Liverpool's pre-season plans for 2019/20 released

Liverpool will play a few pre-season fixtures in the United States before the start of next season as they did before the start of the 2018/19 season.

The Reds faced Borussia Dortmund and the two Manchester clubs in America last summer. It was an ultimately successful pre-season programme that Klopp seems keen to repeat.

The official Liverpool website says that before the start of the 19/20 season will be prefaced by friendlies in the United States.

It’s still quite premature to be thinking about pre-season given that the current season is still underway and has the potential to end wonderfully.

Depending on what Manchester City do in their final four games of the Premier League season, Liverpool could end the campaign as champions.

The Manchester Derby should hold significant bearing on the title race.

United will be desperate to bounce back after their dire performance at Goodison Park which saw them slip to a 4-0 defeat on Merseyside.

While the Red Devils might be conflicted about beating City as it would hand the title to Liverpool, they are in a position whereby they cannot afford to lose as it will jeopardise their chances of securing Champions League qualification.

Beyond the Premier League, Liverpool are still in the European Cup and could win their sixth title on the continent.

Barcelona stand in their way but given the results Klopp’s side has secured against the likes of Bayern Munich, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, he and his players will be confident of getting a result.

Before Klopp and co. can really think about their holidays let alone a pre-season tour of the States, they have a bit of work to do.
