The 2018-19 Premier League season kicks off on 10 August, but before then clubs will travel the globe for a host of high-profile and intriguing friendlies.

From the United States to Australia via mainland Europe and Asia, the 20 top-flight clubs will be involved in more than 100 fixtures this summer.

Among the things on the agenda are building fitness, helping new players and managers settle in, and a bit of brand promotion too.

Who plays where?

Defending Premier League champions Manchester City travel to the US for a tour that includes matches against Premier League rivals Chelsea and Liverpool.

Those three clubs will be joined by top-flight runners-up Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham in the International Champions Cup.

The annual competition also features the champions of Spain, Italy, France and Germany - Barcelona, Juventus, Paris St-Germain and Bayern Munich - and Benfica and Atletico Madrid.

Liverpool face both Manchester clubs in the space of three days, while Chelsea meet London rivals Arsenal in Dublin on 1 August.

FA Cup holders Chelsea will then face Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley on 5 August.

Two weeks prior to that Chelsea make a 17,982-mile round trip to Western Australia to face Perth Glory.

Southampton were the first Premier League team to start their pre-season, drawing 3-3 with Bundesliga side Schalke in Germany before flying to China for a tour that ended with a 3-2 win against Jiangsu Suning.

Burnley must factor in their presence in Europa League qualifying - they play Aberdeen later in July.
