The Reds saw Trent Alexander-Arnold limp off in their 1-1 draw with Manchester City on Sunday, and he joins a growing injury list across the league due to the demanding schedule.

United lost Luke Shaw to a hamstring injury in their 3-1 win over Everton on Saturday, and in a post-match rant he said that the clubs are being "set up to fail."

When asked about the matter, the Independent quoted Klopp as saying: "Ole was right. City and us played on Tuesday, so there are always two teams who play Tuesday and two teams who play Wednesday.

"If the Tuesday teams are in contention now for the Saturday early kick-off, that's OK. It's not nice but it's OK.

"But the Wednesday teams should not even be in consideration for that game, just not.

"Sky, BT, Premier League, BBC, whoever – they have to talk. We cannot deal with that situation like we always did before. It's very important the FA has to be involved.

"Tonight, we lost Trent Alexander-Arnold, and I'm pretty sure Gareth Southgate is not fine [with that]. If we continue like this and hopefully we can play a Euros in the summer, if they happen, let's see who will be part of that, which players."
