The 2019/20 season is Liverpool's 128th season in existence and 58th consecutive season at the highest level of English football. It is also the 28th consecutive season in the Premier League. The club participates in the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and EFL Cup. Because Liverpool finished second in the 2018-19 Premier League, they were allowed to play the Community Shield match and as the winner of the 2018-19 Champions League, the club was allowed to participate in the UEFA Super Cup and the World Club Championship. The season runs from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020.
In the 2019 FA Community Shield, Liverpool played against Premier League and FA Cup winners Manchester City FC. The match was lost 5-4 on penalties. In the UEFA Super Cup match, Liverpool defeated their rivals Chelsea FC 5-4 on penalties. It was the fourth title in the annual ranking, behind FC Barcelona and AC Milan who each have 5 titles.
Liverpool were eliminated from the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup by Aston Villa FC after drafting a very inexperienced side, assisted by O-23 manager Neil Critchley, while the first team competed in the World Club Championship in Qatar led by Jürgen Klopp. Having previously finished second three times, Liverpool won their first world title by beating CR Flamengo 1-0 in extra time. In doing so, they became the first English team to win the international treble with the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the Club World Cup.
