The Reds are now back in the race for the top four after the collapse of the Super League, with Monday night’s 1-1 draw at Leeds potentially costly.
Needing to catch up with Chelsea, West Ham and Leicester, while Tottenham and Everton breathe down their necks, Liverpool will be targeting maximum points to secure a place in next season’s Champions League.
Late kickoffs on a Saturday night have become this season’s graveyard shift, and as it stands this will give the Reds only two days off before a trip to West Brom, which is currently set for May 11.
Liverpool are expected to head to Burnley on May 18/19, with the government’s roadmap out of lockdown allowing up to 10,000 supporters into Turf Moor for the penultimate game of the season.
Claims the Reds could even have their fans in attendance seem to be wide of the mark, but Anfield will allow supporters for the final-day clash with Crystal Palace if all goes well.
