With Liverpool’s fixture list for next season now confirmed, fans have given their thoughts on how 2023/24 could pan out for the Reds.
As is customary at this time of year, eyes are naturally drawn to the dates for the first and last games of the season, as well as key clashes such as the Merseyside derby and the meetings with both Manchester clubs.
Fans were keen to plot Liverpool’s route to glory from August to May, noticing a tricky festive schedule at Anfield and an ending to the story we have seen before.
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 face a trip to Stamford Bridge on August 13.
Here’s what fans had to say about the schedule for 2023/24:
Chelsea up first, but some aren’t too phased!

Chelsea away will be the first game Mcallister puts on a midfield masterclass then. Showing Enzo who’s the real deal

If that fixture list is right, then Chelsea away first day is balanced out by not going further than Burnley between the 9th of December and 13th of January and having five home games after Europe. Quite favourable all in.

United, Arsenal and Newcastle at home all in the space of two weeks over Christmas. Bloody hell. https://t.co/NPK6HPl98X

Bournemouth at Anfield sandwiched between away games to Chelsea and Newcastle is a tough enough start.

It's city's title to lose as always.
Obviously there will be some rescheduling. But why doesn't city have a big fixture at Christmas?
The big squad they have, can breeze through those fixtures in quick succession.
Meanwhile, we have to play United, arsenal and Newcastle.

“3 of the top 4 in December! All at home at least”

'You have to play everyone twice so it doesn't matter when you play them' is up there with the most stupid takes in football.
Of course it matters.

We're facing Wolves on the last day at Anfield, We're gonna finish in the top 2

“Last time we played the final match at home against Wolves (in 2019) we were so close to winning the title (it was the first time for me in the beautiful city of Liverpool, what a moment).
I have a feeling that this time, when Wolves will come to Anfield, we will celebrate winning the premier league title!”
–Vincent in the TIA comments.
A lot of PTSD from Wolves at home on the final day I’ll be honest
