Jürgen Klopp appears to have been handed one of the toughest opening sequences imaginable with away trips to Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea along with home games against newly-promoted Burnley and champions Leicester City.
Liverpool fans will be looking forward to organizing their welcoming party for Jose Mourinho, the new Manchester United manager, who takes his side to Anfield in Oct 15.
The first Merseyside derby of the season takes place on Dec 17 when Liverpool take the short journey across Stanley Park to face Ronald Koeman’s sde at Goodison Park – the return leg at Anfield will be played on April 1.
Following that trip to Goodison Park, Liverpool have a tough run of fixtures that includes a home game with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City on New Year’s Eve before, a fortnight later, heading up the East Lancs Road for their game with United at Old Trafford on Jan 14.
A fortnight after the United game, Liverpool host Chelsea on Feb 1 before, 10 days later, Spurs visit Anfield. Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal visit Anfield on April 3.
Liverpool fans will be buoyed by their final run of games which, in theory, will offer them plenty of opportunities to pick up points.

Getting To Anfield
Anfield is located about 2 miles north of Liverpool city centre in the middle of the Anfield area. Just half a mile away, separated by Stanley Park, lies Goodison Park, the home of Liverpool rivals Everton.
If coming from the M57 north, exit at junction 4 toward Liverpool/A580. Follow the A580 toward the city for almost 4 miles, and, after having passed Walton Hall Park on your right, turn left onto Queens Drive (A5058). After half a mile turn right at the traffic lights onto Utting Avenue. Continue until you see the ground on your right.
Coming from the south or east, approach the city on the M62 and follow for A5058 Queens Drive. Stay on the A5058 for about 3 miles, and turn left at the traffic lights at Utting Avenue. Continue until you see the stadium on your right.
If using public transport, take bus 17 from Queens Square bus station, which lies almost opposite Liverpool Lime Street train station in Liverpool’s centre. Alternatively, one can take bus 26 or 27 from Paradise street, also in the centre, or bus 917 from St John’s Lane. All buses leave you directly at the ground.
