Liverpool will play just twice in 15 days over the Christmas period, with the New Year trip to Southampton among five January fixtures moved for TV coverage.
The Reds have been dogged by a relentless schedule throughout the season so far, but a spell that is traditionally one of the busiest will be one of their quietest this time around.
Liverpool’s early exit from the League Cup has ensured a long break between the clashes with Villa and United, too, with eight days to prepare for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
It is a relatively forgiving fixture list for the Reds in a merciless campaign, and could allow Klopp’s squad to recover as they find themselves beset with injury issues so far.
