Liverpool’s first six games for Premier League 2019/20 season – what you need to know

The Reds are still reeling after falling agonisingly short of winning a maiden Premier League title last season.

Depsite losing only one game throughout the whole campaign and accumulating a remarkable 97 points, Jurgen Klopp’s men still missed out by a single point to Manchester City.

Indeed, that points total would have been enough to have won the title in every Premier League season since its inception except for in the last two years.

It was not all doom a gloom however with Liverpool going on to lift a sixth European Cup a couple of weeks later, beating Tottenham 2-0 in the final.

Klopp will be hoping that a couple of new additions will be enough to go one better this time around in the Premier League.

And fans will be happy with the way that their first few fixtures have panned out.

The Reds start the new campaign on Friday August 9 when they welcome newly promoted Norwich City to Anfield before they travel to Southampton in ther first away game.

Then it’s Arsenal at home, followed by Burnley away, Newcastle at home, and Chelsea away.

If last season is anything to go by, the games against Manchester City could go a long way to deciding where the title ends up.

Liverpool only took one point from Pep Guardiola’s men in their two league clashes last season, something that ultimately cost them the title.

Like last season, they will play City at home first, with the champions paying a visit to Anfield on November 9 before the return game at the Etihad set for April 4.

Fans will also be keen to know when the fixtures against bitter rivals Manchester United and Everton are set to be played.

Well, the Reds will travel to Old Trafford on October 19 before the return game against United on January 18 at Anfield.

And Everton are first to make the short trip across Stanley Park with Liverpool at home first in the Merseyside Derby on December 4.

The Reds will then travel Goodison Park on March 14.

In other notbale fixtures, Liverpool will travel to Newcastle on the final day of the season with their last home game being Chelsea at home.

They will play Leicester away on Boxing Day and Sheffield United at home on New Year’s Day.

Following their Champions League succes, Liverpool will also have to navigate their way through the Club World Cup next season.

The mini-competiton will take place in Qatar in December although the final dates have not been confirmed.

If last year’s competiton is anything to go by, which was held from December 12-22, Liverpool’s fixtures at home to Watford and away to West Ham could be affected.

Liverpool will play Manchester City in the Community Shield on August 4 and Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup on August 14, in between their opening two Premier League fixtures.
