Liverpool announce two friendlies during Dubai camp

Liverpool are to play two friendly matches while in Dubai next month for their warm-weather training camp.

The members of Jürgen Klopp’s first-team squad who are not at the World Cup will spend 12 days in the United Arab Emirates, with their domestic schedule now paused until the Carabao Cup tie at Manchester City on December 22.

Reds players involved in the World Cup will join the group in Dubai once their nation’s participation in the competition has concluded.

As well as warm-weather training, Liverpool will also play against Olympique Lyonnais and AC Milan in a friendly tournament called the Dubai Super Cup.

Fellow Premier League side Arsenal will also compete in the tournament but not play against the Reds.
