Revealed! How many games the Premier League champions play in all competitions, and how many this season’s contenders will play

10 Jan

Liverpool’s FA Cup draw at home with Plymouth means the Reds face a replay on the road against the League Two club.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s team take on Southampton in the two-legged EFL Cup semi-finals, starting with the first leg this week.

Then it’s back to the Premier League for a massive match away to Manchester United.

So, will all this competitive football take its toll on Liverpool’s Premier League title challenge, or will it sharpen them up for the battles ahead?

The Reds do have the benefit of not playing European football this season, though, like Premier League leaders Chelsea.

By comparison, Manchester United are in the last 32 of the Europa League, in the EFL Cup semis and the FA Cup fourth round.

Check out the gallery above to see how many matches the champions usually play across the season, and how that compares with the fixture lists awaiting this campaign’s contenders.
