Liverpool rosters for Burnley as James Milner decision is made and Xherdan Shaqiri could play a role – fr


“Wijnaldum recalled while the reds go as strong as possible”
Paul Gorst: The permutations from the last day may be enough to give you a headache, but they won’t play right if Liverpool don’t win tonight.

And given how this season has unfolded, you would be naive to rule out a late sting in the tail.

Jurgen Klopp will therefore have to go as hard as he can tonight and hope that 10,000 fans can more than play their part on Sunday at home at Crystal Palace.

In goal it’s Liverpool’s best new target man, Alisson Becker.

Trent Alexander-Arnold in continuous form on the right with Andy Robertson on the left. The problem is still the lack of center-backs, so Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams will be named full-back again.

This week’s Wednesday-Sunday schedule should provide enough gap between games for enough rest, so I remember Gini Wijnaldum for Curtis Jones.

The options are thinning as well, so it’s the same front three as Sunday at West Brom with Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi in reserve. Hopefully Diogo Jota’s “little luck” for Sunday increases as the week goes on.

My team (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, R Williams, Robertson; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Thiago; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

“Milner for a us if necessary”

Ian Doyle: Forget about all the ifs, but and don’t bother.

All that matters for Liverpool tonight is that they beat Burnley to move into the top four.

They may worry about the permutations of the last day once they have eliminated this game.

Not that it’s easy. And not that Jurgen Klopp has a lot of possibilities for change.

In fact, there is only one area of ​​the squad where he can reasonably envision rotation: the midfielder.

James Milner has to come in if he’s available, his us if needed against a Burnley side who would love to annoy the Reds.

Curtis Jones is the one to give way, with him, Gini Wijnaldum, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at least offering some real options off the bench if things don’t go as planned.

Everybody is the same.

Almost there, people.

My team (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, R Williams, Robertson; Fabinho, Milner, Thiago; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

‘Wijnaldum and the rest choose themselves’

Sean Bradbury: Reds big red Jim Beglin jokingly tweeted this afternoon that it could be Alisson, Adrian and Kelleher in front of Burnley.

As tempting as it sounds with this dangerous trio, it’s a straightforward selection for me tonight.

The back line is chosen in the continued absence of Ozan Kabak and others.

Gini Wijnaldum returns to midfield in place of Curtis Jones.

And the usual suspects take their positions in attack.

I quite appreciate Xherdan Shaqiri for a cameo role from the bench tonight too.

Hopefully no goalkeeper is forced to make a foray and save the day this time around …

My team (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, R Williams, Robertson; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Thiago; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
