Liverpool will play Chelsea in the first all-English Uefa Super Cup on 14 August in Istanbul.

The Reds qualified by beating Tottenham 2-0 in the Champions League final, with the Blues booking their place with a 4-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League on Wednesday.

Liverpool are the last English side to win the Super Cup, back in 2005.

Four of the past five have been all-Spanish affairs - with Atletico beating Real Madrid in Tallinn in 2018.

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool will be in seven competitions next season.

After winning the Champions League, they will be the European representatives in the Club World Cup in December, with the hosts to be decided at a Fifa meeting on Monday.

The Reds also play in the Community Shield - against Premier League champions Manchester City - at Wembley. A date has yet to be confirmed, but it is likely to be on 3 or 4 August.
