Liverpool’s attempt at a Premier League title defence ultimately ended up being a disappointing one last term, despite starting strongly; their capabilities of even finishing inside the top four were in doubt after a dramatic dip in form; caused partly by the absence of defensive mainstay, Virgil van Dijk.
They did, however, manage to claim a third-placed finish on the final day of the season after a last-gasp push – and Jurgen Klopp’s side could very well keep up the momentum this year.
Ahead of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign, we’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Liverpool – from their upcoming league fixtures, to the latest football betting odds for the club this term.
Who is the manager of Liverpool?
Jurgen Klopp made Liverpool champions of England, Europe and the world within five years of his appointment at Anfield in October 2015. The charismatic German ended the Reds’ 30-year wait for a league title in the summer of 2020, this was followed by a third place finish a year later; a good job considering the teams injury crisis. How will he and his team fare this season?
Who are Liverpool’s key players?
Mohamed Salah is the first player on the Liverpool team sheet. He is the Reds’ main goal threat and you can see why – his worst Premier League goal involvement tally for Liverpool in a season is 28. Captain Jordan Henderson and talisman Virgil van Dijk both missed lengthy periods through injury last term and with Van Dijk returning, last season’s leaky defence gets their desperately needed leader back. Look out for Sadio Mane to return to his free-scoring ways this coming season after a relatively slow campaign in scoring terms last year (11 goals).
Where is Liverpool’s stadium?
Anfield is one of the iconic football stadiums in England. It resides in Liverpool and has a seating capacity of 53,394 – making it the seventh largest football stadium in England. It has been the home of the Reds since their formation in 1892.
When is the next Liverpool Premier League game?
Liverpool fans and football fans, in general, should be in for a treat this Saturday as Liverpool host Chelsea at Anfield on August 28. Both teams go into the match on good form having won their last two games and both managers will have high hopes they can send a message to the rest of the league with a dominant display.

What’s the latest Liverpool transfer and injury news?
RB Leipzig centre back Ibrahima Konate has already been signed in a deal worth around £36 million, and other new faces are expected to follow as Klopp looks to tackle the familiar threat of Manchester City and the growing prominence of Chelsea.
Liverpool’s current injury list remains small as Klopp expects to have an almost full squad available for the Chelsea game. Having picked up a knock in training, Milner was not involved in the Burnley game, but he looks set to make his return albeit maybe off the bench. Fabinho may not be involved on the weekend as a result of personal issues, but we are likely to see the return of Robertson, should Klopp wish him to start over the in-form Tsimikas.
