Premier League clubs including Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United will be without a couple of star players this weekend after the war between English clubs and the Brazilian Football Association, escalated.

FIFA has notified clubs that the questionable ‘five-day rule’ will be inflicted by the Brazilian FA, who are angry that players were rescinded from the latest round of World Cup qualifiers.

The rule would deter eight players from five clubs from starring in this round of domestic fixtures, though it has occurred that Everton forward Richarlison will be authorized to play this weekend, due to the Toffees’ robust relationship with the Brazilian federation.

Richarlison was permitted to play for Brazil in the Olympic Games in Beijing earlier this summer.

Liverpool triad Alisson Becker, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino are all affected, and will be sanctioned out of the Reds’ trip to Leeds on Sunday. Leeds wide forward Raphinha will also miss the fixture at Elland Road.

Manchester City duo Ederson and Gabriel Jesus will miss the outing to Leicester, while Manchester United midfielder Fred is out of his side’s home game with Newcastle all on Saturday. Also Fred to sit out their opening Champions League group clash away to Young Boys next Tuesday.

Chelsea are in the same line, missing veteran defender Thiago Silva for both games against Aston Villa and Zenit St Petersburg.

Other affected clubs such as Tottenham will miss Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso, and Aston Villa will be without Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendia, all of whom were authorized to join up with the Argentina squad for this round of international games.

Furthermore the Brazilian FA, Chile, Mexico and Paraguay have also inquired FIFA to apply the five-day rule, a motion which will impact Wolves’ Raul Jimenez, Watford’s Francisco Sierralta, Newcastle forward Miguel Almiron and the Blackburn striker Ben Brereton Diaz.
