followed by a home clash with Chelsea and a final day visit to Newcastle.
As for City, Liverpool host the champions on November 9th and make the trip to the Etihad on April 4th.
The latter could potentially be a huge occasion in the title race, should the season unfold like last time around.
Reds supporters always look for the meetings with Manchester United and Everton, given their rivalry with the pair.
United are up first at Old Trafford on October 19th and Everton make the trip across Stanley Park on December 4th.
The return fixture against United is on January 18th, while the Blues host the Reds on March 14th.
As for Boxing Day, Liverpool head to Leicester City for a meeting with former boss Brendan Rodgers, while newcomers Sheffield United are at Anfield on New Year’s Day.
In truth, it is never easy to predict where the easier or more difficult runs of fixtures lie, with opponents coming in and out of form at different times.
Liverpool will not be afraid of anyone, though, as they look to end 29 years without being crowned English champions.
