Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Burnley

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League tie with Burnley.

Liverpool travel to Burnley on Saturday looking to continue their perfect start to the Premier League season.

Jurgen Klopp's side earned their third win from as many games on Saturday, with Mohamed Salah's brace and Joel Matip's header helping the Merseyside outfit past Arsenal at Anfield.

While Liverpool sit pretty at the top of the table, they are yet to keep a clean sheet in the top flight, with Gunners midfielder Lucas Torreira netting in the second half on Saturday to add to goals from Norwich City's Teemu Pukki and Southampton's Danny Ings earlier in the season.

However, Klopp's side have looked dangerous in attack, with Salah and fellow attackers Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane providing a constant threat going forward in the early weeks of the campaign.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for the Merseyside club.
