Henderson set to start? How Liverpool could line up against Burnley

Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool side will be desperate to pick up all three points against Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday

Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool side will be determined to keep themselves in the Premier League title race with a win away to Burnley on Sunday.

The hosts took a point off Manchester United in midweek and could draw a line under this season’s race for the league title if they cause an upset against Liverpool.

However, Klopp should have plenty of confidence going into the game with a full-strength team that are on a dangerous run of form.

In defence, the Liverpool manager should be able to call on a full fit back line of Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Jordan Henderson missed out on the last game with a back injury, but is expected to return to the starting XI against Burnley. Thiago is unlikely to start back-to-back games, so he’ll likely drop out for the club captain, with Naby Kieta also stepping into the team alongside Fabinho.

Up front, Klopp could continue to give Sadio Mane a rest after his return from AFCON, which would mean Luis Diaz once again playing on the left wing, with Mohamed Salah on the right and goal scorer Diogo Jota through the middle.
