Liverpool head into the final couple of months of the year with several intriguing games lined up in the Premier League and Europa League.
The Reds have made a strong start in both competitions and will be eager to build on the foundations they have laid over the next few weeks.
Read on as we look at the five biggest remaining games for Liverpool in 2023, starting with what will likely be a crucial European tie.
Toulouse (A) – Europa League – November 9
Liverpool is the bookmakers’ favourite to win Group E and their trip to Toulouse in November will be pivotal to their chances of claiming top spot.
Leading sports news and blog sites will have a vast array of information about the latest betting odds for a game which could prove to be tricky for the Reds.
Toulouse have proved to be a tough nut to crack in Ligue 1 this season, losing just two of their first nine matches in the French top-flight.
However, Liverpool will expect to turn them over in France to enhance their chances of securing qualification for the next phase of the Europa League.
Manchester City (A) – Premier League – November 25
Liverpool will head to Manchester City at the end of November aiming to demonstrate they are genuine contenders for the Premier League title this season.
Man City are second in the table after nine matches, two points behind Tottenham Hotspur and level with Arsenal. Liverpool are one point behind City and Arsenal.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were routed 4-1 on their last visit to the Etihad Stadium in April and will undoubtedly be gunning for revenge on this occasion.
The reigning champions have shown signs of vulnerability this season – a factor which gives Liverpool every chance of taking something from the game.
Manchester United (H) – Premier League – December 16
The game that most Liverpool fans look for when the fixtures are released takes place on December 16 as Manchester United visit Anfield.
The Reds demolished their fierce rivals in their last meeting in March, taking advantage of some woeful defending to secure a memorable 7-0 victory.
Erik ten Hag’s side have been unconvincing this season but have slowly worked their way onto the heels of the top six in the Premier League.
While Liverpool will be the bookies’ favourites to win this one, they would be well-advised not to underestimate a team who will be gunning for revenge.
Arsenal (H) – Premier League – December 23
A tough month continues the following weekend as Arsenal head to Merseyside aiming to showcase their title credentials.
The Gunners took four points off Liverpool last season, but ultimately came up short in the title race as Man City powered past them on the run-in.
They are in contention again this season, although most of their early season performances have been short of the standards set by manager Mikel Arteta.
A victory here would be the perfect way for Liverpool to kick off the festive period, but Arsenal are guaranteed to put up stern resistance.
Newcastle United (H) – Premier League – December 30
Newcastle claimed fourth place ahead of Liverpool last season and are once again in contention after making a solid start to the current campaign.
However, the Magpies have not won at Anfield in the league since April 1994 and Liverpool will expect to maintain that record on December 30.
The Reds are unbeaten in their last 14 league meetings with Newcastle (W10, D4) – a record which suggests the visitors have a mental block where Liverpool are concerned.
Liverpool triumphed 2-1 at St James’ Park earlier this season and look a good bet to end the year by completing the double over Eddie Howe’s side.
