Man City is in the FA Cup and Europa League fixtures; The Reds’ season is set to hinge on the next three weeks.


Liverpool has the chance of winning a quadruple this season, and their next six matches could define whether they end up winning all four competitions they are in, Premier League reports.


The Reds secured their first piece of silverware this season when beating Chelsea 1-0 in the EFL Cup final on Sunday thanks to Virgil van Dijk’s extra-time header.


In three weeks, Liverpool could be closer to a 20th league title while sitting in the FA Cup semi-finals and the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals.


So, who do they face in their quest for all four trophies?


28 Feb – Liverpool v Southampton (FA Cup)


Though Liverpool could be without 12 first-team players for their fifth-round FA Cup tie against Southampton on Wednesday, Jurgen Klopp and his side will believe they can overcome the Championship club.


Liverpool have only lost once in their last 13 matches against Saints and are victorious in their previous six encounters at Anfield.


Southampton comes into this match in poor form after losing three of their last four games in the Championship as they sit in fourth place, five points away from second-placed Leeds United.


Liverpool extended their excellent run over the Saints with an emphatic 3-0 win at Anfield thanks to goals from teenagers Lewis Koumas and Jayden Danns.


2 Mar – Nott’m Forest v Liverpool (Premier League)


There is another quick turnaround for Liverpool as they face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground this Saturday.

20 20 Sheffield Utd 26 -44 13

*Everton deducted six points following a breach of the Premier League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules.


It is arguably a stricter fixture than many would think. Liverpool haven’t won away at Forest in 13 league matches, with their last top-flight victory coming back in October 1984.


7 Mar – Sparta Prague v Liverpool (Europa League)

Though Liverpool will be favorites to beat Sparta Prague in round 16 of the Europa League, the tie could still challenge the Reds given their opponents’ form.


Sparta is the league leader in the Czech First League and has only lost once this season. They also produced a superb comeback to beat Galatasaray in the last stage of the Europa League, winning 6-4 on aggregate.


And Liverpool could have at least one eye on a huge match that comes just three days later.


10 Mar – Liverpool v Man City (Premier League)


For the final time, Klopp and Pep Guardiola will go head-to-head in a vast title encounter between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield.


Klopp will know that victory could go a long way towards securing a second Premier League Trophy.


Liverpool will go into a potentially decisive duel buoyed by the fact that they have only lost once at home against Man City since 2003.


The title race

Position Club Played GD Points
1 Liverpool 26 +38 60
2 Man City 26 +33 59
3 Arsenal 26 +39 58


14 Mar – Liverpool v Sparta Prague (Europa League)


Liverpool will hope this affair won’t be as tense as the last time Sparta came to Anfield in February 2011 when they needed Dirk Kuyt to strike in the 86th minute to seal a 1-0 aggregate win for the Reds.

16/17 Mar – Man Utd v Liverpool (FA Cup)


If Liverpool are to win all four trophies, they will have to do it the hard way after being drawn against their biggest rivals in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.


Manchester United supporters will no doubt be keen to see their team battle for a result that undermines their fierce rivals’ hopes of winning the trophy in Klopp’s final campaign.


The Red Devils will undoubtedly be tricky opponents, given that they are the only team to prevent Liverpool from scoring this season when the two sides met at Anfield in December.


Can Liverpool do it?


Two seasons ago, Liverpool won both domestic trophies, competed in the title race until the last match of the season, and reached the UEFA Champions League final, losing to Real Madrid, so many of their players will know what it takes to go the distance in all four competitions.


And unlike in 2022, the title is in Liverpool’s hands, while the opposition in the Europa League is likely more accessible than in the Champions League.


While many battles are ahead, Klopp may get a fairytale ending beyond his wildest dreams.
