Liverpool could be given a triple boost this international break as CONMEBOL weigh up the possibility of postponing their March international fixtures.

The governing body of South American football are due to meet with FIFA president Gianni Infantino to discuss the next steps over games to be played towards the end of the month.

Postponement is on the table, meaning Liverpool could be spared from having to release Alisson Becker, Roberto Firmino and Fabinho for Brazil duty.

La Selecao are due to meet Colombia in a World Cup qualifier in Bogota on March 26 before a clash with rivals Argentina five days later at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of Thursday's visit from Chelsea, Klopp admitted the thought of dispatching his players across the globe during a worldwide pandemic was something he was not overly happy to do.

It is believed that CONMEBOL are not considering playing the fixtures in a COVID-secure bubble and contesting the key games without the big names of European football is also not seen as a credible solution.

That leaves a postponement as an option for the South American authorities when they meet with their FIFA counter-parts on Thursday.

If that was to be the outcome, it would leave Fabinho, Firmino and Alisson on Merseyside during the next round of fixtures.

Such a scenario would be a welcome boost for Klopp, who openly discussed the need for clubs to to be viewed as "first priority" during this period.

The Liverpool boss also admitted that the spread of COVID-19 is a concern for any of his players jetting across continents during the pandemic.

“First and foremost we are concerned, about all the things from a virus point of view," Klopp said.

"In the last few months when someone had to leave the bubble we were not without cases but it never spread.

"But there were two periods: the last international break when more cases than before came up and the Christmas period, in which we were all involved and it was a challenge for all society.

"England is going in the right direction and it looks promising but yes, we are concerned about these kind of things.

"What is a Red List country? England is doing really well at the moment and I think we are on the Red List for some other countries, it is not easy for us to travel from England.

"Having more information would be great. I think FIFA was kind of clear that we don't have to let the players go this time, and I think all the clubs agree that with the same problems we cannot just let the boys go and then sort the situation when they come back by placing our players in a 10-day quarantine in a hotel, it is just not possible.

"I understand the need of the different FAs but this is a time where we cannot make everyone happy and we have to admit the players are paid by the clubs so it means we have to be first priority.

"That means with all understanding for the different needs and competitions coming in the summer but you cannot make everyone happy at the same time in this period in our lives.

"We are not 100 per cent sure as it is not clear in some countries, who may decide to change the venues they play and go to non-Red Zone countries.

"The whole situation is similar to the Champions League in terms of where we play and you have to wait until the last second pretty much because people need time to make decisions and we don't think too much about it as we cannot be influential in it.

"We just deal with what other people decided so we got kind of used to it but I think everyone agrees we cannot let the players go and play for their country and come back and quarantine for 10 days in a hotel, that is not how we can do it.”
