Often has been the case this season where the Reds have faced a heavy burden of match fixtures across a short span of time, with them having already played 30 games this season since September.
The next flourish of games, however, will be a real test for the Reds with them facing 5 games over the next two weeks before the end of January, which is an average of a game every 2.8 days to be precise including two games against Manchester United.
One of the main downfalls of the clubs packed schedule this season has been the number of injuries sustained to the first team squad, with the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez sidelined for the rest of the season, as well as the likes of Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Joel Matip, Naby Keita, and Diogo Jota spending time on the sidelines just to name a few.
Can Liverpool beat Manchester United?
Unlike in previous campaign where the Reds had often managed to make it to the end of each campaign without too much damage from injuries, this season has proved very different and Jurgen Klopp and his side has been largely affected by fitness issues – more than any other club in the league so far this season.
I think this will prove a pivotal time in the Reds calendar this season, with the league currently very tight to call and only 7 points separating 1st and 10th in the Premier League currently.
So long as the club can keep momentum and regain some good form after their recent win against Aston Villa, there is hope that Klopp and his side can get things back on track to retain the Premier League title at the end of the season.
What do you think Liverpool fans, will this period prove tough for the squad? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section down below…
