Jurgen Klopp has seen 14 senior Liverpool players called up for international duty for World Cup qualifiers and friendlies in November.
The third international break of the season, this represents little more than an unwanted distraction for many supporters.
But with a host of key players called up for duty, there is an opportunity to see Klopp’s stars in action in a different setting.
This includes, Nathaniel Clyne, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge, who were all called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad to take on Scotland (November 11) and Spain (November 15) at Wembley Stadium.
Brazil take on Argentina (November 10) and Peru (November 16) as they continue their push for the World Cup in Russia in 2018, with Firmino and Coutinho increasingly key.
Simon Mignolet and Divock Origi will be hoping to feature as Belgium take on the Netherlands (November 9) and Estonia (November 13), with Georginio Wijnaldum turning out for the former against Belgium and Luxembourg (November 13).
Ragnar Klavan will captain Estonia against Roberto Martinez’s Red Devils, in their only fixture of the break.
One of Liverpool’s key forwards, Sadio Mane, is set to star for Senegal against South Africa (November 12), while two of Klopp’s loanees have also been called up for their national teams.
Marko Grujic (Serbia U21s), Ryan Fulton (Scotland U21s), Corey Whelan (Republic of Ireland U21s) Ovie Ejaria (England U20s), Trent Alexander-Arnold (England U19s), Ben Woodburn (Wales U19s) and Kamil Grabara (Poland U18s) are among the Liverpool players set for youth international action this month.
