How to watch Liverpool players on international duty this October

Unlike the September international break, this club football hiatus comes at a good time for Liverpool.

Despite playing well away from home against both Tottenham and Brighton, and being on the wrong end of some horrifying officiating, ultimately the Reds picked up just one point from a possible six, after picking up 16 points from 18.

While this dip in form has allowed a three-point gap to form between the Reds and both North London clubs at the top of the table, Jurgen Klopp's side have still been playing well and there is no reason to believe Liverpool can't still compete in a title race this season.

Nevertheless, on the back of poor results, an international break isn't the worst thing in the world for the Reds before they gear up for the Merseyside Derby at Anfield on Saturday, 21 October.
