Our season will now kick-off at Stoke City on Sunday August 9 with a 4pm start. The match at the Britannia Stadium is a rematch of last season’s finale and will provide Brendan Rodgers’ charges with the perfect chance to redeem themselves for THAT 6-1 humiliation.

The first game at Anfield, against AFC Bournemouth, will now take place on Monday August 17, starting at 7pm.

This will be the first of two Monday games. A week later, we will travel to Arsenal for a challenging encounter at the Emirates Stadium.

Our eagerly anticipated trip to Old Trafford has also been moved. We now take on Manchester United at 5.30pm on Saturday September 12. All four of those matches will be broadcast by Sky Sports.

The home game against newly promoted Norwich City will now take place on Sunday September 20, kicking off at 4pm, while the first Merseyside Derby of the campaign has been moved to Sunday October 4. A start time has yet to be confirmed. This is due to the start of our Europa League campaign.
