Old friends and new foes await Reds next season


13th June 2017

Liverpool will discover their Premier League fixture list for 2017-18 on Wednesday, but already know they can look forward to meeting old friends and new teams from August.

The promotion back to the top flight of Brighton and Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town means first league meetings with the two sides for the Reds since 1983 and 1972 respectively.

Newcastle United, meanwhile, represent much more familiar foes after just a single year down in the Championship and especially given the incumbent manager – one Rafael Benitez – held the reins at Anfield for six years.

Here is the lowdown on the newly-promoted teams…

It is little over a year since Liverpool last met the Magpies, a 2-2 draw on Merseyside in April 2016 that did not ultimately prove helpful in the visitors’ battle to avoid relegation.

The north east outfit tumbled out of the top tier in 18th place that season, two points short of survival behind rivals Sunderland.

But Benitez committed himself to the cause of returning Newcastle to the Premier League and promptly guided them to the Championship title last term, a point ahead of Brighton after 46 testing games.
