Jurgen Klopp's side will compete for seven trophies in total, including the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Super Cup, Club World Cup and the Community Shield.

The Reds will begin their campaign with a pre-season tour to the US, where they will play three matches between July 20th and 25th.

It is understood that five players are set to play international tournaments this summer.

Liverpool will then play in the Community Shield against Premier League champions Manchester City at the start of August before kicking off their league campaign on August 10th.

Four days later, Jurgen Klopp's side will travel to Istanbul to play Chelsea in the European Super Cup.

The likes of Virgil van Dijk and Roberto Firmino won't have time to rest as they aim to defend their Champions League crown on September 17th, not to mention the League Cup kicking off in the same month.

Following a build up of fixtures at the start of the season, The Reds will then make the 8,300-mile round trip to Qatar in December to play in the Club World Cup.

The FA Cup will then come into play at the start of January, while the Premier League, Champions League and League Cup are in full swing.

It's certainly not an easy fixture list, as the likes of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah face the very real prospect of playing 75 games throughout the 2019/20 campaign. Crazy.

Thoughts on the above? Can Liverpool defend their Champions League crown while competing for the Premier League with such a busy schedule?
