Liverpool handed a major blow after five players withdraw from international duty

Liverpool are sweating over the fitness of five players after they were forced to withdraw from their respective national teams.

The Reds are entering a busy period which will see them compete in the Premier League, Champions League, Carabao Cup, and Club World Cup in December.

Jurgen Klopp faces tricky fixtures after the international break, meeting Crystal Palace on Saturday before they host Napoli in a crucial Champions League fixture.

Salah was forced to withdraw from Egypt's games against Kenya and Comoros, after aggravating his ankle injury that he picked up in the 2-1 win over Leicester City. 

Virgil van Dijk withdrew from the Netherlands squad ahead of their game against Estonia on Tuesday, however, with the Dutch FA only saying it was due to "personal circumstances."

Joe Gomez pulled out of the England squad after sustaining a knock to the knee in training, but it looks like he should be ok to face Palace.

Jordan Henderson returned to Melwood before the game against Kosovo, but the infection is unlikely to keep him out for much longer, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him back in the Liverpool line-up on Saturday.

Robertson's case is a curious one, with the left-back initially appearing in perfect health for Scotland's two remaining qualifiers before he suddenly withdrew, citing an ankle injury as the reason.
