LIV vs BUR Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Rampant Liverpool side marauding their way towards ascertaining their stature in Premier League folklore.
After becoming the earliest ever champions of the Premier League, Liverpool showed that their famish for breaking more records was still very much alive. This is an unstoppable juggernaut, a side out to make a true standing for itself and be remembered for years to come owing to the dominant manner in which it lifted the glistening trophy.
And the next record the club has its eyes set on is breaching the 100 point mark and obliterating the points record established by Manchester City. Currently on 92 points, three wins in their remaining four clashes would help Liverpool quench their quest of becoming the most decorated Premier League club ever.
On a two match winning spree after thumping Brighton 3-1 the last time around, Liverpool are back at their imperious and lethal best. And the side needed to be in pinch perfect form ahead of today’s encounter as well with the club coming across a rejuvenated Burnley side, a club which has defied all the naysayers to wade its way into 10th spot.
LIV vs BUR Dream11 Probable Winner
From being down in the dumps as they stared at relegation in the first half to currently being unbeaten in their last four encounters, Burnley’s transformation has been a remarkable one. This club will not roll over today, making life extremely tough for the league leaders all across the 90 minutes.
However, Liverpool’s ability to forage through goals even against the most lethal of defences is what will see the table toppers come out with a win on the day.

LIV vs BUR Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Now the goal-keeper with the most number of cleansheets in his kitty after sending West Ham skittling in the previous encounter, Nick Pope was someone we just couldn’t leave out. He’s been at the forefront of Burnley retaining their traditional quality as a defensive unit with the shot stopper having accrued the 14 cleansheets in his favour.
LIV vs BUR Dream11 Defenders
Liverpool did concede the one goal the last time around but that isn’t going to deter us from opting for their entire backline for the incoming contest. This is the league’s most well versed and sparkling backline, a team which has emerged as a defensive unit teams have gotten cold feet when coming across.
Along with this narrative, Burnley aren’t known as the most alluring of attacking contingents, a team which will massively struggle to pile on the goals today. We’ll be making Andrew Robertson the first pick from the side with the player having moved upto 9 assists this season after assisting in the foregone clash.
Trent Alexander-Arnold with the three goals and 11 assists comes in alongside him, a fullback partnership which has never left the sanctum of our Dream 11 side when Liverpool have been in play. Joe Gomez and Virgil Van-Dijk partner him up, two names who have laid down the foundation of Liverpool’s’ first ever title win from the back.
Elsewhere, Burnley’s resilient defence was deserving of a pick as well with Charlie Taylor being our man for the day after his assist in the side’s 1-0 win the last time around.
LIV vs BUR Dream11 Midfielders
Although Burnley make for an extremely tricky side to score against, Liverpool are capable of breaching them owing to 16 goal Sadio Mane. Naby Keita will move into this slot alongside him with the player making the most of his starts in the team’s playing 11 to accrue two assists in successive matches.
On the other hand, its just the one selection for us from Burnley with the enigmatic and well endowed Ashley Westwood being ingrained in our side courtesy of his 6 assists.
LIV vs BUR Dream11 Strikers
From languishing in the race of the Golden Boot to now moving into third place in the top scorers pile this season with two goals against Brighton, Mohammed Salah was always going to be a must have pick for us. On the other hand, Burnley will be represented by Jay Rodriguez after he piled on the 7th goal for the club this season the last time around.
Captain And Vice-Captain
19 goals and 9 assists meant Salah was always going to captain our side while Trent is the vice-captain.
