Liverpool's defence has been unbreachable of late, an early Burnley goal could unsettle the Anfield faithful. Klopp has, however, moved to ease any concerns that they are no longer part of his plans, insisting that he selects his team based on what's required for the next opponent in question. The goalless game means that for the first time since 7 December Liverpool are off the top having played the same number of matches. Van Dijk, who now earns around £125k-a-week, could receive an upfront loyalty bonus worth £5 million, while he is set to receive a further £4 million when he reaches 150 games for the Reds.

"So we have to take the belief we have shown in those games into this one". He had a little muscle issue, but there are still two days to go until the game.

Liverpool are back in action on Sunday when they play host to Burnley, with it possible that City will have edged further clear by then as they are due to face Watford on Saturday. This is second-best after Salah but given the Egyptian's dip in form, Klopp will look for others to pitch in, both in the build-up, as well as in the attack and Firmino is ideal for both.

"I think you'd have to say that Aguero has made much more of an impact against the top-six teams, but there's no doubt Salah is one of the best players in the Premier League".

- Liverpool's tally of 73 points from their opening 30 league games this season is their joint-best ever total at this stage of a league campaign (adjusting to three points for a win), level with the 1904-1905 second tier season and 1987-1988 in the top-flight. Barnes has scored 9 and assisted 2 goals over 28 appearances (1,587 minutes). His xGchain90 of 0.68 also indicates that his build-up play is also effective.


The Reds might be without James Milner who has a muscle issue. That will possibly allow either Naby Keita or Xherdan Shaqiri to come back to the starting XI.

"I thought Liverpool were four or five years behind Manchester City".

Prior to losing each of their last two games, the Clarets were on an eight-match unbeaten run in the Premier League which included drawing 2-2 at Old Trafford - where they were 2-0 up - on January 29 and beating Spurs 2-1 at home two weeks ago. We can hopefully give them performances that they can go home and talk about the next day.

"If you have chances in a game, you want to score", he told a news conference ahead of the clash with Burnley.
