Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United are set to compete against each other as part of a pre-season tour in the United States.

Arsenal and United embarked on US tours last summer, while Liverpool makes its comeback after last visiting in 2019.

The Gunners will kick off against United at Los Angeles’ So-Fi Stadium on July 27.

Following that, Liverpool will take on Arsenal in Philadelphia on July 31 before meeting Manchester United in South Carolina on August 3.

“Our tour last year was a real success and it’s always an amazing experience to play in front of our passionate supporters in the US,” Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said.

“We’re looking forward to returning and seeing everyone again.”

Liverpool are likely to head to the US with a new manager as Jurgen Klopp departs the club at the end of this season.

“We know millions of super passionate American fans love this club and what we stand for,” said Liverpool’s commercial director Ben Latty.

“A fact underlined when our televised game with Arsenal in December became the most-watched Premier League game in US history.”

Manchester United football director John Murtough added: “The quality of opponents lined up to play is at the highest level, giving the players an opportunity to gain valuable playing time, and for fans to see some of the most famous teams in world football playing live.”
