Liverpool will face West Ham United at Anfield in the opening match of the 2018-19 season.

Liverpool will face West Ham United at Anfield in their opening match of the 2018-19 season.

Jurgen Klopp's side, who are expected to be among the main title contenders for the new campaign, will kick things off against the Hammers in what will be Manuel Pellegrini's first match in charge of the visitors.

The Reds will then take on more London opposition in the shape of Crystal Palace, before a home match against Brighton & Hove Albion and a visit to former Premier League champions Leicester City.

Liverpool's first match against a fellow top-six member comes on September 15 when they will become the first visitors to Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium, before taking on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge later that month and champions Manchester City at Anfield on October 6.

December sees the Reds face Everton in the first Merseyside derby of the season, fierce rivals Manchester United and Arsenal, all of which will be played at Anfield.

Liverpool will then travel to Manchester City on New Year's Day - just three days after facing Arsenal - before the reverse fixtures against Manchester United and Everton take place on February 23 and March 2 respectively.

Klopp's side will end their campaign at home to newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers, rounding off what looks to be a fairly kind run-in which will also see them face Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United.
