Liverpool next six fixtures compared to title rivals Man City and Chelsea

Liverpool are still firmly in the Premier League title race after the latest round of matches this weekend.

The Reds claimed a narrow 1-0 win over West Ham on Saturday, with a first half goal from Sadio Mane the difference between the two teams.

Elsewhere, Manchester City ran out 4-1 winners over Manchester United to restore their six-point lead over Liverpool – but have played one game more than the Reds.

And there is still City vs Liverpool at the Etihad to come next month.

Here’s a look at City, Liverpool and Chelsea’s next six fixtures, to see how they compare…

Liverpool’s next six Premier League fixtures

Brighton (a) – March 12

The Seagulls are one of only three teams to take a point away from Anfield this season, thanks to an exceptional second half showing on the counter-attack.

The Reds threw away a two goal lead on that occasion, but with that bump in the road still fresh in the memory they will be looking to close things out far more efficiently here.

Arsenal (a) – March 16

Rearranged thanks to their involvement in the Carabao Cup final, the Reds have already won at the Emirates Stadium this season, in the semi-final second leg of the aforementioned trophy.

Never a particularly easy place to go, Liverpool will need to be in the groove to see off Mikel Arteta’s men.

Watford (h) – April 2

Relegation threatened Watford famously beat Jurgen Klopp’s side 3-0 when the Reds were on the way to their 19th league title, but supporters won’t be expecting any upsets here. Three points will be expected against Roy Hodgson’s Hornets.

Roberto Firmino will be hoping to be fit again for this one. Last time the two sides met he scored a hat-trick in a 5-0 win.

Manchester City (a) – April 10

Well here it is – the big one. Many believe that it will be impossible for Liverpool to reclaim the Premier League title without returning from the Etihad with an away win.

In what will unquestionably be the Reds’ toughest match of the season, Jurgen Klopp’s side will need to deliver an A1 performance to defeat a rampant City. Win this one though and it may be the Reds who will be holding all the cards for the run in.

Aston Villa (a) – April 16

Yet another away game, but this time it’s against a team managed by the Kop’s favorite son Steven Gerrard, whose side made the Reds work very hard for a 1-0 Anfield win back in December.

Villa have some exciting players such as Ollie Watkins and Jacob Ramsey, but it’s former Red Philippe Coutinho, who Liverpool will be keeping an eye on. Surely the Brazilian won’t put a spanner in the works. Or will he?

Everton (h) – April 23

If anyone would love to stop Liverpool from winning the title, it will be old rivals Everton, but the Blues have got a much more important reason to fight for a victory.

Frank Lampard’s Toffees have found themselves in a relegation battle and with the former Chelsea legend trying his upmost to reverse his new club’s fortunes, Liverpool can expect no easy ride from their neighbours.

The Blues famously won at Anfield last season for the first time since 1999, against a makeshift Liverpool defensive partnership, but they can expect a significantly sterner examination this time around.
