Confirmed: Liverpool v Burnley line-ups, Sturridge starts, teenager on bench

Liverpool Anfield Road Paisley Gateway 2

Liverpool host Burnley in a midweek Premier League clash.

Liverpool host Burnley in a clash of two sides at opposite ends of the Premier League table.

The Reds are in excellent form, unbeaten in the league in 2015, climbing back to within just two points of the Champions League qualification places.

They can continue to put pressure on their rivals with a win, and with Manchester United away at Newcastle this evening, they could yet overhaul the Red Devils.

In their path are relegation threatened Burnley, who earned an impressive 1-1 draw away to Chelsea a fortnight ago.

Sean Dyche's side still remain in the relegation zone, and need to pick up points after seeing competitors Aston Villa beat West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday evening.

Here is a look at how the two teams line-up...
Getting a win away to Liverpool will be tough. The Reds have not lost any of their last eight league matches at Anfield, while Burnley haven't won any of their previous seven games on the road.
