Liverpool without South Americans as Watford clash comes too soon
Liverpool are to be without their Brazilians in Watford clash.
The Reds can count themselves unlucky this weekend as the scheduling hasn’t done them any favours.
Travelling to Vicarage Road this weekend, Liverpool won’t have any of their South American internationals.
That means that Alisson Becker and Fabinho will all be missing.
This comes as a result of the fact that Liverpool’s trip to Watford comes on Saturday at 12:30.
In contrast, Tottenham’s South American quartet are all available this weekend.
That’s only because the Premier League scheduling sees them play at 4:30 on Sunday.
This news has come from The Telegraph and it will leave a lot of Liverpool fans absolutely livid.
With or without the Brazilians, Liverpool should have enough to overcome Watford.
Liverpool to be without Brazilians for Watford clash
The Reds have got a lot of talent in their squad and are so far unbeaten in the Premier League.
This game will be made harder without arguably the best goalkeeper and best holding midfielder in the league.
That won’t be enough of an excuse for the Reds should they lose, though.
Even if his Brazilian’s were to be back in time, Klopp surely wouldn’t have been prepared to risk his players twice in two days.
Things aren’t all doom and gloom for the Reds.
The new Covid restrictions mean that the Brazilians can play for Liverpool in the Champions League next week.
In the previous international break South American players had to self-isolate for ten days upon returning.
Now, though, it’s just one game that the supporters will have to go without their Brazilian internationals.
Should Liverpool beat Watford and then Atletico Madrid then the supporters will likely forget all about this.
Until that happens, though, the frustrations are valid.
