Liverpool have started the season with seven wins from seven games and if they can make it 11 from 11 then there won’t be many people left to doubt their title credentials. The Reds have got Chelsea home and away as their next two games before facing Napoli in Naples and then returning to Anfield to host Premier League champions, Manchester City.

Tough is an understatement. Liverpool fans will be eagerly awaiting their clashes with Chelsea, who dropped their first points of the season with a 0-0 draw at West Ham yesterday. On Wednesday they face The Blues at Anfield in the Carabao Cup but then they have just three days to prepare for a trip to Stamford Bridge where they’ll face Chelsea again, this time in the Premier League.
Even if they do overcome two games against Maurizio Sarri’s Blues, the next test will be Sarri’s former side, Napoli. The Italian side are no pushovers and in Carlo Ancelotti, they have a class coach who can mastermind a victory over anyone on his day. Then, to complete the set, the fourth game that Jurgen Klopp’s men face in the space of just ten days is Manchester City. Klopp beat the Citizens three times out of four last season and he’ll be desperate to make that four wins in his last five meetings when Pep Guardiola’s side come to Anfield on October 7th.

The fans are expecting some big performances and four wins, although that will be a huge ask for this talented side.
