Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side are struggling to regain momentum as their disappointing start to the Premier League season continued with a draw against Everton on Saturday afternoon.

While a point at Goodison Park in the Merseyside derby can often be seen as an acceptable result, it was the Reds’ third draw of the season after just six games. The loss to Manchester United means Jurgen Klopp’s only wins so far this season were a 9-0 win over dismal Bournemouth and a last-second triumph over Newcastle United last Wednesday night.

 

That leaves the 2021-22 Premier League runners-up with just nine points from their first six games, currently sixth in the Premier League. With Arsenal and champions Manchester City already building up plenty of steam, a decent streak is needed to try and make up for lost ground. Here’s a look at who the Reds will face in the next five league games.

Wolverhampton Wanderers (h) – Saturday 10th September – 3pm

 

 

Bruno Lage will bring his Wolves side to Anfield next Saturday to beat Liverpool’s last two opponents – Bournemouth and Newcastle – who have given the Reds their only two wins of the season so far. The Midlands club recorded their first Premier League win of the season on Saturday, beating Southampton 1-0 at home.

Before that, three draws and two minor losses had started slowly, but a win this weekend brings them within three points of the Reds who head to Anfield next weekend. Home fans will want to keep an eye on new signing Matheus Nunes, who has been linked to a move to Liverpool all summer. Chelsea (a) – Sunday 18 September – 4.30pm

 

Like Liverpool, Chelsea did not have the start to the season they expected. Surprising defeats to Leeds United and Southampton put pressure on Thomas Tuchel, but a late goal against West Ham on Saturday, plus a controversial equalizer canceled by Hammers moments later, gave the Blues their third win of the season, a leap forward. for Red in the process.

Last season the two teams played an epic 2-2 thriller at Stamford Bridge and you wouldn’t bet this year’s game would have produced a similar result.

Brighton (h) – Saturday 1st October – 3pm

 

Perhaps the surprise package of the season so far. The Seagulls are well on their way to a flyer, winning three of their first five games. With just one loss to Fulham and Leicester on Sunday afternoon, Graham Potter’s side are currently fourth and looking to consolidate their high position.

Despite their current decent form, Brighton are not a team Klopp would likely take lightly. The Seagulls drew 2-2 with the Reds on two goals last season and a year earlier left Merseyside with all three points thanks to a 1-0 away win through Steven Alzate. Definitely a tricky home game.
