Liverpool handed nightmare start to 2023/24 Premier League season as horror fixtures are released | The Sun

June 15, 2023

LIVERPOOL have been handed a nightmare start to next season's Premier League.

The Reds are looking to bounce back after a below par season saw them finish outside the top four.

However, they face a nightmare opening fixture against Chelsea, who themselves have been given a horror start to the season.

Like last season, Jurgen Klopp's side will be in West London for their season opener as they visit Stamford Bridge on August 13.

Liverpool have not beaten the Blues in the Premier League since September 2020.

And their winless streak at Chelsea's home stretches back even further to September 2019.

August 19 sees Liverpool host Bournemouth at Anfield, which could see a repeat of the 9-0 drubbing they inflicted on the Cherries in their first home game last season.

Liverpool's final August fixture sees another tricky match away at Newcastle on August 26.

September 2 sees Liverpool return play at home for the second time with a match against Unai Emery's Aston Villa – a game which essentially cost the Reds top four.

Mohamed Salah and co. then travel away to Wolves on September 16 for another tough away game.

The first Merseyside derby of the season will come at Anfield on October 21, before they travel to Treble-winning Manchester City on November 25.

Meanwhile, Christmas could prove to be an icy period with back-to-back clashes against title hopefuls Manchester United and Arsenal.

Liverpool hold title ambitions of their own but some fans think those dreams could be dashed after the first few fixtures.

One fan said: "Just looking at those Liverpool fixtures. First lot of away fixtures are shocking. Will be out of the title race again by end of October."

Another added: "The worst thing about the difficulty of Liverpool's start to the season, is how easy a start Manchester City have. They will win at least 6 of their opening 7. Thus Liverpool have to hit the ground running or the title could be gone within weeks."
