Liverpool’s late October/early November fixture list is looking very interesting indeed after a League Cup tie against Arsenal slotted into the calendar.
The Reds’ reward for easing past MK Dons is a fourth-round meeting with the Gunners.
Here’s how the revised schedule, as posted by an excited supporter, is shaping-up:
RB Salzburg (H) 2nd Oct
Leicester (H) 5th Oct
United (A) 20th Oct
Genk (A) 23rd Oct
Spurs (H) 27th Oct
Arsenal (H) 29/30th Oct
Aston Villa (a) 2nd Nov
Genk (H) 5th Nov
Man City (H) 10th Nov
Oh my word.

So between October 20 and November 10, the Reds will face four big-six opponents and play two Champions League ties.
Liverpool will travel to Manchester United and Spurs within a week at the end of the month before a potentially youthful team plays host to Arsenal.
The culmination of this tricky but blockbuster run is an absolutely massive home game against Manchester City.
Jurgen Klopp will have to extract every ounce of performance from his team in that one if they are to claim what could be a crucial victory in the title race.
By the time they face the champions, the Reds could have broken the record for consecutive Premier League victories.
As it stands, they are only three wins away from tying it.
