Chelsea to face Liverpool in the International Champions Cup 2016


Premier League giants Liverpool and Chelsea are set to face each other in the International Champions Cup 2016 this summer.

The tournament is expected to begin towards the end of July after the Copa America and the European Championships.

Liverpool enjoyed a commercially successful pre-season trip to the Far East and Australia last summer and are set to return to the United States before the 2016/17 campaign.

It seems that Jurgen Klopp will need to prepare for a high-octane clash in his first ever pre-season with the Reds. However, it is unlikely that the German will be concerned about this. Instead, he might relish the prospect of facing a number of Europe’s best sides in the International Champions Cup.

According to Corriere Dello Sport, Inter Milan and AC Milan will be joined by the likes of Real Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea in the International Champions Cup this summer.

Liverpool will face Chelsea in Los Angeles, before heading to San Francisco for their next match.

The Reds took part in the ICC in 2014 and enjoyed a good tournament. Former manager Brendan Rodgers guided them to the finals of the ICC 2014, where they were beaten by Manchester United in the final in Miami.
