Liverpool have six fixtures in September 2021 across three different competitions. We have a look at them all and offer some predictions.
Liverpool will compete across the Premier League, Champions League and League Cup in September 2021 over six fixtures. There’s a varying degree of difficulty, too, as the Reds attempt to kickstart a charge towards three trophies.
12th – Leeds United (Away)
This should be an interesting game. Leeds United are undoubtedly a dangerous team but they’re also one you can get at.
We saw that on last season’s opening day in a thrilling 4-3 win at Anfield. This could be more of the same.
One strange factor, though, is the Brazilian national team. An argument over players could see Liverpool without Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino. Leeds could miss Raphinha.
It’ll be a tough one but we expect Liverpool to win.
Leeds 2-3 Liverpool
15th – AC Milan (Home)
Bizarrely, this will be the first time AC Milan play at Anfield. The seven-time European champions arrive in their first Champions League game for some time.
Again, we’d expect Liverpool to win this – assuming they have a full squad. The Reds are the better side but they’ll have to be at their strongest to see off Milan.
Liverpool 2-0 Milan
18th – Crystal Palace (Home)
Should be a straightforward win. Palace are still finding their feet under Patrick Vieira and Liverpool can take advantage.
Hopefully, this is the most routine game of the lot.
Liverpool 3-0 Palace
21st – Norwich City (Away)
This is a League Cup game and should be an interesting one. We’re expecting Jurgen Klopp to try out some youngsters and squad players.
One of those is Kaide Gordon – who everyone has high hopes for.
The result here depends on the Canaries and how seriously they take the competition. We’d back Liverpool against anything but their starting XI.
Norwich 0-1 Liverpool
25th – Brentford (Away)
Things get complicated here. Liverpool’s starting XI would see out a routine win but we expect Klopp to rotate. That’s because Liverpool’s two games after this are huge. The boss will want to go full-strength for them.
So this might not be the most fluid Liverpool side. We still expect them to win this but it might not be as clear-cut as you’d think.
Brentford 0-2 Liverpool
28th – Porto (Away)
A huge game. Liverpool are in a tough Champions League group and Porto are the most likely team to prevent their progression.
However, Liverpool’s game after this is at home against Manchester City to kick off October. We still think Klopp will go full-strength but it’s not guaranteed.
Still, the Reds’ record against Porto is fantastic under Klopp and we’ll back them to win this.
Liverpool 3-1 Porto
