Liverpool staff information: Predicted 4-3-Three line up vs Burnley – Keita begins

LIVERPOOL welcome Burnley to Anfield this afternoon looking to close the four-point gap to Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp is aiming to rally his side following more dropped points against Everton last weekend.

Manchester City’s win last night leaves Liverpool with no option but to win if they want to remain competitive in the title race.

The Reds must also prepare for a huge midweek clash against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

But with so little margin for error Klopp can ill afford to rest too many of his key players.

Dejan Lovren is in contention to return to the squad following a two-month absence with a hamstring injury.

James Milner has been struggling with a muscle problem, but is expected to be available for selection.

However Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are both continuing their rehabilitation from long-term injuries.

Oxlade-Chamberlain made his comeback in an under-23s game on Friday night, but Gomez must wait until after the international break to return to competitive action.

Despite playing two games in three days Klopp is still set to go with his recognised front-three.

Thus meaning both Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge will impact from the bench if required.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has no fresh injury worries for the trip to Anfield.

Steven Defour is not expected to play again this season after undergoing a calf operation.

Whilst Aaron Lennon is not yet fit following knee surgery in December.

Liverpool predicted team: Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Matip, Alexander-Arnold; Keita, Henderson, Fabinho; Salah, Firmino, Mane
