As for the Clarets, Sean Dyche has no injury concerns for the trip to Anfield. Matthew Taylor, Dean Marney and Kevin Long are long term absentees.

As for those fit and able, the Anfield crowd will be looking forward to another chance to see Philippe Coutinho (6/1 to be 1st scorer, 6/4 anytime) in action.

The Brazilian midfielder was the man of the match in last weekend’s 2-1 win over Man City, while Raheem Sterling (7/2 to be 1st scorer) should also excite the crowd with his pace and thoughtfulness up front.
