Liverpool duo Alisson Becker and Naby Keita are also absent again.

Burnley will be without Johann Berg Gudmundsson when Liverpool visit Turf Moor at Saturday teatime.

The Iceland winger suffered a calf injury midway through the second half of last weekend's 1-1 draw at Wolves and was withdrawn. Manager Sean Dyche is confident he will be available after the international break.

Fellow winger Robbie Brady stepped up his recovery from a fractured rib with a 75-minute run-out for the under-23s earlier this week although he is unlikely to be in contention to face the European champions, while midfielder Steven Defour remains a long-term absentee.

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker will again be missing as he recovers from a calf injury.

Midfielder Naby Keita, who has not played since the Community Shield because of a hip/groin injury, is also absent.

Manager Jurgen Klopp is likely to make changes to his midfield having started with Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson last weekend, with James Milner an option.

Provisional Burnley squad: Pope, Hart, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Gibson, Bardsley, Pieters, Long, Cork, Drinkwater, Hendrick, Westwood, McNeil, Lennon, Barnes, Wood, Rodriguez, Vydra, Peacock-Farrell.

Liverpool provisional squad: Adrian, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Milner, Fabinho, Salah, Firmino, Mane, Kelleher, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Origi.
