Liverpool will play a pre-season friendly at Anfield on the eve of the 2019-20 season.

The ECHO understands that the Reds are in talks with a number of potential opponents for the midweek game in early August.

Jürgen Klopp's side rounded off their preparations for the current campaign in similar fashion last summer when they hosted Torino.

Liverpool also remain in discussions to play a lucrative friendly at Tottenham's new stadium in late July.

Wembley and Dublin's Aviva Stadium have been used previously but this time around they aren't available. With Liverpool also unable to use Cardiff's Millennium Stadium, Tottenham’s new home emerged as an option with Napoli likely to provide the opposition.

If a deal is done then Klopp believes it would help his players familiarise themselves with the new stadium ahead of the Premier League season.

Liverpool's pre-season schedule will retain the same format which has proved successful during Klopp's reign.

They will have a number of local away friendlies in the North West in early July before flying to America for an eight-day tour.

The Reds will take on Borussia Dortmund in Indiana (July 19), Sevilla in Boston (July 21) and Sporting Lisbon in New York (July 24).

On their return from the States, Klopp will take his players to a week-long training camp in Europe.

Then they will have the game in London and one at Anfield as well as potentially being involved in the Community Shield if they are crowned Premier League champions.
