Three fixtures will shape Liverpool’s season as Jürgen Klopp and his players spot an opportunity

The season is now in full swing; the Premier League is five games in, the Champions League group stage has started, and teams are starting to find their rhythm.

Liverpool currently sit at the top of the Premier League standings with 13 points out of a possible 15 and picked up three points in their opening Champions League game with a 3-2 win over AC Milan.null

With September drawing to a close, October looks like a daunting month for Jürgen Klopp’s side with Manchester City, Atletico Madrid and Manchester United all ready to do battle.

Liverpool vs Man City is a huge match in English football these days due to the success both clubs have had in recent years — the last four Premier League titles have been won by these two clubs.

Apart from last season when no fans were allowed inside stadia, Pep Guardiola’s side have endured a torrid time at Anfield — most notably during the 3-0 win for Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the Champions League back in 2018.

The last time these two went toe-to-toe inside of a packed Anfield was in November 2019 and Liverpool came out 3-1 winners to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League.

Liverpool now have a three-point lead over their title rivals and they could be in a similar situation on Sunday, October 3 to the one they faced in 2019.

After the October international break, Liverpool travel to a ground that will always be in the hearts of everyone connected with the club as they go back to the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid to take on Spanish champions Atletico Madrid.

Atletico were probably the one side in pot one of the Champions League draw that you would have wanted to avoid, but Liverpool will fear no one and with this being the group stage, a point in the Wanda would suffice.

The following Sunday, Liverpool will travel to Old Trafford to take on fierce rivals Manchester United. For the first time in years, Manchester United are seen as a genuine title contender and this will only add to this rivalry.

Liverpool were 4-2 victors at Old Trafford in May — three points that were vital for the Reds to finish in the top four.

This time around, both sides have their sights set on major prizes come the end of the season and Manchester United’s new signings will be looking to get a taste of a match that is watched all around the world.
