Liverpool have seen their request to delay their upcoming meeting with Watford rejected, meaning Jurgen Klopp could be without his Brazilians for the game.

Alisson Becker, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino are all expected to feature in Brazil’s rescheduled World Cup qualifier against Uruguay on 15 October, just 24 hours before the Reds are due to take on Watford.

As revealed by The Telegraph, Liverpool asked the Premier League to postpone the fixture, but after opposition to the proposal from the Hornets, they have been knocked back.

Watford argued that rearranging the game at such short notice would be unfair to fans who have already made travel plans, whereas Liverpool insisted that they, alongside the other clubs with Brazilian players, would be at an unfair disadvantage.

It means that, unless Brazil agree to release the players early, Liverpool would be without Alisson, Fabinho and Firmino for the Watford game.
