Only three games have taken place but it’s that time of the year already, the first international break of the season and Liverpool have 32 players involved.
And there is doubt over the involvement of four more due to the UK government’s COVID restrictions, meaning the Brazilian trio and Mohamed Salah are set to miss out.
The Reds blocked Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino from playing a part in a triple-header of World Cup qualifiers due to the need to travel to a red-list country that would enforce a 10-day quarantine.
They are, therefore, to remain on Merseyside while Salah could feature in one of Egypt’s 2022 qualifiers in Gabon, with no threat of quarantine on his return as opposed to his native country.
But there are no doubts over the involvement of other members of Klopp’s contingent, with a total of 13 first team members called up and a further 18 players from the Academy set-up and loan contingent.
The No. 4 will return to captain his country against Norway (Sept 1), Montenegro (Sept 4) and Turkey (Sept 7).
Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold will be in the mix for England as they meet Hungary (Sept 2), Andorra (Sept 5) and Poland (Sept 8), aiming to extend their lead atop of their World Cup qualifying group.
A similar triple-header also awaits Andy Robertson when Scotland meet Denmark (Sept 1), Moldova (Sept 4) and Austria (Sept 7), an intense run on return from injury.
