New fixture date, LeBron kit & Doak injury – Latest Liverpool FC News

Tuesday’s Liverpool news round up includes the rearrangement of a Premier League fixture, the first word from the club on a new LeBron James themed kit, and an update on the fitness of Ben Doak.


Fixture news AT LAST

The Premier League have finally announced a new date for Liverpool’s home fixture against Wolves, which was initially postponed last September.

Having already played Wolves three times since the turn of the year, most recently in a 3-0 league defeat at Molineux last Saturday, it’s now been confirmed that Liverpool will face Julen Lopetegui’s side yet again in the coming weeks.

The game is set to take place on Wednesday, March 1, with kickoff at Anfield set for 8pm (GMT).

No broadcast information has been confirmed for the clash, which is unlikely to be shown live on TV in the UK.

The rearrangement of the Wolves fixture means Liverpool’s other game in hand, an away trip to Chelsea, now cannot be played until April at the very earliest.

There is now the possibility that Liverpool will face Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal ALL within the first week back after the March international break.

Here, we explain more.
