Liverpool’s Brazilians will be available for selection against Leeds United. FIFA waived the potential ban for their trio of Allison, Fabinho and Firmino.

The Reds were tense that Fabinho, Alisson and Roberto Firmino would be ineligible to face Leeds. The Brazilian FA ruled that Liverpool breached FIFA protocols for not releasing them for international duty earlier this week.

This also implies that Leeds will be able to select forward Raphinha. Alongside, Ederson and Gabriel Jesus will be available for Manchester City, Thiago Silva for Chelsea, Fred for Manchester United, Miguel Almiron (Paraguay) for Newcastle, Raúl Jimenez (Mexico) for Wolves and Francisco Sierralta (Chile) for Watford.

FIFA and other bodies lift ban

Brazil FA had asked FIFA to impose the five-day ruling on the players after Liverpool disallowed them for international duty.

This came after Premier League clubs unanimously agreed against releasing players for this round of international fixtures. They did not want players featuring in matches taking place in countries on the UK Government’s red list.

It would have meant that the players would have to quarantine upon returning to the UK. This would ultimately imply that they would have been unable to play for their clubs.

FIFA Ban, Six Sports
Talks involving FIFA, the FA, the Premier League and the associations of Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Paraguay have led to the ban being waived

However, there were extensive talks with FIFA, the FA and the Premier League. Finally, the associations of Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Paraguay concurred to waive the five-day restriction.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp previously made clear his frustration and unhappiness with the situation during his Friday press conference.

I can say what I know: I don’t know in the moment,” said Klopp. “We will see, there are meetings going on.”

Paul Joyce and other reliable sources have now confirmed that Premier League clubs will be able to field the ineligible players this week.

Joyce : “Premier League players cleared to play this weekend by Fifa after Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Paraguay agree to waive automatic 5-day restriction.”
