Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side will face former Premier League champions Leicester City, as well as West Brom and Crystal Palace at this year’s Premier League Asia trophy, as per a report in the Telegraph.
The prestigious Hong Kong tournament held in July will feature in Liverpool’s pre-season schedule as they look to prepare for the 2017/18 season.
Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace replace Shanghai SIPG who have pulled out of the tournament. This is the first time that the tournament will not feature a local representative.
Tottenham, Manchester United and Manchester City have too confirmed their pre-season plans as they all head to the United States, leaving Liverpool to take the role as the tournament’s big attraction.
This will be Liverpool’s second participation in the tournament, having finished as runners-up in 2007.
