Liverpool’s fixtures for the 2022/23 season have been announced and, when we look at when they play their ‘big six’ opponents, they haven’t really had the best luck in terms of scheduling.
The Reds will have to face five of their rivals away from home first, with the exception being Manchester City. They come up against Manchester United first just three games into the campaign before the end of August.
A trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea follows a month later, and they have a difficult period in October when they take on City and Arsenal in the space of a week.
The number of away fixtures against top-six teams before Christmas, though, does mean that the second half of the season is somewhat kinder.
Manchester United (A) – August 20th
Chelsea (A) – September 17th
Arsenal (A) – October 8th
Manchester City (H) – October 15th
Tottenham (A) – November 5th
Chelsea (H) – January 21st
Manchester United (H) – March 4th
Manchester City (A) – April 1st
Arsenal (H) – April 8th
Tottenham (H) – April 29th
For anyone wondering about the Merseyside derbies, the match at Goodison Park is on September 3rd, with the Anfield clash scheduled for February 11th.
