Liverpool’s schedule for next season has already been announced and it kicks off with a trip to Stamford Bridge.

For the first time in five seasons, the Reds will not come up against a newly-promoted side on the opening day and will instead visit Chelsea on August 13 after both sides underperformed in 2022/23.

The festive period will present a tricky few weeks for Jurgen Klopp’s side, with Man United, Arsenal and Newcastle all set to visit Anfield in December within the space of two weeks to give fans mixed feelings about the Reds’ mid-season hopes.

It will all end with Wolves at home on May 19, as two of the previous four campaigns have done with Man City pipping Liverpool to the league title on both occasions.

Other notable dates for your diary include the Merseyside derbies on October 21 and March 16, as well as Man United on December 16 and April 6.
