Liverpool vs. Burnley: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool will be looking to recover from their heavy loss at Manchester City when they meet Burnley on Saturday.

The Reds were thrashed 5-0 at the Etihad, with Sadio Mane’s early red card the game defining moment.

In their Champions League opener Liverpool conceded a late equaliser at home to Sevilla.

Burnley continued their solid start to the league season as they edged past Crystal Palace.

Chris Wood’s second goal in as many games was the difference, with Frank de Boer sacked on the back of a fourth consecutive Palace loss.

Match history
Liverpool recovered from a goal down to beat Burnley in the meeting last year, with Emre Can the match winner.

Burnley stunned the Reds in the reverse fixture though, with two early goals securing all three points.

Team news
Mane starts the first of a three game domestic ban here and won’t be involved here.

Philippe Coutinho could make his first start of the season after coming off the bench in the Champions League.

Tom Heaton was forced off against Palace with a dislocated shoulder, meaning Tom Pope will deputise in goal.

Jonathan Walters could partner Wood up front, with Sam Vokes dropping out of the XI.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Matip, Robertson; Can, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Firmino, Coutinho
Burnley (4-4-2): Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Ward; Gudmundsson, Cork, Defour, Brady; Wood, Walters
