While many will have been looking forward to watching Liverpool take on Chelsea on Sunday before it got postponed, the pressure on the fixture list may have become unbearable for the Reds.
As we know, the international break is now upon us and while there will be some that will be using it as an opportunity to take a break from Premier League or Champions League betting on sites available at www.apostas-desportivas.org, it should be noted that there are still 13 games left to be played before the beginning of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
A total of 17 days will have passed between Liverpool’s last game – the clash against Ajax in the UCL – and their next match, a tie against Brighton and Hove Albion on October 1. That game, though, will begin a schedule of 13 games to be played inside 42 days.
The Reds will be required to navigate eight Premier League matches, as well as the remaining four Champions League ties. Additionally, they will then be required to go up against League One outfit Derby County in the League Cup, too.
This will mean that Jurgen Klopp’s side will be expected to play at least two games a week, for the next six weeks. Admittedly, it is a schedule that will be similar to those that also have European commitments, but you can not help and feel that there is simply too much to cram in before the major finals this winter.
This is the schedule:
Brighton (H) – Saturday, Oct 1
Rangers (H) – Champions League – Tuesday, Oct 4
Arsenal (A) – Sunday, Oct 9
Rangers (A) – Champions League – Wednesday, Oct 12
Man City (H) – Sunday, Oct 16
West Ham (H) – Wednesday, Oct 19
Nottm. Forest (A) – Saturday, Oct 22
Ajax (A) – Champions League – Wednesday, Oct 26
Leeds (H) – Saturday, Oct 29
Napoli (H) – Champions League – Tuesday, Nov 1
Tottenham (A) – Sunday, Nov 6
Derby (H) – League Cup Third Round – Wednesday, Nov 9
Southampton (H) – Saturday, Nov 12
Liverpool have already had their problems in regards to injuries, which has perhaps contributed to their poor start in this year’s Premier League campaign.
Klopp’s side have only managed to win two of their six games played thus far in England’s top-flight, while they have been held to three draws against the likes of Fulham, Crystal Palace, and Everton, while a defeat to Manchester United was also disappointing for fans.
That was also followed by a 4-1 defeat to SSC Napoli in the UEFA Champions League, but the victory in their last game against Ajax will have hopefully put things behind them and get the team back on the straight and narrow.
