With no fans able to attend due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Liverpool said the idea for the trophy lift was to honour the club’s fans, but Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp urged fans to respect social distancing measures, after thousands gathered around the club’s stadium and in the city centre following their coronation as champions last month.

Reaction

At first glance it looks like a tasty opening set of fixtures. A home game against returning sleeping giants Leeds is the perfect way to start the season.

Facing Chelsea early on is a bonus for Liverpool also, as the Reds will take on Frank Lampard’s team with the bulk of their new signings still adapting to early life in the PL.

November looks to be make-or-break for Klopp’s English champions as Liverpool will await defining back-to-back fixtures against Manchester City (A) and Leicester City (H).

The Merseyside derby will also take place within the first five PL fixtures as Liverpool make the short trip across Stanley Park on October 17.

 

Liverpool’s duel of fates with Manchester United will have to wait until 2021 with both fixtures pencilled in for next year including a trip to Old Trafford in May which could have huge ramifications regarding the Reds’ title credentials next season.

Following the fixture release, here a selection of tweets from supporters reacting to the confirmed dates ahead of Liverpool’s highly-anticipated title defence.
