The first week of the new Premier League season was fruitful for Liverpool as they stole all three points against a weak Arsenal side that tries their best to exploit the visitors’ weakness in defense. However, the Reds managed to hold on to a victory and are going into the next round of the campaign with a win at their back. They will once again be on the travels due to the construction of the main stand and will fight for another three points at Turf Moor this weekend. Here is Liverpool’s predicted line-up to face Burnley on Saturday:

Team News:

The Reds will welcome the likes of Daniel Sturridge and James Milner both of who might play a role in the team on the night. However, star winger Sadio Mane picked up a shoulder injury and will not be risked for this game. Mamadou Sakho and Joel Matip are both back in training while Loris Karius, Lucas Leiva and Sheyi Ojo are still nursing injuries. Here is their strongest lineup for the trip to Turf Moor:

Goal Keeper:

Simon Mignolet:

With the injury to Karius, the Belgian has once again taken the number.1 spot in the side and will be hoping to make himself a name and put forth a case for his place in the starting XI.

Defense:

Nathaniel Clyne:

One of the first names on the team sheets for Liverpool, Clyne, will once again start as the right-back for Liverpool and will hope to make an impact on the game.

Dejan Lovren:

Though had his moments in the game against Arsenal, Lovren has been decent in defense and will start there for the trip to Burnley.

Ragnar Klavan:

The former Augsburg man was one of the players of the game against Arsenal for the Reds and will once again start alongside Dejan Lovren at the back for Liverpool.

Alberto Moreno:

Though he has come under some criticism recently, Moreno was backed up by his manager in the press conference ahead of the this game and will keep his place in the starting XI.

Midfield:

Emre Can:

Was not fit enough to start the game against Arsenal but with another week of training, Can will be given the defensive midfield role for this game against Burnley.

Jordan Henderson:

Though did not set the field on fire in the game against Arsenal, Liverpool’s club captain will once again be playing an important role in the midfield for the club at the Turf Moor.

Adam Lallana:

After a decent performance against Arsenal in the midfield, Adam Lallana will take the place of Sadio Mane on the right flank after his injury and will hope to have a similar impact like at the Emirates where he got himself a goal.

Roberto Firmino:

The Brazilian was influential once again in a false 9 role at the Emirates but Liverpool will have him play as a playmaker just behind the striker for the game on Saturday.

Phillipe Coutinho:

The man of the match at the Emirates, Coutinho seems to be in good touch and can be easily be the man who can demolish the Burnley side on the night.

Attack:

Daniel Sturridge:

Having come back to training after a small injury lay-off, Sturridge looks sharp according to the manager and may be given the striking role for the club against Burnley.
