Klopp to start Divock Origi? – Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Burnley

Divock Origi scores for Liverpool against Everton

Liverpool will be riding high after their last-minute win over Everton but face a tough test against Burnley at Turf Moor.

The Clarets are 19th in the table but they are never easy opponents to play. Sean Dyche is under some pressure as he looks to turn things around for the side and Jurgen Klopp knows we have to win here ahead of the clash against Bournemouth at the weekend.

The Reds might make a few changes to the side given some injury news and concerns, and here is our predicted line-up ahead of the game on Wednesday.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Alisson (GK)

Alisson made a huge save from Andre Gomes on Sunday and would look to keep another clean sheet against Burnley too.

Joe Gomez (RB)

Gomez provides more solidity at the back than Trent Alexander-Arnold and Klopp might think about playing it safe at the back.

Virgil van Dijk (CB)

We can’t think about a game without the Dutch defender starting. Van Dijk has been excellent for us and should continue in the starting XI for the Reds.

Dejan Lovren Mohamed Salah

Dejan Lovren (CB)

Lovren might not be played in some of the big games but the Croatian could start on Wednesday.

Alberto Moreno (LB)

Andy Robertson has a slight knock and we could see Moreno get a rare start for the Reds.

James Milner (CM)

Milner did not start in our win over Everton and Klopp could rotate the side around ahead of the Burnley tie.

Jordan Henderson (CM)

Liverpool’s captain was suspended for the derby and should make a return to the starting XI on Wednesday.

Naby Keita Liverpool

Naby Keita

Naby Keita (CM)

Keita did a decent job for Liverpool coming off the bench on Sunday, and he certainly could help our attack on Wednesday.

Xherdan Shaqiri (LW)

Shaqiri missed a great chance against Everton but he was great in the game and should keep his place in the team, especially with Sadio Mane having a knock.

Divock Origi (ST)

Roberto Firmino seems tired and could do with a rest and we could see our derby hero get a start.

Mohamed Salah (RW)

The Egyptian has to be in great touch against a tough Burnley side, and hopefully, he finds the back of the net at Turf Moor.

Injury updates on two Liverpool stars that missed 3-1 win over Manchester United

Liverpool continue their Premier League journey with a tough trip to Molineux against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Wolves will not be easy opponents for the Premier League leaders on Friday as they held Manchester City and defeated Chelsea earlier this season.

Liverpool come off a comfortable 3-1 win over Manchester United, and Jurgen Klopp shared some injury news ahead of the clash.

The German revealed that Trent Alexander-Arnold is looking good after missing the win over United but won’t be ready for the clash against Wolves (h/t Liverpoolfc.com).

“It actually looks surprisingly good.

“I think Wolves will still be a bit too early but after that, they told me we can think about him.

“But for that, he needs to train. So far he didn’t train but the pain goes down second by second, which is good, and then in the moment when he can deal with it, he is on the pitch, and in the moment he is on the pitch we’ll make a decision.”

The Reds played with Nathaniel Clyne as the right-back on Sunday and we James Milner missed the United game too.

The Englishman was not risked by Klopp on Sunday, and Milner shared an update on his injury.

Liverpool face another tough game in the Premier League on Friday as the leaders face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

The Wolves might be newly promoted but also have a win over Chelsea and a draw against Manchester City at home.

The Reds are in fantastic form going into the game with a huge win over Manchester United at the weekend.

Sadio Mane in training

Sadio Mane scored the opening goal of the game against United, and the Senegal star was pictured in training. Mohamed Salah would also want to score a goal or two against the Wolves, and the pair seemed to be ready for the clash.

Our defence wasn’t tested much by the Red Devils on Sunday, but Alisson would want to forget about the mistake that cost us a goal.

The Brazilian should be joined in the starting XI by Virgil van Dijk, and the Dutch defender certainly looks up for another battle on Friday.

James Milner and Adam Lallana did not play in the win over United, but the pair could join Jordan Henderson in the first-team action as Jurgen Klopp could mix things up ahead of a crazy run of games.

Naby Keita was also pictured training and the Guinea midfielder is slowly coming into his own in his first season at Anfield.

Keita was great in the win over United but his midfield partner, Fabinho, was the best performer in that win.

James Milner to return? – Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolverhampton Wanderers host the Reds on Friday as we look to extend our lead at the top of the Premier League to four points.

Liverpool come off a couple of huge wins over Napoli and Manchester United but the Wolves will not be easy fodder given their exploits this season.

They have already defeated Chelsea and drawn with Manchester City, so the Reds have to be wary of their opposition.

Liverpool were incredible in the win over United, but Jurgen Klopp could make some changes in the starting XI as we look to keep the players fresh.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is a doubt for the game with Joe Gomez and Joel Matip recovering from injuries, and here is our predicted line-up for Klopp’s men.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Alisson (GK)

The Brazilian made an error in the 3-1 win over United, but that shouldn’t faze him as we look for all three points on Friday.

James Milner (RB)

Nathaniel Clyne did a decent job in defence, but it is unlikely he will start two games in five days for us, and we could see Milner coming into the right-back slot.

Virgil van Dijk (CB)

Possibly the best defender in the world, Van Dijk has barely put a foot wrong at Liverpool and the centre-back needs to be vigil against a crafty Wolves team.

Dejan Lovren

Lovren was barely threatened at the back by United, but the Croatian will face a tougher test at Molineux.

Andy Robertson (LB)

The best left-back in the league should start on Friday as the games keep on coming.

Jordan Henderson (CM)

It was a surprise seeing Henderson not starting against United, but the captain should make a return on Friday.

Fabinho of Liverpool

Fabinho (CM)

The performance against United was possibly Fabinho’s best since joining the Reds, and the Brazilian should continue in the team.

Naby Keita (CAM)

The Guinea midfielder had a great game for us on Sunday and hopefully, plays more down the middle against Wolves.

Xherdan Shaqiri (RAM)

Roberto Firmino ran his socks off against United, and the Brazilian could get a rest with super-sub Shaqiri being the third man in our attack.
