You know it’s the summer when we see the fixtures released for the new season and you can start to get a little excited at the prospect of watching Liverpool play again.

According to the sports analytics company, Arne Slot has been given the easiest start of any coach in the division with an average opponent rating of 83.7.

Whether this rings true can only be found out after the end of our first five fixtures but it’s certainly better than being at the top of this list.
