Liverpool team news vs Burnley
Liverpool will be hoping Mohamed Salah can shake off a knock picked up in the win over Leiceser. The Egyptian was forced off on a hat-trick as “he was limping”, Klopp said.
Due to fixture congestion, you’d expect to see at least one or two changes. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Simon Mignolet, Gini Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could all return to the starting eleven.
Nathaniel Clyne, Jordan Henderson and Alberto Moreno are all still sidelined, while Daniel Sturridge is a doubt.
Liverpool have two former Burnley players on their books in Jon Flanagan and Danny Ings, although neither is likely to feature.
