Liverpool pre-season 2018/19 fixtures confirmed as will face Man United & Man City

Liverpool have confirmed they will face Manchester United, Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund in the United States this summer.

The ECHO revealed back in February that Liverpool would be playing three games across the Atlantic – with Manchester City and Manchester United among their opponents - as part of their preparations for the 2018/19 season.

And Jurgen Klopp will be reunited with former club Dortmund as well as the club's plans begin to take shape.

Before travelling across the Atlantic, the Reds will take on a host of local clubs. Klopp's men kick things off against Chester on July 7, then they travel to Prenton Park to face Tranmere on July 11, then Bury and Blackburn Rovers on July 14 and 19.

The Reds are then set to face the Bundesliga outfit in their opening game of the International Champions Cup in Charlotte, North Carolina, on July 22.

Liverpool's second game of the tour is set to be against Premier League champions Manchester City at New Jersey's 82,000-capacity MetLife Stadium on July 25 (the early hours of July 26 in the UK).
