“The Friday night start is a belter” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 2019/20 Premier League fixtures

The release of the 2019/20 Premier League fixture list was met with an outpouring of mixed reactions from Liverpool fans.

While the euphoria of Liverpool’s Champions League triumph is no doubt still pumping through the veins, attention has already started to turn the new season.

The Premier League have announced the new fixture list for the 2019/20 season, where the Reds will be looking to go one better than last term after finishing an agonising point adrift of the top spot.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will kickstart their season on the opening night at home to newly promoted Norwich (Friday, August 9), before making the journey to Southampton the following week (August 17).

As always, eyes were immediately drawn to the first meeting with Man United which will be at Old Trafford on October 19, and Everton will make the short journey to Anfield on December 4.

Meanwhile, clashes with defending champions Man City will come on November 9 (H) and April 4 (A).

It is important to note, as ever, that fixture dates are subject to change.

Here’s how fans on social media and the This Is Anfield forums reacted to Liverpool’s schedule for the 2019/20 season.


There was optimism from fans over Liverpool’s opening fixtures, which all starts with some Friday night football…

“I hope Liverpool can continue their unbeaten run in the 2019/20 season, but with more wins and fewer draws. Come on the reds, you can win the League! YNWA”

James Kelly on Facebook.


The first game against Norwich saw many joke about the return of one Luis Suarez…


While the consensus from fans was that a tough run-in lies in wait…

“Last 3 games is a joke.”

Alex Lim on Facebook.

“Very happy with our Christmas schedule but what a run-in! Tough.”

Kopstar on the forums.
