15 goals, 5 assists & 2,000+ minutes – Liverpool FC in November international break

Jurgen Klopp‘s internationals were busy during the November international break, with 18 players getting minutes and a third of them on the scoresheet.

The final international break of 2023 is behind us, and we can now start to focus back on the busy schedule that Liverpool have ahead of them.

Thankfully, Klopp’s internationals will all return to Merseyside fit and healthy ahead of the clash with Man City on Saturday, though his squad were asked to play plenty of minutes.

With a quick turnaround for a host of players it is not ideal, but there were confidence boosts aplenty as six different players got on the scoresheet, which included one four-goal haul.

Here is a quick look at how the Reds’ internationals got on throughout the November break.
