  • HOME vs Genk (Champions League)
  • HOME vs Man City (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Crystal Palace (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Napoli (Champions League)
  • HOME vs Brighton (Premier League)

A relatively kind month awaits Liverpool, including two home games in the Champions League sandwiched between winnable – albeit tricky – away days at Aston Villa and Crystal Palace.

Of course, there’s also the small matter of the Anfield clash with title-rivals Man City, which is sure to be a spicy one.

  • AWAY vs Liverpool (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Chelsea (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Shakhtar Donetsk (Champions League)
  • AWAY vs Newcastle (Premier League)

The mid-November trip to Anfield will be weighing heavily on Pep’s mind as he prepares his side for the month ahead, and we’re sure he’ll be irked by the trip to Lombardy just four days before.

With City’s defensive woes this season, the month will certainly be a testing one for the title-holders.

  • AWAY vs Watford (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Ajax (Champions League)
  • HOME vs Crystal Palace (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Man City (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Valencia (Champions League)
  • HOME vs West Ham (Premier League)

Frank Lampard’s high-flying Chelsea seem to be getting better and better with every passing month of the season.

The Blues have looked very handy since their 2-1 defeat to Liverpool back in September, with their win over Champions League semi-finalists Ajax particularly eye-catching.

They play the Dutch giants again in the early weeks of November, while we’re Lamps will be looking forward to facing off against Guardiola in the trip to Man City.

  • HOME vs Wolves (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Guimaraes (Europa League)
  • AWAY vs Leicester (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Southampton (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Eintracht Frankfurt (Europa League)

What do we make of Arsenal at the moment?

Unai Emery’s place at the team is seemingly under-threat, while none of their players have particularly impressed on Dream Team.

But November could be a good month for the Gunners – although the trip to Leicester could certainly prove problematic.

Man United

  • AWAY vs Bournemouth (Premier League)

  • HOME vs Brighton (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Sheffield United (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Astana (Europa League)

The pressure’s still on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite United’s recent upturn in form, although the likeable Norwegian will no doubt be relieved to have Anthony Martial back from injury.

You can expect the Frenchman to be a regular feature in their league games, while Mason Greenwood and the other youngsters will presumably still be bedded in during the Europa League matches.

The trip to Sheffield United will be particularly fascinating to watch, considering the promoted side’s defensive brilliance so far this season.

Spurs

  • AWAY vs Everton (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Red Star (Champions League)
  • HOME vs Sheffield United (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs West Ham (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Olympiacos (Champions League)
  • HOME vs Bournemouth (Premier League)

Spurs’ terrible start to the season – which includes that 7-2 defeat to Bayern at the very beginning of October – means Mauricio Pochettino’s job could be on the line if his side don’t improve in November.

Trips to Everton and then Red Star will certainly test the Argentinian manager’s resolve, as will the away day at West Ham.
