Liverpool will clash heads with Burnley at the Turf Moor on Wednesday night at the back of a last-gasp win over Everton last weekend. The Reds are still unbeaten in the Premier League and would go into this clash hoping to close the gap with Manchester City at the top of the league table.

Jurgen Klopp will line up his team in a 4-3-3 formation and might make a few changes to his side especially in midfield to freshen up his side for this midweek encounter.

4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Burnley

Defence

Alisson Becker will resume his goalkeeping duties for the Merseyside outfit after his heroics against Everton last weekend ensured a vital win. Simon Mignolet will play as a back-up to the Brazilian number one on Klopp’s bench.

The centre-half pairing of Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez have worked well for Klopp’s side in recent weeks, and they should continue their excellent partnership at the heart of the Reds backline. If Gomez plays at centre-back, then it would mean Trent Alexander-Arnold will start on the right while Andrew Robertson would look to put on another hard-working shift at left-back.

Dejan Lovren should be available on the bench and could come on during the latter stages of the contest if needed.

Midfield

James Milner was rested against Everton, so he is a guaranteed starter in midfield for this upcoming clash at Turf Moor. Naby Keita and Fabinho could join the Englishman as the duo looks to impress Klopp so that they can establish themselves as regular starters in the Liverpool first-team.

Adam Lallana is a major doubt for this match but the Reds would be boosted by the news that Jordan Henderson will be free to play against the Clarets after serving his one-match ban last weekend.

Attack

The terrific trio of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah are expected to start at Turf Moor on Wednesday night despite their lacklustre performances against Paris Saint-Germain and Everton last week. Both Daniel Sturridge and the hero of the Merseyside derby, Divock Origi will be available on the bench as Klopp could bring them on if the Merseysiders are in need of a goal late in the match.

Xherdan Shaqiri could also be benched after he failed to take his chances versus the Toffees on Sunday.
