Brad Jones in goal, as Balotelli likely on bench against Burnely – Liverpool team news

Following a 2-2 draw with Arsenal in the league, Brendan Rodgers’ men head into the game against the relegation candidates looking to bag all three points

The Reds Manager, Brendan Rodgers is expected to go with Brad Jones in goal, the Australian who warned Simon Mingolet that he would not be giving up his place easily.

A back three with Mamadou Sakho, Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure starting should be the order of the day as Rodgers could name an unchanged 3-4-3 setup like the Arsenal game.

Brazilian Lucas Leiva will keep his place in front of the back three while Steven Gerrard will be given the license to control the tempo of the game having Jordan Henderson and the bright Lazar Markovic as his partners in crime.

Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling should complete the front three who will look to take the game to the Burnely defense and run on the shoulders of the last defenders in the final third.

Liverpool however would welcome back Mario Balotelli after his one game suspension but the Italian is likely to start the game from the bench. Fabio Borini however will miss out after two picking two yellow cards in a crazy 10 minutes cameo against Arsenal.
