Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on playing the "smaller" sides: "People say I don't have a Plan B or whatever". "I know we don't have to doubt the attitude, and the kind of attitude we usually are looking for was here against Arsenal; they were really motivated and you can not play like this if you have any issues". We have to prove it on the pitch. Have to cover specific spaces and make the right decisions.

Burnley will also glean some confidence from their last encounter with Liverpool in the second week of the season when they collected a 2-0 win at Turf Moor despite conceding just over 80 percent of possession.

Key battle will be between Liverpool's attack, the most lethal attack of the league, and Burnley's defense led by Tom Heaton, league's best goalkeeper based strictly on the SofaScore rating (7.05).

Liverpool v Burnley was originally scheduled to be the first game at Anfield with the new Main Stand - however due to a delay in completion the clubs switched the games around so that the reds travelled to Turf Moor back in August.

Speaking about Klopp's future earlier this month, Klopp said: "I have no idea what happens in the summer".

It is not only Daniel but a lot of players. Before the Arsenal game the mood here was quite optimistic but I think a lot of people thought if we lose then we have real problems.

Flanagan became the local hero, the old fashioned full-back with that added touch of quality on the ball, the Scouser who could put in the crunching tackles.

They have only won three of their last 13 matches in all competitions.

Liverpool are fourth in the league table with 52 points, with Arsenal two points behind them in fifth with a game in hand.

Burnley, along with Hull, were the last team to remain winless in their opening 14 away matches of a Premier League season, in 2009-10.
