Comparing Liverpool and Manchester City’s Premier League fixtures

Liverpool sit atop the Premier League with just 16 games left to play. After Saturday’s nervy 1-0 win over Brighton, the Reds are seven points ahead of Manchester City. The Cityzens will play Monday, January 14th against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Presumably, Manchester City will draw three points closer with just four separating the two teams with 16 games to go.

Both sides will return to Champions League play in February, but Manchester City are the only side of the two still in the Carabao Cup and FA Cup. The added fixtures could weaken Pep Guardiola’s team’s chances of back to back titles.

Here is a breakdown of Liverpool and Manchester City’s Premier League fixtures.

Liverpool:

  • Crystal Palace (H)
  • Leicester (H)
  • West Ham (A)
  • Bournemouth (H)
  • Man United (A)
  • Watford (H)
  • Everton (A)
  • Burnley (H)
  • Fulham (A)
  • Tottenham (H)
  • Southampton (A)
  • Chelsea (H)
  • Cardiff (A)
  • Huddersfield (H)
  • Newcastle (A)
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers (H)

Theoretically, Liverpool’s most difficult games left are Manchester United, Tottenham, and Chelsea. Although there is room for a slip-up in other matches.

Manchester City:

  • Wolverhampton Wanderers (H)
  • Huddersfield (A)
  • Newcastle (A)
  • Arsenal (H)
  • Chelsea (H)
  • Everton (A)
  • West Ham (H)
  • Bournemouth (A)
  • Watford (H)
  • Man United (A)
  • Fulham (A)
  • Cardiff (H)
  • Crystal Palace (A)
  • Tottenham (H)
  • Burnley (A)
  • Leicester (H)
  • Brighton (A)

Liverpool Reds FC Blog’s take:

Manchester City’s four-game span against Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, and West Ham shouldn’t be taken lightly. If the Cityzens are going to slip-up, this will be the point in their fixture list. Add in FA Cup matches and Manchester City could run the risk of having tired star players. Moreover, the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, and Sergio Aguero have all missed time this year and could go down with further injury issues.
