Klopp To Make 4 Key Changes: Predicted Liverpool XI vs Burnley

By on September 14, 2017

Liverpool get back to Premier League action after their exploits in the Champions League when they welcome Burnley to Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Loris Karius was given a run-out in Europe last night but number one Simon Mignolet is expected to be recalled between the sticks this weekend.

Defence: Joe Gomez started at right-back during the 2-2 draw with Sevilla and he was sent off during the closing stages of the game. The youngster had a decent game overall but I’d expect Trent Alexander-Arnold to be recalled against Burnley.

Andrew Robertson is pushing for a start at left-back but Alberto Moreno put in an excellent performance last night so he could keep his place this weekend.

Joel Matip is certain to retain his place and Klopp may stick with Dejan Lovren despite the Croatian international’s calamitous display in the Champions League.

Midfield: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is fresh so he could be handed his full debut in midfield with Gini Wijnaldum given a breather. Emre Can should keep his place along with skipper Jordan Henderson in the middle of the park.

Attack: Philippe Coutinho made his first appearance in a Liverpool shirt this season with a late cameo against Sevilla but the Brazilian international is expected to come in to the starting eleven with Sadio Mane suspended following his controversial dismissal against Man City last week.

Mohamed Salah overcame a sore throat to face Sevilla so he should retain his place in attack while Roberto Firmino should once again lead the line up front despite missing a pivotal penalty last night.

Adam Lallana remains on the sidelines with a thigh injury while Daniel Sturridge is once again set for a place on the bench.

Here is how we think Liverpool will line up:
