Should Arsenal do us the ultimate favour and beat Manchester City on the first day back, the Reds could secure the Premier League title by beating bitter rivals Everton.
If the Citizens win all three of their initial games, Liverpool will be crowned Champions if we’re able to pick up maximum points from our first two fixtures – the Blues and Crystal Palace.
If we get anything less than six points from Everton and Palace, and City register three wins, victory against the reigning Champions would declare us the new Champions.
Supporters have been reacting to the official announcement of the fixture on Twitter, and we’ve rounded up a selection of some of the best replies:
I smell a guard of honor in the Man City game😂😂😂👏
