The Reds head across the Atlantic as part of their preparations for the next campaign, giving US-based fans a chance to see them in action

Liverpool will hope to kick on in 2018-19 after finishing fourth in the Premier League and concluding the season as Champions League runners-up.

The bulk of the Reds' pre-season preparations this summer will take place in the United States as they return to the International Champions Cup, having eschewed the 2017 edition, but they also have a game closer to home, in Ireland.

With the World Cup finishing in mid July it doesn't give clubs much time - compared to last year - to get things in order ahead of their club campaigns, but there is plenty to look forward to nonetheless.

Goal brings you your complete guide to the Reds' 2018-19 pre-season and Premier League fixtures, with dates, venues and all you need to know.

Liverpool's pre-season schedule involves some interesting encounters, with games against Bundesliga and Serie A opposition, as well as a Premier League double header in store.

There are a number of games scheduled for July against local opposition, with Chester, Tranmere Rovers, Bury and Blackburn Rovers all hosting the Reds in games that should see those stars not at the World Cup - such as Naby Keita and Fabinho - involved.

The first International Champions Cup game sees Jurgen Klopp go head to head with his former club Borussia Dortmund at the 75,000-capacity Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina on July 22. That game takes place at 4pm local time, which is not too late in the evening for Reds fans to follow in the UK.

However, the next game - against Premier League champions Manchester City - will have a slightly later kick-off of 8pm, which is 1am the following morning in the UK. The clash against Pep Guardiola's City will be played out at the MetLife Stadium, which is the home of New York's NFL teams the Jets and the Giants.

After their clash against familiar foes City, Liverpool have just two days to prepare for a derby game against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United. They'll travel over 600 miles west to Ann Arbor for that grudge match, which kicks off at 5pm local time (10pm in the UK).

After they wrap up their International Champions Cup commitments in the US, Liverpool return to Europe to finalise their preparations ahead of the new season with a game against Serie A outfit Napoli at Dublin's Aviva Stadium.
