Brazilian to miss Burnley clash: Dent to Liverpool's top four hopes?

Brazilian to miss Burnley clash: Dent to Liverpool's top four hopes?

Liverpool beat Burnley 2-1 at Anfield to win their second Premier League game in a row following last weeks victory over Arsenal.

Liverpool can move to within a point of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the top-four race as Spurs host Millwall in the FA Cup quarter-final at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp savoured the unfamiliar taste of winning ugly after his team fought back against Burnley to boost their prospects of finishing in the top four of the Premier League.

Liverpool were restricted to potshots, just like in the Clarets' 2-0 home success against the Reds at Turf Moor in August, but this time Can picked out the bottom corner to win the points for his side. That said, Burnley have been dire away from Turf Moor, and if Liverpool are to secure a Champions League spot for the following season, they will have to prove that they can handle sides that prioritize maximizing frustration over maximizing attractive football.

Dyche said: "It was a good performance, a solid performance, but unfortunately it can sound like a broken record somewhat, I made it clear early season many times, I didn't think we deserved anything on the road, but latterly we have". New customers only. T&Cs apply. "Even when they have lost, it's been close games".

Daniel Sturridge is ruled out with a hip injury, while Roberto Firminho and Dejan Lovren are doubts.

But he was not alone as the team looked devoid of ideas until Wijnaldum's intervention, the Dutchman extending his remarkable run of having scored all his Premier League goals at home (five for Liverpool, 11 for Newcastle).

Klopp provided an update on the fitness of a key quartet, as he prepares his Liverpool side to take on Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

Sam Vokes gave the Clarets the lead only two minutes into the game with a superb finish to put the Reds on the back foot from the start.

The German added: "We can't just say we can only concentrate on counter attacks, set-pieces, whatever". We will try all we can.

Liverpool might not have had a good 2017, losing a number of matches, and their results against weaker opposition have been a worry.

Liverpool comes into this match after beating Arsenal, 3-1, which would be more impressive if the Gunners hadn't already self-destructed. If not, Divock Origi will be eager to impress Klopp.

"In this moment I am not sure we will win against Burnley but I am quite optimistic because I know about the boys".

"We need to feel free for playing football and we have had good sessions this week".
