Premier League champions Manchester City will face a rematch with their Uefa Champions League conquerors Liverpool in the United States this summer.

Liverpool will also take on their arch-rivals Manchester United during the International Champions Cup tournament in July, an event that also features Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

The six Premier League sides will be joined by the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain in the competition.

Matches will be played at various venues in the US, Europe and Singapore.

Each of the Premier League sides will play three fixtures, which will form part of their pre-season preparations.

City will meet Borussia Dortmund in Chicago on July 20 before facing Liverpool, who ended their Champions League challenge earlier this month, five days later in New Jersey. They also play Bayern in Miami on July 28.
