Having been eliminated from the Champions League at the hands of frequent foes Real Madrid last week - as a 1-0 defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu saw the Reds hit with their heaviest-ever European aggregate defeat - Liverpool have just 12 games left a turbulent season.
Of those 12, which are all Premier League fixtures, Liverpool will face Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham before the end of the season. However, they are still waiting to find out when their postponed clash with Fulham will be rescheduled for.
Marco Silva's side had been pencilled in to travel to Anfield on Saturday, March 18 but their advancement to the FA Cup quarter-finals meant the Londoners instead made the journey to Old Trafford to face Manchester United for a place in the final four of the competition and a Wembley semi-final against Brighton and Hove Albion next month.

But following Fulham's 3-1 defeat, and with both sides now having just Premier League fixtures to oblige to between now and the end of the season, there is a clearer indication of when the Whites could be rescheduled to make their seasonal trip to the red half of Merseyside.
The first opportunity appears to be in just over three weeks' time when the quarter-finals of the Champions League are intended to take place, without Liverpool of course. It means the Reds will have April 11, 12 (first leg) and 18 and 19 (second leg) now freed from their diaries.
As it stands, Liverpool will host Arsenal at Anfield on April 9 and afterwards have an eight-day break until they travel to Elland Road to face a resurgent Leeds United on April 17. It means Wednesday, April 12 is currently the only slot when the Reds would be able to welcome their London counterparts to Merseyside.
Typically, UEFA would not allow Premier League games to be contested on the same night as the Champions League. However, the Covid backlog and subsequently packed fixtures schedules in recent years has seen the governing body of the European game take a more lenient approach when reviewing requests by associations on a more frequent basis since April 2020.
Of course, it was only on Wednesday that Brighton and Crystal Palace and Southampton and Brentford competed in top-flight fixtures while Jurgen Klopp's side faced up to Real Madrid in the Spanish capital.
If that was to be the case, Fulham would almost certainly be without striker Aleksandar Mitrovic after the forward was sent off during Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Manchester United. The Serbia international, one of three Fulham associates to be shown a red card on the afternoon, was given his marching orders for pushing referee Chris Kavanagh.
Mitrovic will serve at least a three-match ban for breaking the Football Association's violent conduct rules but due to the seriousness of the incident, he could find himself on the end of an increased ban.
If April 12 was deemed too quick of a turnaround for the Premier League, there are potentially three breaks in the Premier League calendar in May that would allow the fixture to be rescheduled as May 2/3, May 9/10, or May 16/17 could all be used.
And with the Premier League season not ending until May 28, the midweek of May 24/25 could also be pencilled in as an alternative date.
