Liverpool will travel to the Turf Moor to clash heads with Burnley on Saturday evening. The Reds will come into this game on the back of a dominant 3-1 win over Arsenal at Anfield last weekend. The Merseyside giants are in a rich vein of form in the Premier League and will look stretch their winning run to 13 when they face off against the Clarets later this week.
Jurgen Klopp will likely stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and might name the same team that started against the Gunners.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Burnley
Adrian will retain his place in between the sticks for the Reds in the absence of Alisson Becker, who will be out of action for several weeks after he suffered a calf injury against Norwich City in the opening night of the season.
Joel Matip and Virgil Van Dijk will operate as the centre-back at the heart of the Liverpool backline. Both players are still looking to keep their first clean sheet of this new campaign so this weekend’s game against the Clarets could be an ideal opportunity for them to do so.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will resume his role as the right-back as he tries to whip in some dangerous crosses into the Burnley penalty box. Andrew Robertson will look to work his socks off on the other side in the left-back position. Joe Gomez will have to settle for a spot on Klopp’s bench but might get a chance to make an impact in the second half if required.
The Reds midfield might be comprised of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum once again after they collectively performed well against Arsenal last weekend. The hard-working trio will look to press high up the pitch and dominate possession for Liverpool at the centre of the park.
James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana are expected to be a part of Klopp’s bench and might get a chance to feature in the game if needed. However, Naby Keita is still sidelined with an injury and won’t take part in this weekend’s encounter at Turf Moor.
The in-form Liverpool front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah will be deployed against the Clarets up top. All three players are in a rich vein of form and will fancy their chances of scoring against the Burnley defenders.
Divock Origi might get an opportunity to come off the bench and make an impact in the second half if Klopp decides to call upon his services.
