The Reds are back in action this weekend and training has already kicked back off at Kirkby, with Klopp overseeing a session on Thursday morning.
This came on the back of the final games of the September international break, with Kostas Tsimikas and Conor Bradley the only Liverpool players to feature on Wednesday as Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold were unused substitutes.
Logistically, it has been a tough period for the club, with Naby Keita forced to evacuate from Guinea following an attempted coup, Mohamed Salah only travelling for one of his country’s two games and Alisson and Fabinho blocked from Brazil duty.
The decision to reject call-ups for the Brazilian duo, along with Salah for Egypt’s World Cup qualifier at home to Angola, was informed by the UK’s quarantine rules, and could still see Klopp’s restriction limited on Sunday.
Overall, though, this break can be considered a welcome reprieve for 10 first-team players, while three others have been able to continue their rehabilitation from injury.
It stands to reason that those who enjoyed time off over the break, such as Matip, Thiago and perhaps even Oxlade-Chamberlain, could be turned to as staples of the side upon the restart.
It should be noted, too, that neither Curtis Jones nor Caoimhin Kelleher played a minute for their national teams despite being called up, while Henderson, Alexander-Arnold, Salah and Keita only clocked the equivalent of one full game.
Fatigue is an issue Liverpool will be desperate to avoid as the busy stages of the season begin, and a slow international break should certainly be a benefit.
