Reds Facing Fixture Pile Up

With the Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur already called off this Sunday (1oth January) the Reds could be facing a fixture pile up. Liverpool Football Club, in association with the local council, will have to work around the clock to clear the roads and pathways in time for the visit of Reading, on Wednesday night, in the FA Cup 3rd round replay.

If that match on Wednesday has to be rearranged, and the Reds progress to the 4th round, then they could be facing a gruelling schedule of 5 games in 14 days, with Premier League games against Stoke City, Wolves and Bolton alongside a the cup tie against Reading, and the possible match versus Burnley to follow.

Rafa Benitez will be depserate to play the cup tie against Reading on Wednesday as, with FA Cup and Europa League commitments this season, the Reds squad could face burnout towards the end of the football season.

January Fixtures:
13th January- Reading (H) FA Cup Third Round Replay (In doubt because of poor weather conditions)
16th January- Stoke City (A) Premier League
19th/20th January- Possible dates to play the Reading replay, if postponed.
23rd January- Possible cup tie with Burnley, if the Reds progress to the 4th round
26th January- Wolves (A) Premier League
30th January- Bolton (H) Premier League
