FIFA only recently announced 7 team Club World Cup will be held in Qatar in December (sorry, can't find exact dates). Liverpool start in semi finals but their club website has been suspiciously quiet on topic so participation maybe not 100% assured...

I thought I read Liverpool weren’t playing (because there is bigger tournament starting next year instead)?

That was what was thought until a week or two ago when FIFA announced this year's tournament (hosts). The bigger tournament is planned to be every 4 summers (not next summer - Euros).
EDIT Liverpool's website has a new article today about PL fixtures and other key dates which conspicuously fails to mention the World Club Championship.....

I see in Feb they are splitting one of the game weeks across two weekends, 5 in each, but TV will dictate who plays when nearer the time.
