Our win over Arsenal last weekend marked the start of an unusual start to the new season – all four of our first games are away from home.
We face Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday, Burton Albion in the League Cup at the Pirelli Stadium at Tuesday, and then Spurs at White Hart Lane next weekend.
Our first home of the season will be against Leicester on September 1oth.
“I can’t exactly describe the advantage of a home game – but there is an advantage,” said Klopp.
“But I would think about it if I could change it, and I can’t change it. We have the situation with the new stand, we knew it for a long time, and so that’s absolutely clear.
“When the fixtures came out we knew the second matchday was Burnley, that’s difficult enough. It would’ve been difficult enough if it was here, there are no easy games to play in this league.”
“That we play [at Turf Moor] is not something we really think about.”
On the flip side, all these away games mean will have a home game deficit to make up after Christmas in the business end of the season, which could suit us.
