Liverpool FC Need to Turn Their Fortunes Around When it Comes to Early Kick-Offs

Jurgen Klopp has never attempted to hide his distaste for 12.30pm kick-offs, but he will know his side need to turn their fortunes around when it comes to early starts.

The early Saturday kick-offs last season did not leave many happy memories, with the Reds struggling to find any form so early into a weekend. But Liverpool’s return from the international break sees them scheduled to meet Wolves at 12.30pm on Saturday, and they need to wipe the slate clean in the time slot.

Liverpool’s Poor Record in Early Kick-Offs

Of the six lunchtime starts in 2022/23, the Reds won none, drew three and lost three. In that time, they conceded eight and scored only three.

The good news is that we expect to see them on the schedule less this season due to involvement in the Europa League, but it is still a hurdle the Reds need to rediscover how to clear.
