While Alisson is also not expected to appear for the same reason for his engagement in Brazil

Fabinho also revealed that Liverpool plan to send him and Alisson directly to Spain to self-quarantine ahead of the Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.

The midfielder said: “I think this first game against Watford will be very difficult for us, I don’t think we will play. Neither Alisson nor myself.

“The game against Uruguay will take place on Friday night there (in the UK) and the game against Watford will take place at half past twelve.

“With all that that entails, the travel, I don’t know how much time we’ll have between one game and the next.

Liverpool tried to move the game to Saturday night but were rejected

“I don’t think we will play. We will also be in quarantine, but the club are still studying whether it is better to go directly to Spain to play against Atletico Madrid and quarantine there, without staying in a hotel in England.

Liverpool were sweating over the fitness of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Diogo Jota, who played no part in the international break for England and Portugal respectively.

But Jurgen Klopp has revealed that the pair, who were treating injuries, should be in good shape for the game against the Hornets.

However, the Vicarage Road shock is expected to come too soon for Thiago Alcantara, who continues to recover from a calf injury.
