Fixture list for 2016/17
Here is the much anticipated fixture list for the following season.
Our 2nd fixture is at home to Burnley, however the club is looking at changing this to another away fixture as the main stand won’t be ready till late in month.
The Premier League are happy for the venue to be changed to Turf Moor, just need Burnley to accept the swap.However last time that Liverpool weren’t in Europe 30 of the 38 games were rescheduled due to TV demands as we were competing for the league title.
If Burnley do accept Liverpool’s request, then Liverpool’s 1st game at Anfield will be against Leicester City on September 10th. This would allow another 3 weeks for the ‘finishing touches’ including a new pitch.
Difficult start to the season..
Looking at the 1st section of games we face Arsenal, Tottenham, Leicester and Chelsea. If we can get some good results from these games we will be in a good position going into the Autumn when the European games kick in.
However the fixtures for the run in to the end of the season look pleasing – a lot of these should be 3 points. We wait and see.
