Roberto Firmino of Liverpool

Liverpool showed their grit and determination against Burnley as we came from a goal down in the second half to win 3-1.

James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri got the goals for us as Jurgen Klopp rotated his side around big time.

Divock Origi, Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno started for the Reds, and we play Bournemouth on Saturday.

Liverpool could go on top of the Premier League on Saturday as City play after us, and here is our predicted line-up for the Reds.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Alisson (GK)

The Brazilian was excellent in our win over Burnley and would be crucial to our chances of winning at Bournemouth.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

Joe Gomez’s injury means Trent should start for us and needs to have a quality game.

Joel Matip (CB)

The Cameroon defender started in our previous clash and should keep his place in the team unless Dejan Lovren recovers.

Virgil van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk (CB)

Van Dijk got an assist to his name that he can talk about in our win over Burnley, and the Dutch defender should start for us on Saturday.

Andy Robertson (LB)

Robertson missed the clash against Burnley with a dead-leg, and hopefully, he recovers for Saturday’s game.

Fabinho (CM)

The Brazilian should see some action for Liverpool as we look to pick up all three points against Bournemouth.

Jordan Henderson (CM)

The captain was back in the team after serving his Merseyside derby suspension, and hopefully, he puts up a quality showing after struggling in the first half against Burnley.

Xherdan Shaqiri (LAM)

Shaqiri didn’t really do anything worth noting in the first half against Burnley, but he should get another start as Sadio Mane recovers from injury.

Naby Keita (CAM)

Keita was excellent in the Burnley win, and the Guinea midfielder should keep his place in Liverpool’s starting XI.

Mohamed Salah celebrates against Watford

Mohamed Salah (RAM)

Salah was a sub in the 3-1 win over the Clarets and should start against the Cherries on Saturday.
