And it makes for a very congested start to the New Year for Liverpool, who travel to Chelsea in the Premier League on January 2, and host Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup on January 9 between the two ties.
It has also been confirmed that the clash with Brentford on January 15 has been pushed back to the following day, as the Reds would have been otherwise due to play twice in three days.
Meanwhile, the visit of Arsenal in the Premier League on February 26 has been postponed, due to one of those two clubs contesting the League Cup final on February 27.
