After their Champions League triumph last season, Liverpool will compete in the Fifa Club World Cup at the end of the calendar year.

Jurgen Klopps outfit will head to Qatar in search of further silverware, taking on the best teams from other continents around the globe.

Liverpool will enter into the competition at the semi-finals stage, but there are two previous rounds that will feed into their tie – meaning they could play one of three teams.

Home hopefuls Al Sadd SC will take on New Caledonian outfit Hienghene Sport in round one, with Mexicos CF Monterrey awaiting the winner at the next stage.

Monterrey will be the favourites to join Liverpool in the semi-finals.
