Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are looking to bounce back from a defeat to Arsenal in their last match. They will be facing Burnley in a rare 3pm Premier League kick-off today and will be aiming to return to winning ways. The defeat to Arsenal has dealt a blow to their hopes of winning the title in Jurgen Klopp’s final season.
The team is facing the challenge of battling flu, which could complicate matters. The manager, Jurgen Klopp, may make some tweaks to his starting XI for this match. Undisputed No.1 Alisson will be looking to make amends after not keeping a clean sheet in his last three Anfield appearances.
Ibrahima Konate will serve a one-match suspension after being sent off in the previous match, and Jarell Quansah is expected to partner captain Van Dijk in defense. Andy Robertson is fit again and expected to start at left-back for the first time in 2024. In midfield, injuries to Dominik Szoboszlai and Thiago Alcantara have limited the options for Klopp.
Wataru Endo, Alexis Mac Allister, Curtis Jones, and Harvey Elliott are expected to fill the midfield roles. Upfront, Mohamed Salah is still out injured, Darwin Nunez is expected to start down the middle, with Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota completing the front three. The predicted Liverpool XI vs Burnley is: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Quansah, Van Dijk, Robertson; Endo, Mac Allister, Jones; Jota, Nunez, Diaz.
There are expected to be several changes from the previous match, with players in and out of the starting lineup.
