Liverpool put the unpleasant memories of their disappointing campaign last season behind them with a convincing victory away at Norwich last weekend. After a slow start, the Reds ran out 0-3 victors with goals coming from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and, of course, Mohammed Salah. 

This weekend, Liverpool will be boosted by the return of influential captain Jordan Henderson, but first choice left-back Andy Robertson is still injured, so Kostas Tsimikas keeps his starting place. 

Elsewhere, Sadio Mane, Jota and Salah start up front, while exciting teenage prospect Harvey Elliott comes into midfield for his Premier League debut.

Meanwhile, Burnley will be looking to bounce back from a demoralizing opening day defeat to Brighton. They took the lead within two minutes, but conceded two goals in five minutes in the second half, condemning them to a 1-2 loss.

Taking even a point away from Anfield is a tough task, but Burnley do have form in this area. Last season they shocked the footballing world by ending Liverpool's 68-game unbeaten at home streak in the EPL with a 1-0 victory on Merseyside. Manager Sean Dyche makes two changes as he attempts to repeat that feat, bringing in Josh Brownhill and Ashley Barnes in place of Jay Rodriguez and Ashley Westwood.

Here's how they line up:

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Henderson, Keita, Mane, Jota, Elliott, Salah.

Substitutes: Adrian, Kelleher, Konate, Thiago, Firmino, Gomez, Jones, Minamino, Robertson.

Burnley: Pope, Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Taylor, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, Cork, McNeil, Barnes, Wood.

Substitutes: Hennessey, Norris, Rodriguez, Collins, Pieters, Bardsley, Thomas, Richardson, Dodgson.
