Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits he's not thrilled about taking his squad to China.
"It's not ideal but that's the game we're in now," the Tottenham manager said. "Manchester United [have been] in the far east, Chelsea in America. It's a world game, they love their football in China and Hong Kong."
And Redknapp is not overawed by facing Liverpool in the opening fixture of the new season, which begins on 15 August.
"Not worried, it's a fantastic game - they have a real chance of winning the title. They lost two games all season, one to us when they battered us really. We look forward to it."
