Liverpool trio sit out of international friendly

Liverpool trio sit out of international friendly

Liverpool will have welcomed the boost handed to them following the latest round of international fixtures.

According to the club’s official website, Brazil decided against using Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino and Fabinho in their final fixture of the break.

The trio, who had all featured from the start against the United States of America on Friday in the U.S., had remained on the bench for the whole game against El Salvador.

Jurgen Klopp will be pleased to be able to welcome them all back to Anfield in the coming days as they look to prepare for the return of the Premier League when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

Alisson and Firmino have been key players for Liverpool already this season, despite the former making a glaring error in their last match against Leicester City, whilst Fabinho is yet to feature for the Reds.

The Verdict:

Liverpool’s match against Tottenham will be their toughest test to date, as Klopp’s side look to extend their unbeaten run and remain top of the table.

And, with the Brazilian trio all being able to return without an added injury, the Anfield outfit’s chances of extending that run would look fairly promising.

However, Mauricio Pochettino’s team will pose a huge threat to Liverpool on Saturday and Klopp will know he will need his side to be at their best to ensure they do not suffer defeat.
