Liverpool will clash heads with Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon, hoping to pick up a win away from home. The Reds will be heading into the contest on the back of an encouraging 2-0 win against Leicester City, whereas the Clarets recorded a 1-1 draw with Manchester United on February 9.

Having returned from the African Cup of Nations, Sadio Mane could be in contention to make the starting eleven this week.

Jurgen Klopp will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game, as Mohamed Salah looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

Alisson Becker should operate between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Brazilian shot-stopper will hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Sunday.

Joel Matip will form the centre-half partnership with Joel Matip at the heart of Liverpool’s backline.

Andrew Robertson is a guaranteed starter at the left wing-back position, whereas Trent Alexander-Arnold will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back. The full-backs will be expected to stretch their side’s attack in the opposition half.

Konstantinos Tsimikas will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the latter stages of the game if needed.

Midfield

Fabinho might start in the holding midfield position and could be assigned with more of a defensive role to shield the away side’s back-four.

Curtis Jones and Thiago Alcantara will slot into the central midfield roles. The duo would be determined to set up some clear-cut goal scoring chances for the front men.

Attack

Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing, respectively.

Diogo Jota will lead the line for the hosts this weekend. The Portugal international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the Burnley defence that has conceded seven goals in their last five matches across all competitions.

Sadio Mane could come off the bench in the second forty-five minutes of the match.
