Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp snapped at BT Sport as the Reds’ 12:30 kick-off time meant his Brazilian pair had “no chance” of playing against Watford on Saturday.

Alisson and Fabinho are missing for the clash at Vicarage Road after returning late from international duty this week.

Brazil played against Uruguay in the early hours of Friday morning, meaning the Reds pair were major doubts for Saturday’s match.

Nothing can prepare you for Arteta’s shock Vieira ‘admission’

In his pre-match interview, Klopp blew his top after being asked if the Brazilian players could have 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.”

Alisson featured in two of Brazil’s three matches during the international break, meanwhile, Fabinho played every game.

Earlier this week Klopp claimed Gareth Southgate has a “special thing” for John Stones after picking him for England over Reds defender Joe Gomez.

Southgate has previously made a big deal out of picking players in form and playing for their clubs but it seems Stones was an exception to the rule.

The Manchester City defender hasn’t made an appearance under Pep Guardiola this campaign with the Spaniard preferring Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte as his two central defenders.

Gomez has struggled to get into the Liverpool first team this season but he didn’t receive a call-up despite being in previous squads.

A frustrated Klopp said: “Sometimes Gareth reacts if you are not playing for your club you cant play for the national team. Obviously there is a special thing for Mr Stones.”
