Liverpool’s great start to the season will now be grinded to a halt as the international break commences.
The Reds managed to ease the tension of the draw against Luton Town with a good 3-0 win against Brentford to close this stage of the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp’s men will return from international duty with a crunch match against league leaders Manchester City at the Etihad.
Pep Guardiola could have a number of key players unavailable for the top of the table bout – more on that here.
21 Liverpool players are currently with their national team according to liverpoolfc.com.
Klopp will hope that none of his players return to LFC injured, as was the case with Andy Robertson and Ben Doak last month.
Alisson Becker: The Liverpool ‘keeper will likely start against Colombia (November 16) and Argentina (November 21) in World Cup qualifiers with compatriot Ederson pulling out of the squad.
He has played second fiddle to the Manchester City shot stopper in recent months but will now get a chance to feature for his nation.
Luis Diaz: The left-winger is included in the Colombian squad for their November 16 home qualifier against Alisson Becker’s Brazil in Barranquilla, before going on to Asuncion, Paraguay, on November 21.
Alexis Mac Allister: The World Cup winner will play against Uruguay in Buenos Aires before taking on Alisson at the Maracanã on November 12. Liverpool’s No.10 will see familiar faces in both of games.
Darwin Nunez: The chaotic 24-year-old will link up with compatriot and former Liverpool man Luis Suarez this international break.
Suarez recently revealed how he helped Nunez during some bad times last season. He will take on Mac Allister’s Argentina on November 16 before facing Bolivia on November 21.
