Everton (H) – March 18
Aston Villa (H) – April 1
Liverpool (H) – April 4
Wolves (A) – April 8
Brighton (H) – April 15
Man United (A) – April 22
Liverpool’s upcoming five games:
Three games are scheduled for the first week of April. On Tuesday evening, Liverpool will visit Stamford Bridge. The Reds, like Chelsea, have not been at their best this season but remain in contention for a top-four spot.
While their Champions League chances look bleak this season, Jurgen Klopp’s men will give Potter’s men another tough test.
Man City (A) – April 1
Chelsea (A) – April 4
Arsenal (H) – April 9
Leeds (A) – April 17
Nottingham Forest (H) – April 22
Manchester United’s upcoming five games:
Towards the end of the season, one of the Blues’ toughest games. The team led by former Ajax manager Erik ten Hag will welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford as they continue to perform well.
Many believe that Ten Hag has shown that a manager does not require a lengthy period of time to implement their ideas and strategies, especially if they make significant transfer market spending. Although United’s quick return to the top four surprised many, they are still a little out of the title race.
In an effort to replicate his victory over Ten Hag from the season opener with Brighton, Potter will focus on stopping Marcus Rashford as the key threat the Blues must fend off versus United.
Newcastle (A) – April 2
Brentford (H) – April 5
Everton (H) – April 8
Nottingham Forest (A) – April 15
Chelsea (H) – April 22
