Wijnaldum To Start, Jones On The Bench: Liverpool’s Predicted XI To Play Burnley

Wijnaldum To Start, Jones On The Bench: Liverpool’s Predicted XI To Play Burnley

Liverpool have very few options to rotate due to the club’s injury crisis so don’t expect many changes when they face Burnley at Turf Moor this evening.

After his heroics at the Hawthorns, Alisson will start in goal, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson taking up the fullback positions.

With neither Ben Davies nor Ozan Kabak likely to be fit for the last two games, it means manager Jurgen Klopp will have to persist with Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams in the centre of defence.

The Reds can freshen things up slightly in midfield, with Georginio Wijnaldum expected to come back into the side ahead of Curtis Jones. Thiago and Fabinho will keep their places.

Although Klopp was more optimistic about Diogo Jota’s fitness than he was last week, the Portuguese forward won’t be ready to play tonight, so Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah will remain as the front three.

Liverpool’s Predicted XI To Face Burnley:

Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Williams, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Thiago, Salah, Firmino, Mane
