Its quite unusual for Liverpool to play a Saturday 3 pm kick-off in the PL but to play a televised game at that time must be unique. After their drubbing by City, Burnley have been on a good run. I read on one site that they have nothing to play for but in fact thay have a decent chance of qualifying for the Europa League. So this will be the usual battle that Burnley always give us. It's very hard to predict the team because of the need to rotate with games coming thick and fast. Players who were rested for the last game are likely to start, so Mane and Fabinho will almost certainly start. Milner and Lovren are now fit but I would sooner see the former start than the latter. My suggested team is:
Trent Gomez VVD Robertson
Milner Fabinho Keita
Salah Minamino Mane
I guess Salah could be rested but I wouldn't like to be the person telling him he's not starting when he's after the golden boot, so I expect him to play. I've put in Minamino. If he doesn't start this one I don't see him starting any of the remaining three games and I would like to see how he can play the Firmino role. Burnley have done well against lower placed teams and those around them in mid-table but have not picked up many points against the top 6. I'm expecting a tough game but I saw a big improvement in the Brighton game. I think we are hitting our stride (some defensive lapses aside) and I would expect another three points.
