17 days without a game & another injury – Latest Liverpool FC News

With their upcoming Premier League clash with Chelsea postponed, Liverpool will go 17 days without a game, while there’s also news of another fresh injury problem.


Chelsea trip called off

Liverpool’s upcoming clash with Chelsea has been postponed due to the Queen’s state funeral, leaving a 17-day gap between games.

This afternoon, the Premier League confirmed that Chelsea vs Liverpool, Man United vs Leeds and Brighton vs Crystal Palace had all been called off.

It means there will have been four weeks between Liverpool’s most recent league clash against Everton and their next scheduled fixture with Brighton on October 1.

A state funeral will held in London on September 19 following the Queen’s passing last week, with the date landing a day before Liverpool are due to visit Stamford Bridge.

New dates will need to be found for the meetings with Wolves and Chelsea, with the next available slots in the calendar coming in January and February.

It is a shambolic situation that could at least have been avoided during the weekend just gone, with the fixture list able to have taken place with pre-match tributes to the Queen instead.

That will be the case when Liverpool host Ajax on Tuesday, as Klopp confirmed in his pre-match press conference.
