Liverpool will be hoping to finish October unbeaten when they face Arsenal at Anfield tonight and fans on Twitter are confident of another strong month when considering the Reds’ upcoming fixtures.
November sees Liverpool face Aston Villa and Crystal Palace away in the Premier League, along with important home games against Manchester City and Brighton in the league, as well as Genk and Napoli in the Champions League.
Liverpool have, of course, started the season in superb form, and currently sit six points clear of closest rivals Manchester City. The game against City on the 10th November will have added importance for Jurgen Klopp’s side, as it may offer them the chance to go nine points clear at the top.
Fans were not worried about the prospect of facing Pep Guardiola’s side, however, and when asked by @AnfieldWatch how many wins they expected the team to pick up in the next five games, many fans were confident of a clean sweep.
Some of the thoughts from Liverpool fans about their upcoming fixtures can be seen in the tweets below.
We can win all this game our boys are really playing good soccer currently .

Arsenal are in a bad place rn, so we should beat them.
Villa should be easily swept aside.
Genk should be easily swept aside.
City at home is winnable, but I’d expect a draw.
Palace at home is a potential banana skin, but they don’t have a good home record so we should be fine.

Liverpool fans are clearly confident of another impressive month, despite some tough games, notably against Manchester City and high-flyers Crystal Palace.
What do we think?
Jurgen Klopp’s side are in superb form, with three points surely expected against Aston Villa and Genk. Arsenal may prove tricky in the Carabao Cup, especially after it was announced by assistant manager Pep Lijnders that Liverpool would play a youthful side. Crystal Palace away could also prove difficult for Klopp’s side and fans will be hoping to avoid a repeat of what happened five years ago at Selhurst Park that ultimately cost them the title in 2014.
Manchester City at home is clearly the game of most importance for Liverpool and fans can be confident of remaining unbeaten against their closest competitors, with City without a win at Anfield since 2003.
