Liverpool Legend Predicts Central Defensive Pairing Jurgen Klopp Will Pick vs Burnley

Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho offer Jurgen Klopp an incredibly varied front line, though while the Reds' emphasis on the collective is widely celebrated, they seem nearly too reliant on each other.

It is impossible to know which Liverpool will turn up against Burnley at the weekend, as Klopp scratches his head at a mixture of alarming defensive inconsistency and attacking brilliance. "I am really excited and looking forward to the challenge".

"A hundred points sounds like a lot, but it could have been quicker", Klopp said.

If there is any encouragement for the Clarets, it will come from Liverpool's own record against teams in the lower half of the table.

Burnley's last win at Anfield was in September 1974 (1-0).

"People say I don't have a Plan B or whatever", the German said, according to the Liverpool Echo. We didn't know what was going to happen, but it looks a good decision now as he's still available. My job is I have to help them find the right decisions more easily.

After an absolutely horrendous month of January which saw Liverpool struggle in the Premier League and get eliminated from both domestic cup competitions, the Reds have bounced back and are again in contention for the top four.

The Clarets are Liverpool's next opponents on a weekend that could see them extend their lead over Arsenal and United, who are both in FA Cuip quarter-final action and now trail Klopp's men in the race for the top four. It's certainly good for myself and the staff to realise that we do work with these players and they do develop and improve.

"In this moment I'm not sure we will win against Burnley but I'm quite optimistic".

A Liverpool win would equal their tally of 16 league victories for last season.

Klopp admitted that defeat at Turf Moor on the second weekend of the season remains a source of frustration for him.

A Premier League victor, Dzeko is back in the goals over in Serie A, bagging a rather impressive 30 in the Italian capital so far this season. They've had a few ups and downs, but we're a team who were considered to have no chance, to be where we are, it's more about the whole season. Use the filter system to refine which games you should bet on and view the analysis that mathematical system produces to give you the best chance of making money from the Liverpool vs Burnley game. We don't concentrate only on set-pieces, counter-pressing - it is an all-around challenge. We need to be ready.

Klopp clearly feels that his players are feeling the pressure from the expectations of the fans at Anfield.
