Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp snapped at BT Sport regarding his Brazilian absentees ahead of Saturday’s trip to Watford. Klopp is without Alisson and Fabinho at Vicarage Road as the Premier League returns after the international break.

In his pre-match interview, Klopp cut a frustrated figure after being asked if the key Brazilian duo could’ve made his squad.

No, it was because we play at 12:30, and there is no chance we could play them, so that’s when we thought we then set them to [Madrid].

“It’s not that we thought ‘oh let’s see’. If we would’ve played tonight, we could’ve given it a try, but we play at 12:30, so there was no chance.

“Who was it [who had] the idea to bring us at 12:30? Was it Watford? If you [BT] wouldn’t have said it, we would’ve had to reply. Ah yeah, thank you for your help, really, thank you, thank you very much.”

Brazil played three games during the international break – wins against Venezuela and Uruguay and a draw against Colombia.

Fabinho featured in all three outings, whilst Alisson featured in two, with Ederson taking his place against Uruguay on Friday.

Considering the pair were in Brazil a day before Liverpool’s trip to Watford, it was almost impossible to consider them available.

Klopp will be frustrated, with the Reds looking to continue applying pressure on their fellow Premier League title challengers.
