Jurgen Klopp admits he will risk pre-season chaos for Liverpool to play European football

Finishing fifth will guarantee a place in the Europa League group stages, but sixth or seventh could still earn them entry at the third qualifying stage.

If it does, then the Reds will face a first leg on July 28, just 24 hours after they face Chelsea in Pasadena, and two days before the play AC Milan in Santa Clara.

Klopp is likely to split his squad if that happens, with half remaining in the States and the rest flying home to prepare for Europe.
