Spoiler alert: Liverpool play every team home and away.

Oh hey! It’s that time of year again. New fixture list time, to be precise. Of course, normally the season would already be underway, but these are not normal times.

Normally Liverpool’s fixture list is the perfect excuse to avoid large social gatherings, but corona also sorted that problem. So. You know. Swings and roundabouts.

Normally I do a big breakdown when the list is released, but the Premier League pushed up the release date from tomorrow to today, and wrong-footed me in the processes. Anyway, here’s the crudely copy-and-pasted fixture list (Derbies, plus Manchester City in italics):

The take away here is that games, especially when factoring cup competitions, will be coming at us thick and fast. Also, given the fact that matches will continue being played behind closed doors for the foreseeable future, we can probably expect some surprising results.

There are a few stretches of games that will give us pause—including the open five matches! Chelsea, Villa, and Everton away are rarely fun trips, and Leeds United and Arsenal will be rather “unknown quantities” when they visit Anfield.

Klopp will no doubt be looking to once again get off to a flying start, and take advantage of yet another fairly generous December and Early January. If he navigates these periods as well as he has in recent years, we should find ourselves in a great position once again come the turn of the year.
