The end of 2023 is near and Liverpool have two more fixtures before the New Year is ushered in.
One Liverpool player runs the risk of being unable to feature against Burnley, however, with Nunez one booking away from a one-match suspension.
The Uruguayan picked up a needless fourth yellow card of the Premier League campaign in Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Man United – his third in the last five games – and another against Arsenal would rule him out of the next game.
After that, with 19 games played in the Premier League, players can no longer accrue a one-match suspension for five yellow cards.

The pair are currently on three yellow cards, with no other Liverpool player at risk before the cut-off.
