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 clash with Burnley at Anfield.

Record-chasing champions Liverpool will resume their bid for an unprecedented points haul when they host Burnley at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp's side need just three more wins from their final four games to surpass the 100-point record held by Manchester City, in addition to securing the most wins in a season and the biggest title-winning margin.

Liverpool are also on course to become the first team in Premier League history to win all of their home games in a single campaign, having come out on top in all 17 so far this season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up their latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's match.
