You've seen the headlines but there's a few things you may have missed in those

Liverpool's 2017-18 Premier League fixtures were released on Wednesday, as fans' attentions begin to turn to August and the start of the new campaign.

You'll know the headlines by now. Watford away to start with, Arsenal and Manchester City early on. The derby dates will be in your diaries, the Boxing Day and New Year's Day fixtures registered. The more optimistic will even have noted a kind-looking run in for Jurgen Klopp's side.

One is guaranteed. The Reds visit Tottenham on October 21. Mauricio Pochettino's men, of course, will be playing all their home games at the national stadium this season as work is completed on the new White Hart Lane.

A trip worth making, for certain. Let's hope there are a couple more Wembley visits too...

Relations between the two clubs are strained, to say the least. Saints fans have grown accustomed to seeing Liverpool buy their best talent, but their courting of Virgil Van Dijk this summer seems to be the straw that broke the camel's back.

Whether Van Dijk will be involved for either side when the sides meet at Anfield on November 18 remains to be seen. The return at St Mary's on February 10 promises to be a frosty affair.

The first 'profile' game of the season sees Arsenal visit Anfield on August 26.

But the Reds will play the Gunners AGAIN before Christmas, visiting the Emirates on December 23.

In 2000/01, Liverpool lost at Highbury in August before gaining revenge with a 4-0 thrashing at Anfield in December.

It looks like it. And that would be the first time since 1994. Miinnehomma and all that.

The Reds are scheduled to face Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday April 14, the same day as the biggest event in horse racing takes place at Aintree.

The game is unlikely to be switched to the Sunday, as that would mean Liverpool playing on the anniversary of Hillsborough. A Monday night game is a possibility, and might be advisable...

Liverpool have been to both the John Smith's Stadium and the AmEx in recent years, but never for a league game.

Their first league visit to Brighton since March 1983 will take place on December 2, while they will journey to Huddersfield on January 30.
