It means that the Reds will be the first opponent for new Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino, with the game being the ‘Super Sunday’ clash at 4.30pm on August 13.
The first home game of the season will be against Bournemouth, on the weekend of August 19, with 61,000 fans to be in attendance following the expansion of the Anfield Road Stand.
As for the third game of the season, that sees Liverpool travel to Newcastle – the Reds certainly need to improve their away form, fast.
Liverpool’s Key Dates
The last every Merseyside derby at Goodison Park takes place in March, with the home game against Everton in October.
The return fixtures against United are in April (away) and City in March (home).
A winter break in January means there’s just two fixtures, but there will be FA Cup fixtures added there.
Six fixtures that proceed the Europa League games – those games against West Ham (H), Brighton (A), Nottm Forest (H), Brentford (H), Newcastle (H), and Man United (H) – will move to the Sunday, not the Saturday.
All fixtures are subject to change as TV selections are made throughout the season – hopefully this time they learn to make them in a timely manner for travelling supporters!
