Liverpool comes from behind to Burnley, go point behind Manchester City

"It may be one of the greatest ever seasons of Liverpool and they may not get over the line".

Liverpool were now firmly in control, clicking through the gears and placing the Burnley defence under increasing pressure before Mane shot them into the first lead of the afternoon shortly before the half hour.

"I don't think anyone at the Premier League thinks about that". He mentioned that the Reds have had ample training this week in his press conference and we can be sure that a lot of that training time would have been devoted to ensuring that a collective attacking failure does not repeat at least for the rest of the season.

Burnley are slightly better off but at the other end of the table.

The Clarets were understandably unwilling to lose one of their key players in the heart of a relegation battle, although they have since climbed out of the drop zone. It affected him. With the line-up we had and system-wise, it wasn't hard but we have to change a little bit if Shaq is playing. That would require Burnley to play aggressively on Sunday with an aim to leave Anfield with at least a point or three.

While the German Champions played Wolfsburg at home in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon, the Premier League has hardly given the Merseyside club a helping hand, given that the game with Burnley was moved back for live TV coverage on BT Sport in January, when the Champions League dates would already have been known. Two goals apiece from Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané made it nine in two home league games for Liverpool and 36 Premier League games unbeaten at Anfield.

Tadic won the award ahead of the trio of Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United), Moussa Marega (FC Porto) and Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur).

"So if you put the two in 10, absolutely terrific, the points return in those games, 18 points - almost two a game in the Premier League is really good".

Steven Gerrard says the "open wound" created by Liverpool's failure to win the Premier League in 2014 will not be healed even if Jurgen Klopp ends their 29-year wait for the title this season. He had a little muscle issue, but there are still two days to go until the game. "He's fully fit now". The Brazilian forward has scored 9 and assisted 4 in 28 appearances over 2,108 minutes. That is why we do it a bit different this time and we train Tuesday morning here.

He added: "There is not so much a nervous tension, just eagerness to get it going".

For the away side, keep an eye out on Chris Wood who might have the support of Ashley Barnes up top. Barnes has scored 9 and assisted 2 goals over 28 appearances (1,587 minutes). No one in the Premier League is a poor side and you have to earn the right, I know that and the players know that. His xGchain90 of 0.68 also indicates that his build-up play is also effective.

Joe Gomez, out since December with a fractured leg, is likely to return after the global break at the end of this month while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, sidelined since April by a serious knee injury sustained in the Champions League semi-finals to Roma last-season, made his playing comeback for the under-23s at Derby on Friday despite hobbling off after 40 minutes clutching his hamstring.

The Reds might be without James Milner who has a muscle issue.

For Burnley, Steven Defour underwent surgery on his calf injury, and won't be available for selection.

Pep Guardiola's side eased to a 3-1 victory over Watford the previous day to turn up the heat on Liverpool, who had drawn four of their previous six league matches.

"Because it's important for us here too, if they win the match, they would go back to the first place, and we did not want that". But we always felt we could win.
