Well, our opening fixture is an away game against Arsenal. This could be the best way to start our season, if we pick up a win it’ll surely place us in good stead to push on from there, however a loss could knock off any positivity we had going into the new season.

Our first three away games are challenging, against Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea. This will be a big test of our strength, and will provide Jurgen Klopp’s side with the chance to prove they can challenge for silverware.

In terms of opening home games, we take on Burnely, Leicester City and Hull City. It’s be interesting to see how the champions fare next season, and hopefully we can help show them they won’t do it twice.

December is the busiest month, and hopefully some ‘easier’ fixtures can help us prepare for our first clash against Everton. Middlesbrough on the last day should be a good fixture if we need some points that late into the season.
