Liverpool’s Premier League Path: Upcoming Encounters Await
West Ham United at Anfield
Date: September 24
After a commendable victory over Wolves, Liverpool’s next Premier League fixture is a home encounter against West Ham United. The Hammers, even after the departure of their captain Declan Rice to Arsenal, have shown resilience in their campaign, facing only one loss. Both Liverpool and David Moyes’ team have Europa League commitments, with West Ham taking on Serbian side Backa Topola.
A Rendezvous in North London
Date: September 30
The streets of North London are bracing for an electric weekend when Liverpool head to Tottenham Hotspur’s grounds. Tottenham, like Liverpool, has started the season robustly, with both sides maintaining an unbeaten record so far. The Reds emerged triumphant with a 2-1 scoreline in their previous outing to Tottenham.
The Seagulls Await in Brighton
Date: October 8
Before the international break in October, Liverpool faces another challenge against an in-form Brighton. Under the guidance of Roberto De Zerbi, Brighton recently showcased their prowess with a 3-1 win over Manchester United. Liverpool’s previous visit to the AMEX wasn’t pleasant, ending in a 3-0 defeat, something they will aim to rectify.
The Merseyside Showdown

Post the international break, Liverpool resumes Premier League action with a bang, hosting neighbours Everton for an early Saturday kick-off. After their recent comeback win at Molineux, the Reds are in high spirits. However, Jürgen Klopp didn’t hide his displeasure about the early kick-off time for this anticipated Merseyside derby. Everton is still on the hunt for their first Premier League win this season.
Nottingham Forest’s Anfield Visit
Date: October 29
Concluding a busy October, Liverpool welcomes Nottingham Forest to Anfield. This game comes after Liverpool’s encounters with Everton and Toulouse in the Europa League. The highlight? Facing Divock Origi, a former Red, for the first time since his 2020 departure.
