Klopp restored his side to full-strength against the Gunners and was rewarded with the best display of the season so far as the Reds eased to victory.
It would be fair to think that Klopp will trust the same team to deliver again – especially given the fact that the Reds have enjoyed another full week to recover, train and prepare.
An entirely different challenge awaits against Sean Dyche’s side though, and that could see the German make changes for what will be a battle at Turf Moor.
Here is how we think Liverpool’s starting XI could look come Saturday 5.30pm kick-off time.
Unchanged Squad Available
An unchanged squad is therefore at Klopp’s disposal.
And that could be the theme of the German’s selection, with Klopp having stated in his press conference that “this isn’t the moment for a lot of changes.”
Therefore all 11 Reds who started the win over the Gunners look strongly placed to keep their places.
There are options available in all areas for changes should Klopp see fit.
Joe Gomez is the main contender to come into the defence, at either centre-back or right-back.
Liverpool’s XI vs. The Clarets
After such a great result and performance against Arsenal, it’s difficult to see where and even why Klopp would make changes.
When you also consider Klopp’s words and that the Reds have enjoyed another full week of precious training time, an unchanged lineup featuring makes even more sense.
It wouldn’t at all be a surprise therefore to see those who delivered the performance of the season so far handed the chance to produce the goods again.
A tough, physical battle awaits against a team who will play direct football and attempt to turn the game into a scrap to prevent the Reds finding rhythm.
So Klopp – who said he is considering “a couple of really small changes” – could adapt his team slightly to cater for the inevitable war, adding extra robustness to the side.
One such change could see Gomez brought in at right-back for Alexander-Arnold to provide more of a defensive presence on return to the scene of his unfortunate injury last season.
Another switch could come in midfield.
It would be nice to see Oxlade-Chamberlain enter to provide attacking force from the middle of the park, but Klopp may take caution with him in what will be a hard-fought contest.
The more likely switch may be Milner replacing Wijnaldum, with Klopp having regularly called upon the vice-captain’s battling spirit and reliability in fixtures of this type.
The first lineup is currently Liverpool’s strongest available and sticking with that in-form XI to take the game to the home side would be most welcome.
Even if changes are made, the Reds still boast more than enough quality to claim another three points and ensure the 100 per-cent winning start is maintained going into the international break.
