Match preview

Jota still absent - How Liverpool could line up against Burnley

Jurgen Klopp confirmed at the weekend that the Portuguese will miss the final two matches of the Premier League season

Liverpool will be without Diogo Jota for the final two Premier League fixtures of the season including the clash against Burnley on Wednesday.

The 2019/20 champions head into the finale of the campaign still with hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.

As things stand, they are fifth in the table one point adrift of Chelsea in fourth and three points adrift of Leicester in third.

Liverpool's fate is essentially in their own hands as Chelsea actually play Leicester on Tuesday, meaning one or both of those two clubs will drop points.

If the Reds win their final two fixtures, they will qualify for the Champions League.

As mentioned above they will have to compete without Jota in these games after he was ruled out with a foot injury.

That should present Jurgen Klopp with the easy call of fielding Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah as his front three.

The German had a small falling out with Mane recently after he was left out of the Man Utd game, but the Senegalese would return for the win versus West Brom.

In the win against West Brom, the match winner turned out to be none other than goalkeeper Alisson, who sensationally scored a header in the 95th minute to claim all three points for his side.

The Brazilian became just the sixth goalkeeper in Premier League history to score a goal, and he'll start this one between the sticks.

Ozan Kabak won't play again this season and maybe not for the club again, meaning we should see a central defensive pairing of Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams again, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson at full-back.

Against West Brom Curtis Jones was brought in, but Gini Wijnaldum will probably be reinstated here alongside Thiago and Fabinho in midfield.
