Liverpool vs Burnley LIVE: Latest score, goals and updates from Premier League fixture tonight

Robertson and Alexander-Arnold – Liverpool’s dynamic full-backs

Liverpool are likely to welcome Joel Matip back to the side after he missed out against Man United, meaning Jordan Henderson will potentially move back to his favoured position in midfield after being used in defence last time out, despite Xherdan Shaqiri’s good performance at the weekend. While Diogo Jota is still out injured, Jurgen Klopp will likely keep Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane up front. Burnley, meanwhile, will be relying on their defence to keep the Reds out and Charlie Taylor could come into the starting line-up. Bailey Peacock-Farrell is out due to illness, while Dwight McNeil will be pushing for a start after missing the last two games. Follow all the build-up, live action and post-match reaction below.

50 mins: Charlie Taylor clears a ball on the left side of the pitch for Burnley and goes down.  He’s just come back from a hamstring injury and looks like he’s tweaked it. The physios come on to see to him but he won’t be continuing. Erik Pieters comes on to replace him. Early blow for Burnley.

Here we go, there’s been some funny business. Nick Pope kicked the ball up the pitch and the whistle went for half time. Fabinho ran into Ashley Barnes and knocked him over. Everyone reacted and squared up to each other, Fabinho is shown a yellow card. All after the whistle went for half time. VAR got involved as well but no further punishment was required.
