Reaction to Liverpool's Fixture List

The Premier League released the fixture list for the upcoming season on Wednesday morning. You have to play every team twice but the order in which you play these games does have an impact on your season, it’s indisputable.

Reaction to Liverpool's Fixture List

The fixture list hasn’t been too kind for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.  There are two big blocks of games for the Reds to navigate. Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea and Premier League Champions Leicester are four of the first five fixtures then the turn of the year sees Liverpool up against Manchester United, Chelsea, Spurs, Leicester, Arsenal and Manchester City in the first ten games of the new year.

However, there are some positives to come from this. It means Liverpool have a favourable November and December; Watford, Southampton, Sunderland, Bournemouth, West Ham, Middlesbrough, Everton and Stoke. There’s a chance there to build some momentum.

Similarly, they have, on paper at least, a decent end to the season. April and May see fixtures against Everton, Bournemouth, Stoke, West Brom, Crystal Palace, Watford, Southampton, West Ham and Middlesbrough.

No European football and these two encouraging runs of fixtures can give Liverpool fans some optimism. There are a potential 51 points on offer in those two blocks, take near maximum points and it’s a good base for a successful season.

    The problem we have was our performances against so call soft teams. We normally do very well against top Teams, this is why I have always say that We need STRONG DEFENDERS to tight all the bolts and nuts.

    Not entirely sure if West Ham should be part of a ‘favourable fixtures’ list. They are currently way ahead of us in terms of squad, technique and performance. Only factor that can put LFC ahead of West Ham is a stupendous, injury-free preseason and with Studge and Coutinho still a part of LFC squad.
