The first international break is fast approaching and for a lot of clubs in both the Premier League and EFL, that means waving goodbye to their international stars and keeping an eye out for how they get on for their countries.

One of those is the North Macedonian left-sided midfielder/defender Ezgjan Alioski. The left-wing-back has yet again been called up to feature for his country, and the Whites are far from surprised to hear this.
Marcelo Bielsa has utilised the international as a left-wing-back, and he scored his first goal of the season against Stoke in a 3-0 win last weekend, the fans, though will be desperate for their man to remain fit over the international break.
You can see what they’ve had to say about Alioski here:

The Whites are loving Alioski’s form at the moment, and losing him to injury is the last thing they want or need.
