Burnley Team News:

  • Sean Dyche was quite optimistic about Johann Berg Gudmundsson‘s injury issue, which at first looked serious enough to keep the player out for a significant period. But Dyche said that he expects the 28-year-old Icelandic to return from the injury after the international break. So he is out of this game.
  • Robbie Brady has made progress in his recovery from a rib injury, but remains out at this moment, along with Steven Defour.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • Aaron Lennon is the likeliest player to replace Johann Berg Gudmundsson in the playing 11.
  • Daniel Drinkwater made his first appearance as a Burnley player in the Carabao Cup 2nd round tie against Sunderland. But both Ashley Westwood and Jack Cork looked solid in the central midfield, and Dyche is not known for flirting with an established system.
  • While Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood will once again lead the lines for the Clarets.

Burnley Probable XI:

Pope (GK), Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Pieters, Lennon, Cork, Westwood, McNeil, Wood, Barnes

Liverpool FC Team News:

  • Alisson Becker remains an injury absentee for the European champions. The Brazil international picked up a calf injury during Liverpool's 4-1 opening day win over Norwich City. He is expected to be back only after the international break.
  • Nathaniel Clyne is also a long-term injury absentee.
  • Jurgen Klopp revealed that Naby Keita is nearing a return but is most likely to come into the playing 11 only after the international break.

Possible ins or outs of this game:

  • Adrian will once again keep the gloves for the Reds.
  • Either Joel Matip or Joe Gomez will partner the newly-crowned European player of the year Virgil Van Dijk at the back.
  • Fabinho walks straight into the playing 11 these days, while Jordan Henderson, being the club captain, will start as well. So Geroginio Wijnaldum, James Milner and Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain will fight for the remaining one spot.
  • While Liverpool's famous front-three picks themselves for any game.

Liverpool Probable XI:

Adrian (GK), Alexander Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip / Gomez, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum / Milner / Chamberlain, Mane, Firmino, Salah

Likely to score:

  • For Burnley: Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes
  • For Liverpool: Salah, Mane, Firmino

Captain and Vice-Captain options:

Roberto Firmino: A striker of his own unique traits. Asks Jurgen Klopp, or any of his teammates, all will sings songs about the impact he has on this team. The Brazilian is a huge part of Klopp's pressing system with the manager himself hailing Firmino as his team's first line of defence.

The 27-year-old is already up and running for the season and will be looking to add more goals to his tally.

Last season:

  • Games: 52
  • Goals: 18
  • Assists: 10

Sadio Mane: The goal against Southampton was a truly world-class strike. It came out of nowhere, in fact against the run of the play. But that's Liverpool, so much talent that it takes only a moment to turn the tide.

The Senegalese is a trump card for Klopp who, more often than not, weaves his magic when he situation demands.

Last season:

  • Games: 55
  • Goals: 29
  • Assists: 03

Mohamed Salah: No need to mention the Egyptian King here. He topped the goal scoring charts for Liverpool in the last two years and is already up and running for the season with three goals in three games, including two against Arsenal last weekend.

Last season:

  • Games: 54
  • Goals: 29
  • Assists: 10

Ashley Barnes: The 29-year-old has made an incredible start to the new season, scoring goals in every league game heaidng into this matahc.

With a lot of wind in his sails, the 29-year-old will be very hard to stop in front of his own fans.

Last season's stats:

  • Games: 37
  • Goals: 12
  • Assists: 02

This season:

  • Games: 03
  • Goals: 04

Suggested combination:

BUR vs LIV Dream11 potential winner:
Liverpool are favorite to win the game.
