Liverpool will be aiming to get better than the fourth-place finish they achieved last season and the way the fixtures are set up suggests they have a good chance of doing so.
The Christmas period is always considered to be an important one in the title race, and during that hectic few days the Reds have been handed a rather kind run. After tackling Arsenal away a couple of days before Christmas, they are then faced with home matches against Swansea and Leicester, followed by a trip to Burnley in their first game of 2018.
Should the run in be tight for Jurgen Klopp’s men, it also looks fairly kind, with the exception of a tough away trip to Chelsea on the penultimate weekend of the season.
More immediately, Klopp will see fixtures against Arsenal and Manchester City in August and appreciate there is no time for his team to settle down into the new campaign if they are to challenge from the outset.
