Liverpool will not play on either Boxing Day or New Year’s Eve this year, with the Reds’ six Premier League fixtures for next month all moved for TV coverage.
The Reds have learned their schedule for the coming month, and it includes another Wednesday night to Saturday lunchtime turnaround.
With every Premier League game to be shown live on TV until at least the end of the year, all six of Liverpool’s domestic fixtures have been rescheduled.
They will not play on either Boxing Day or New Year’s Eve, with it also unlikely the visit to Southampton on January 2 will be moved to New Year’s Day either.
Liverpool’s potential first game in front of fans at Anfield will be on Sunday, December 6, kicking off at home to Wolves at 7.15pm, with 2,000 supporters permitted to attend.
That game comes sandwiched between clashes with Ajax and Midtjylland in the Champions League, with Klopp likely pleased with the time between the latter and the trip to Fulham on Sunday, December 13 at 4.30pm.
But there are eight days between that game and Liverpool’s next outing, providing ample time to rest and recover.
