After a last-gasp win against Everton in the Premier League on Sunday, Liverpool will hope to keep the heat on Manchester City when they take on Burley on Wednesday.
Jürgen Klopp’s side had good openings but left it late against Everton as a Jordan Pickford error allowed Divock Origi to tap in from close range.
Liverpool haven’t been at their offensive best but their defence has stepped up so far this season.
Against a struggling Burnley side, the Reds will have to be more fluent in attack as the Clarets are likely to sit back and play for a point.
Liverpool Team News
Liverpool have a few injury worries and Klopp may have to rotate as Sadio Mane and Andy Robertson are doubtful.
The Reds do have a few games to play in the coming 10 days or so, including a crunch Champions League clash, and the manager could make a few rotations to keep the players fresh.
Predicted Liverpool Lineup
Dejan Lovren is expected to return for the clash and he could replace Joe Gomez at the heart of the defence. Virgil van Dijk should keep his place alongside Lovren at the back.
Alberto Moreno could get a rare start considering Robertson is a doubt while Trent Alexander-Arnold should start as the right-back.
Alisson put in a stellar display against Everton and made a few crucial saves. He’ll keep his place in goal.
Jordan Henderson is back from suspension and is in line to start against the Clarets. James Milner and Naby Keita could start alongside him in a completely changed midfield to the one that started against Everton.
Keita will play a key role for the Reds as the former Leipzig man can open up a defence and his creativity will be needed against Sean Dyche’s side.
The attack often flattered to deceive against Everton and Klopp will hope they are more clinical in front of goal.
With Mane unlikely to feature, Roberto Firmino could be shifted to a wider role and replace the Senegalese on the left.
Daniel Sturridge deserves a start and should lead the line while Mohamed Salah is expected to feature on the right.
