The 2017-18 Reserves season is Neil Critchley's first full season in charge of the reserves. The young Reds competed in the Premier League 2, Premier League Cup, the Premier League International Cup, as well as the final of the Lancashire Senior Cup.

The Reds won the latter accolade early in the season, beating Fleetwood Town in a penalty shoutout. They also got to the Knockout stage of both cup competitions, but were beaten in the first knockout stage by both Middlesbrough and Porto.

It was in the League where Liverpool impressed most however, with the Reds winning 10 of their opening 12 fixtures. However, a second half of the season slump, including a run of one victory in eight resulted in the side finishing just second in the Premier League 2.
