Klopp’s worried about the unavailability of Trent Alexander-Arnold

Jurgen Klopp was worried about the unavailability of Trent Alexander-Arnold. Also they are not permitted to have five substitutions in the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp was too much disenchanted for Liverpool’s draw at Manchester City and losing Trent Alexander-Arnold due to his calf injury.

 Within November international break, he was supposed to be part of Gareth Southgate's England side for competitions against the Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Iceland.

"It's not an advantage [to be able to use five substitutes], it's a necessity. It happens in other countries, it was sold completely wrong and now you have this situation.

"Trent will be out for England, will not be the last or only one Gareth will have to deal with either."

"Look, an international England player – Trent Alexander-Arnold – is injured. All around the world, five substitutions. Here, we believe we are more special and have only three.

Klopp supported Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's condemnation of plans. The Manchester United manager was being forced to feature in the early kick-off on Saturday during 48 hours after returning from a Champions League fixture in Istanbul.

"We have to find solutions, it’s so tough and we need to play football but Wednesday night and 12:30pm (Saturday) must not be allowed," Klopp said.

"If the Tuesday teams are in contention for Saturday that's okay, but the Wednesday [teams] should not be in contention for those games.
