2017/18 Premier League Fixtures Announced
The Premier League has released the list of fixtures for all the matches in the 2017/18 season. Liverpool will play their first match away at Watford on the 12th of August, while their first home fixture will be against Crystal Palace on the 19th of August.
Meanwhile December is poised to be the busiest month for the club, with a total of 7 fixtures. Liverpool’s squad strength will also be tested to its extreme in October, when they will be playing back-to-back fixtures against tough opponents Manchester United and Tottenham.
The Reds will also be reunited with former manager Rafael Benitez in late September, when they visit Newcastle United.
Given the congestion of fixtures in December, in addition to the possible Champions League and League Cup fixtures, Liverpool will have a lot of pressure to add serious depth to the squad before the season starts. Considering that January 2017 was one of the most disappointing months in recent history for Liverpool, it can also be expected that the club may perhaps consider adding new players to the squad if player absence will become a big issue in December.
