Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will face a crunch match away to Arsenal on the opening weekend of the 2016/17 season.

After the huge clash with the Gunners, the Reds will face newly promoted Burnley at home before taking on Tottenham away.

It means the Reds face a tough start to the campaign with Arsenal (A), Burnley (H) Tottenham (A), Leicester (H) and Chelsea (A) as their first five matches.

Liverpool play the first Merseyside derby of the season on December 17 when they make the short journey to Ronald Koeman’s Everton with the return fixture scheduled for April 1.

It will be Klopp vs. Jose Mourinho on October 15 at Anfield while Liverpool travel to Old Trafford on January 14.

Over the festive season, Liverpool host Stoke City on Boxing Day while they travel to Sunderland on January 2.

If Liverpool are playing for something towards the end of the season, they will fancy their chances with a favourable run-in. Their final five fixtures are: Crystal Palace (H), Watford (A), Southampton (H), West Ham (A) and Middlesbrough (H).

Of course, with no European football at Anfield next season, there will be more Saturday fixtures for Liverpool rather than playing on a Sunday.

All fixtures are subject to change due to television rights.
