Trent Alexander-Arnold is benched while Curtis Jones makes his first Premier League start as Liverpool prepare to take on Burnley at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp has made five changes to the side that started in the 3-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion earlier this week as Liverpool get set to lock horns with Burnley at Anfield. There is no replacing Alisson in goal, though, with Adrian being his deputy again.
The first change comes in the back-line, with Trent Alexander-Arnold being given a breather. Alexander-Arnold is replaced by Andrew Robertson, who slots into the left-back slot, with Neco Williams moving to the opposite flank. Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk pair up at the heart of the Liverpool defence.

Two further shuffles have been made in midfield, with one of them being forced due to Jordan Henderson’s season-ending injury. Henderson is replaced by Curtis Jones, who makes his first Premier League start today against Burnley. Jones will have Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum for company in the middle of the park.
Up ahead in attack, the final changes in the starting lineup see Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino return. Mane replaces Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and will line up on the left flank, while Firmino will occupy the central position. Mohamed Salah is the final man in the front trio.
Liverpool Starting Lineup: Alisson, Williams, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Jones, Mane, Salah, Firmino
