Burnley Vs Liverpool Dream11 prediction: The SportsRush brings you the Dream11 prediction between Burnley and Liverpool.
Liverpool will travel to Turf Moor in the hopes of clinching three points against Burnley on Saturday. The Reds are the only team to maintain 100% win record in the opening three games, while the Clarets have won four points out of the possible nine.
Sean Dyche’s side was triumphant in their display against Southampton, thereby clinching a 4-0 victory. They were defeated by Arsenal in the subsequent week before drawing parity with Wolves. They have the much-needed confidence heading into this fixture.
On the other hand, Jurgen Klopp will be focussed on getting the job done before the International break. The reigning Champions League winners have not been at their best, yet crossed the hurdles against Norwich City, Southampton, and Arsenal.
Liverpool were made to work hard last season, coming back from a one-goal deficit. They scored through James Milner, Roberto Firmino, and Xherdan Shaqiri before Jack Cork took the lead in the second half. The Reds are the favourites, but Dyche’s side are resilient and could cause troubles.
We shall look at the Dream11 team between Liverpool and Burnley.
BURNLEY PREDICTED STARTING LINEUP:
Nick Pope, Matthew Lowton, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Erik Pieters, Jack Cork, Ashley Woodwood, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Dwight McNeil, Ashley Barnes, Chris Wood.
LIVERPOOL PREDICTED STARTING LINEUP:
Adrian, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino.
BURNLEY VS LIVERPOOL DREAM11 PREDICTED LINEUP
Adrian: Adrian is the current number one for Liverpool. The Spaniard has been at times poor in his decision making but makes plenty of saves. With a better defence in front of him, Adrian has more chances of keeping a clean sheet.
Joel Matip: Since Burnley will aim to suffocate the full-backs, the centre-backs will be crucial to Liverpool’s hopes. Matip has not stopped following his fabulous start this season. He is a threat from the set pieces, and most recently scored the opening goal against Arsenal.
James Tarkowski: James Tarkowski is an excellent defender, who has the capability of nullifying the opponent’s strengths. He is a surreal header off the ball, making it life difficult for the opponents.
Virgil Van Dijk: Virgil Van Dijk is the linchpin of Liverpool’s side. The Dutchman is a complete defender and wins duels and has the ability to notch up assists and goals too.
Erik Pieters: Burnley’s left-back Erik Pieters will have a daunting task by operating against Mohamed Salah. The defender is defensively solid, but his attacking play doesn’t come into play more often.
Jeff Henricks: Jeff Henricks is the main creator of Burnley. The midfielder has the creative spark to enlist a difference in the game. He’s coming up against a tougher midfielder, which does a lot of running.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Burnley will invite pressure into their half. This will make tougher for the full-backs to find the forwards inside the penalty box. The English International can break defences with his breakneck pace and scores long rangers too.
Mohamed Salah (C): Mohamed Salah scored a brace against Arsenal last weekend. The Egyptian has surreal conversion numbers as he likes to get into scoring positions more often than not. He’s also the first choice penalty taker for the Reds.
Sadio Mane: Sadio Mane has been on a high since the turn of the New Year. He has scored second-most goals against Aguero in the calendar year and scored a brace against Chelsea in the Super Cup and one against Southampton in the second game of the PL.
Ashley Barnes (VC): The striker is in a great form having found the back of the net on four occasions from three appearances this season. He is a great hold up player and can score goals from the set pieces too.
Roberto Firmino: Roberto Firmino is the man, who gels the whole side with his tremendous work rate. He has a superb physique and could displace the Clarets centre-backs, who are not quick. He has the eye for goal and can create havoc in the set pieces.
