Liverpool face a difficult start to the 2016/17 Premier League season.

With the Premier League fixtures coming out earlier this week, we predict the results of Liverpool's first six matches for the 2016/17 campaign. New signings will of course be made, and whilst it's early into the transfer window, here's an early look at how Liverpool's start to the campaign could go.

Arsenal (Away) - Draw

The Reds travelled to face Arsenal away early in the last campaign, and will be looking to avoid defeat just like they did last season. It was 0-0 last time, and a similar score wouldn't be a surprise. Both teams have top four aspirations and will be looking to start well, but they should enter the campaign as two well-matched teams.

Burnley (Home) - Win

Liverpool then host newly-promoted Burnley at Anfield in a game Jurgen Klopp will be looking to win. The Clarets will be hard to break down under Sean Dyche, but at home, Liverpool should have the quality and the backing to get a win here.

Tottenham (Away) - Lose

A trip to White Hart Lane is always a difficult one, and Tottenham were so impressive at home last term. Both teams pressed high and cancelled each other out in a 0-0 draw last season, but this could be a difficult trip for Klopp and his Reds.

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri

Leicester (Home) - Win

After their fairytale Premier League win, many expect Leicester to lose players and ultimately fail to replicate their success. An early trip to Anfield is a tough task, and the Reds were one of the few teams to beat Leicester last season, beating them 1-0 on Merseyside. It should be another close encounter, but despite Leicester's champion status, this is a winnable game for Liverpool.

Chelsea (Away) - Draw

Chelsea v Liverpool is always a game to look forward to, and after a disastrous campaign last term, the Blues should be much harder to beat under new manager Antonio Conte. Liverpool will surely go and try to attack, but if Chelsea can replicate the Juventus team which was so dominant under Conte, they will pose a tough challenge for Liverpool.

Hull manager Steve Bruce

Hull City (Home) - Win

Another newly-promoted side, another game Liverpool will be looking to win at home. The Tigers went up through the play-offs and will be looking to pick up early points, but a trip to Anfield doesn't look like the place for Steve Bruce to get their season off to a flier.

Points: 11 - Three home wins from three and just one defeat from three away trips would represent a strong start to Klopp's first full season as Reds boss.

How many points will Liverpool get in their first six Premier League matches?
