Following a hit-and-miss month in February, the next four weeks will be hugely important for Liverpool.
They will, however, be eager to right their wrongs early.
Elsewhere, the month should begin with another test for the club’s youngsters on the senior stage, while a 1-0 loss at Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 tie leaves it all to do in the Champions League.
For the academy, there are high-profile clashes both on the domestic and continental stage, while the women’s side will contest one of the club’s four meetings with Everton over the space of 12 days.
Here are all the key dates for your diary throughout March.
March 3 – Chelsea in the FA Cup & U19s in Europe
This month begins with a trip to Chelsea in the FA Cup, and though Jurgen Klopp will take charge, it could provide further opportunity for the youngsters who overcame Shrewsbury in the third round under Neil Critchley.
A clear indication of his stance should come earlier in the day, with the under-19s to take on Benfica in the last 16 of the UEFA Youth League, as those involved will not be taking part at Stamford Bridge.
March 7 – Bournemouth (H)
Liverpool produced a comfortable 3-0 victory over the Cherries at Dean Court in December, and have now won all five of their last meetings, scoring 17 goals and conceding none.
March 10 – U23s take on Wolfsburg
Liverpool made the shock announcement at the beginning of March that Critchley had left his position as under-23s manager to take over at Blackpool in League One.
It is a positive move for Critchley, but one which leaves the young Reds without their figurehead, and his stand-in faces a big challenge first time out as the U23s take on Wolfsburg in the quarter-finals of the Premier League International Cup.
March 11 – Atletico Madrid (H)
That was a difficult night for Klopp’s side, who struggled to break down a rigid Atletico defence, and with the return leg at Anfield, the LaLiga challengers are unlikely to take a more adventurous approach.
Liverpool’s ability to turn around knockout deficits will be pointed to in the buildup, but Klopp will be more likely to call upon the power of Anfield as the Reds defend the European Cup.
March 14 & 15 – A pair of mini-Merseyside derbies
First up is the U18s’ clash at Kirkby, before the U23s travel to Haig Avenue for their Premier League 2 tie, with plenty riding on the encounters for both youth sides.
March 16 – Everton (A)
Now, unless City fail to take a single point from either of their next two league clashes with United and Burnley, this will simply be another opportunity to move closer to the title, rather than a trophy-clincher.
That will be music to Carlo Ancelotti’s ears, having expressed his desire for Liverpool to win the league at any other stadium than Goodison back in February.
March 20 – Champions League knockout draws
If Liverpool progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a comeback over Atletico, they will learn their opponents for the next stage on March 20.
The draw will be held in Nyon, beginning at 11am (GMT), and will be followed by draws for the semi-finals and final directly after.
March 21 – Crystal Palace (H)
If results go their way, this could be another game in which Liverpool confirm their status as champions, but now it is more likely that the visit of Roy Hodgson’s Palace comes before the names are engraved.
Also on that day, the U18s visit Newcastle, as they continue their challenge for the U18 Premier League title.
March 22 – International break begins
Ideally the Reds would have ended March as champions, but the loss at Watford now makes this unlikely, and the interval will serve as an unwelcome delay.
The majority of Klopp’s squad are likely to be called up for duty, with England taking on Italy (March 27) and Denmark (March 31) among a plethora of friendlies and qualifiers to end the month.
March 22 also brings the Liverpool FC Women’s clash with Man City, with an unwelcome gulf between the title favourites and Vicky Jepson’s struggling Reds.
March 25 – LFC Women’s Merseyside derby
The final date in Liverpool’s diary for March comes with the fourth and final Merseyside derby of the month, as Jepson’s side visit Goodison in the Women’s Super League.
Everton emerged 1-0 victors in the Anfield clash back in November, and the Reds will be desperate to take the three points on the road this time around.
