The number of matches Liverpool may play across Premier League, Europa League, FA Cup, and Carabao Cup this season

2 min read

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side will face Chelsea at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final, marking their third meeting in the final. After defeating Fulham over two legs, Liverpool could potentially replicate their feat from the 2021/22 season by reaching both domestic cup finals. They also have a fourth-round FA Cup game against Norwich on the horizon. With a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League, a domestic treble is a possibility, though Manchester City, currently in second place, could pose a challenge.

Liverpool’s European aspirations are focused on the Europa League, where they are the current favorites, after finishing fifth in the Premier League last year. If they were to reach all three finals, they would play a total of 63 games during the 2023/24 season. Looking at historical comparisons, only five teams have played more than 63 matches across all competitions in a season since the Premier League was reduced to 20 teams in 1995, with Chelsea topping the list at 69 matches in the 2012/13 season.

Liverpool has reached the 63-game mark on three occasions since 1995, most notably in the 2000/01 season under Gerard Houllier when they won the FA Cup, League Cup, and UEFA Cup. The potential for Liverpool to progress to the FA Cup and Europa League finals would present an intense final week of the season, culminating in hosting Wolves on the last day of the Premier League and then possibly playing the Europa League final in Dublin before returning to Wembley for the FA Cup final.

The prospect exists for Liverpool to play their three biggest games of the season within the span of seven days.
