Given the great stock it puts in being the best in the world, the Premier League doesn't always seek to protect its own brand.

Witness the situation facing Liverpool and a number of top-flight clubs this weekend after the international calendar prompted another spate of issues.

The onus was on the Premier League to enforce a change.

In December 2019, Liverpool were forced to field an Academy side in their League Cup quarter-final at Aston Villa given the clash with the FIFA Club World Cup in Qatar.

Were Premier League teams set to be without three or four regular starters this weekend due to the international break, it could have strengthened their case for a postponement as in Spain.

After all, missing a couple of players after national team duties is nothing new to Klopp or his top-flight counterparts.

As well as preventing them fielding a much-weakened team in La Liga, it has also given Atletico extra time to prepare for the Champions League visit of Liverpool on Tuesday.
