The Reds opened their Champions League campaign with a 2-2 draw on Wednesday night, although a series of defensive errors - coupled with a missed penalty from Roberto Firmino - gifted the Spanish club a crucial point at Anfield.

There will be other games, like the last one in the Champions League, where Loris Karius plays.

Phillip Couthino could return to the starting line up for the first time this season. I don't think I had any influence on the decision of the ref (to send him to the stands).

Burnley opened the season with a shock win at Chelsea, and following that, they lost to West Brom at home.

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson believes Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp needs more time to adjust to the demands of the Premier League.

"I still think we could have strengthened, without a doubt", Thompson told Sky Sports earlier this week.

The Reds would be without Sadio Mane, who picked up a red card in the defeat at City.

Liverpool created plenty of chances against Sevilla but were guilty of poor finishing and Klopp said his players must be more clinical against Burnley.

Jurgen Klopp's side were impressive going forward against Sevilla, but they were made to pay for wasting their opportunities in the end. For the second consecutive game, they have leaked more goals than what they should have - 2 goals vs xG of 1.32.

"In an ideal world we (would) have 11 players play the whole season but it is not an ideal world", he said.

Oxlade-Chamberlain, meanwhile, is also no stranger to playing on the wing of a front three and would be relishing the chance to be part of that dynamic attack in his first start since his £35m move from Arsenal on deadline day.

"Obviously the crowd needs to get a little bit used to his style of play but this is modern football; he takes the ball and he has cool build-up".

"It is really interesting to play them because they are always on a really high level since I've been in the league". To follow it up Burnley took a point from Tottenham in Wembley and then won a nailbiter 1-0 against Palace last weekend.
