With the Reds now down in 7th in the league table, nothing short of a victory is required.
The last time Liverpool went to Burnley however, they were subjected to a 1-0 defeat in an FA Cup tie back in 2005. Reds defender Djimi Traore scored an awful own goal that day to gift the game to the hosts.
Yossi Benayoun bagged a hat-trick and Dirk Kuyt scored the other in the reverse of this fixture earlier this season, with Liverpool running out 4-0 winners at Anfield after a shakey start to the season.
Maxi Rodriguez is eligable to play again after being cup-tied of Thursday’s Europea League meeting with Atletico Madrid, although Rafa Benitez is without Fernando Torres, Martin Skrtel, Emiliano Insua and Fabio Aurelio.
However, Rafa Benitez will be cautious (there’s a surprise) in that Liverpool have the second leg of their Europa League semi-final tie with Atletico Madrid on Thursday night at Anfield.
Kick-off at Turf Moor is 3pm.
