Five Premier League stars have been called into Tite’s Brazil squad for October friendlies against Nigeria and Senegal.

Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino and Fabinho are called, but goalkeeper Alisson is still injured, which means Manchester City’s Ederson will be first choice.

Gabriel Jesus and Richarlison complete the Premier League contingent. Flamengo striker Gabigol has been called into the squad for the first time in three years.

Gabigol, on loan at Flamengo from Inter Milan, has 17 goals for the Rio club this season as Fla sit on top of the Brasileirão.

Gabriel Jesus is recalled after missing the September friendlies through suspension as a punishment for his conduct after being sent off in the Copa America final in June.

Full squad; Ederson, Weverton, Santos; Dani Alves, Danilo, Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Rodrigo Caio, Eder Militão, Alex Sandro, Renan Lodi; Casemiro, Arthur, Fabinho, Matheus Henrique, P.Coutinho, Lucas Paquetá; Gabigol, Richarlison, Neymar, Roberto Firmino, Gabriel Jesus, Everton Cebolinha.
