Sports Mole looks at how Liverpool could line up for their Premier League clash with Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
By | 3mo

Liverpool will look to claim their fourth Premier League win in a row this season when they visit Turf Moor to face Burnley on Saturday night.

Jurgen Klopp's men have topped the table following Manchester City's failure to beat Tottenham Hotspur and a convincing 3-1 win of their own against Arsenal at Anfield.

The Reds will feel confident despite the intensity of the challenge posed by a resolute Burnley side playing at home, with no other team losing fewer games away from home during the 2018-19 campaign than Liverpool.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how they could line up for the meeting with Sean Dyche's men.




Out: Naby Keita (groin), Nathaniel Clyne (knee), Alisson Becker

Perhaps the greatest chink in Liverpool's armour right now is new reserve goalkeeper signing Adrian Lopez, thrust into the deep end following Alisson's injury and Simon Mignolet's departure for Club Brugge this month. The Spaniard's elementary mistake against Southampton last time out let the latter back into the game and created an air of uncertainty for those closing 10 minutes.

At the back, full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson continue to play a fundamental role in the structure of Liverpool's attacks, and will be expected to bomb forward and pin Burnley's wide men as far back as possible to prevent counterattacks.

Joel Matip is quickly becoming an indispensable player alongside Virgil van Dijk, with Dejan Lovren edging closer to completing a move to Italy.

Further forward, Klopp may look to rotate Georginio Wijnaldum with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who continues to work towards full fitness following a year out with a severe knee injury. The Englishman will be expected to provide greater attacking thrust and serve as a key link between midfield and attack for when Liverpool break in their own half.

Perhaps the most crucial midfield role, however, belongs to Fabinho, who will occupy defensive midfield, bringing a mixture of calm on the ball and aggression in the air at set pieces - two things no side can do without at Turf Moor.

Further forward, that front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane could be considered the most dangerous attacking trio in world football at this moment in time. They have scored five of Liverpool's nine goals in the league so far this season, and you would strongly expect at least one of them to add to that tally against Burnley.
