Burnley picked up a good point against Man United in midweek to make it three successive league draws. It is though 11 without a victory which means they sit bottom of the Premier League table. Their matches have become tight with their last three games producing a total of just two goals.

Maxwel Cornet has two from the last five here although he is an injury concern after going off in midweek.
Liverpool last played in the Premier League on Thursday evening when they faced Leicester. Prior to that they won back-to-back matches and lost just one of their last 11.

Five of the last seven the Merseysiders have played on the road have seen both teams score. The last eight goals netted by them on the road have come from different players each time. In three of their last four away matches Liverpool have scored in the first-half.
