LIV Vs BUR Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Liverpool find themselves in a serios turmoil as the club faces its worst attacking crisis under Klopp.
Never in all of Jurgen Klopp’s time at the helm of Liverpool has the club endured a bigger drought infront of the goal than it is now. Going three matches on the spin without a goal, the club has had to pay a calamitous prize for its barren run.
Losing out on top spot in the league, the side’s 0-0 draw the last time around sees the side sit as low as fourth spot at the moment. The side has failed to register a win in its last four matches, results which have left the wheels come unravelling from the side’s juggernaut.
With a revered Burnley defensive setup staring at them today, Liverpool will face another daunting test as they aspire to break their rut.
LIV Vs BUR Fantasy Probable Winner
Liverpool will be made to sweat it out by Burnley but we do envisage the hosts doing just about enough to scram their way to a one goal win.

Premier League 2020-21
Match: Liverpool Vs Burnley
Date And Time: 22nd January, Friday- 1:30am IST
Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley
Television: Star Sports Select 1/HD, Disney+ Hotstar
Top Goal Scorer
- Salah: 13 Goals, 3 Assists
- Wood: 3 Goals, 1 Assist
As has become customary now, scoring past Nick Pope hasn’t been something everyone has managed to do.
The one area Liverpool have done extremely well in this time of trouble is the defensive side of the game. The team has the three cleansheets in its last five matches, a club which has swept attacks under the mat with ease.
With Burnley known to offer extremely little up the park, Liverpool could easily end up with a third successive cleansheet today. It sees us indulge in Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson and Fabinho from the club.
Erik Pieters meanwhile makes his way into our setup from Burnley.
He’s not been at his influential best this season but Sadio Mane still has the six strikes to show for his efforts. Thiago Alacantra pulled the strings for the club the last time around as his expansive skill set saw him conduct play in midfield.
Jordan Henderson did a more than decent job at CB to see him complete the trio of picks from the side.
We’ll meanwhile be snaring Josh Brownhill from the visiting team owing to his ability to break attacking plays. Ashley Westwood with the one goal and one assist links up.
Mohamed Salah has now failed to score for a lengthy period but the Liverpool top scorer was going nowhere for us.
Captain And Vice-Captain
13 goal man Salah captains our side while Robertson is the vice-captain.
Areola, Harry, Alex, Aaron, Tosin, Paul, Bruno, Andre, Reed, Ivan, Marcus
