Liverpool will look to give their Champions League qualification hopes a major boost when they travel to Burnley on Wednesday at 8:15pm (UK time).
Jurgen Klopp’s men have won their last three Premier League games to drag themselves back into fifth place. The Reds are just three points behind fourth-placed Leicester City and will now have the Foxes’ spot in their sights. Win both of their remaining games (including this one against an already-safe Burnley side) and Liverpool will dine at Europe’s top table once again next season.

Burnley vs Liverpool predicted XIs:
With the Euro 2020 less than a month away, Sean Dyche is unlikely to risk Nick Pope here, as the goalkeeper continues his recovery from a knee problem. Dale Stephens and Phil Bardsley are also doubts, while Robbie Brady and Kevin Long are both out.
Liverpool still have a monstrous injury list, with Klopp recently confirming Diogo Jota will not play again for the club again this season, but James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are both nearing returns to action.
- Burnley: Peacock-Farrell; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Barnes.
- Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Williams, Phillips, Robertson; Thiago, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
Can Salah end poor personal record to help Reds win ‘semi-final’?
From Golden Boots to winning the Premier League, there isn’t much Mohamed Salah hasn’t achieved during his time with Liverpool. But curiously, he heads into this game against Burnley with a very poor personal record against the Clarets, at least by his own standards.
In six top-flight appearances against Burnley so far, Salah has scored just once, with that goal coming in his first appearances against the club in a Liverpool shirt back in 2017, while he has another two assists. He and his Liverpool teammates have taken just one point from their last two games against Dyche’s side.
Ahead of Wednesday’s clash, Klopp likened the match to a ‘semi-final’ in their quest to secure Champions League football — an achievement that looked like a mere pipedream just a couple of months ago.
“Definitely,” Klopp responded when asked if this game felt like a semi-final. “We had already, I don’t know what it was, last-64 or last-32, last-16, so we had all of them already. We needed a lot of results in the last few games. I think in the last eight, if I’m right, it was six wins, two draws – and the two draws we lost pretty much in the last minute of the game.
“It’s obviously the period where we can put some things right, but not one second in this time it was easy. It was always hardest work and waiting until the last second, the final goal against United in the 90th minute. It’s a tough period but it’s the year. We have the chance and actually, I don’t need more, so we’re really looking forward to the next one.”
Getting Salah on the scoresheet against a tough opponent would go a long way toward helping Klopp secure his Champions League goal.
And aside from Liverpool’s Champions League hunt, Salah is also locked in a fierce battle with Harry Kane for the Premier League Golden Boot. Both forwards are tied on 22 goals with the Tottenham striker slowing up to one goal in his last three appearances, while Salah has found the net in each of his last two appearances.
Either Salah or Kane has won the Golden Boot in four of the last seven Premier League campaigns but rather than share it as he did in 2018/19, Salah would love to assert his dominance over the next two games and take the crown for himself.
