Liverpool face three away games in six days including early Saturday kick-off after Premier League TV changes confirmed

LIVERPOOL are facing a TRIO of away matches following the Premier League’s announcement of their reshuffled fixture schedule.

The title-chasing Reds are facing the daunting prospect of three consecutive matches away from Anfield late next month following the confirmation of their rescheduled Merseyside derby with Everton on April 28.

Jurgen Klopp‘s troops will close out April with consecutive trips to Fulham, Everton and West Ham – all of which will take place in the space of six days.

And to make matters worse for the Merseysiders, their trip to the London Stadium to take on West Ham will be for a 12:30 kick-off.

The outgoing Klopp isn’t a fan of early kick-offs and voiced his discontent towards them ahead of their clash with the Hammers last September.

The German said: “It’s no problem Thursday-Sunday.

“It would be better if we played a little bit later but people misunderstand it when you talk about the 12.30pm.

“It is only two and a half hours before the 3pm games, that is true but it is completely different when you have a pre-match meal at 9am.

“It means the boys are really not there yet because they come from a completely different time zone.

“And everyone who has ever had jet lag knows how that feels.”

The three consecutive away fixtures could have a detrimental effect on Liverpool’s bid to win the Premier League title.

The announcement of the latest TV schedule has been much kinder to Liverpool’s immediate title rivals Arsenal, who will play three matches in eight days.

Why More Penalties Are Being Scored

The Gunners will now face Wolves at Molineux on Saturday, April 20, with the Sky Sports-aired match match getting underway at 7:30pm.

Mikel Arteta‘s troops’ rescheduled clash with Chelsea takes place three days later and will be followed by their North London derby against bitter rivals Tottenham on April 28.
