Jurgen Klopp's star duo of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino have been key to Liverpool's resurgence to the top of the table, while Chelsea's Willian has emerged as one of the standout players at Stamford Bridge in the last two seasons and Fernandinho has been a key player in Pep Guardiola's midfield at City.

All these players are included in Brazil’s squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Argentina and Peru. 

The clash between Peru and Brazil will end in the early hours of Wednesday and this means they will not be in England before Friday. Liverpool and Manchester City are in action on Saturday as they take on Southampton and Crystal Palace respectively, while Chelsea will travel to the Riverside Stadium to face Middlesbrough on Sunday.

Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City have decided to contribute £30,000 each in order to hire a Gulfstream Jet to bring the Brazilian players to England right after the match. Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain will also be looking for a similar arrangement to bring Brazilian defender Thiago Silva to the French capital following his national side's tie.

Tite's side have already defeated Argentina in the first match 3-0 at home and now they travel to Estadio Nacional de Lima for the next fixture on 15 November.

All the clubs will be hoping that their players return without much injury concerns as we have already seen several players including the likes of Diego Costa, Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane and Hector Bellerin return to their clubs from international duty carrying an injury.
