Liverpool have been set back in their mission to secure a 100-point season following their draw against Burnley.
The Clarets will be thrilled to come away with a point, but Jurgen Klopp’s side must now bank seven points out of their remaining three fixtures. They will resume their Premier League run against Arsenal at the Emirates, but a loss will cost them a potential centurion status.
Will Mohamed Salah win this season's Golden Boot?
Transfer Tavern has predicted how the title winners might set up against the Gunners, including three changes from their last time out…
Although Neco Williams put in a solid shift against Burnley, it’s likely Klopp may want to field his usual, senior back four when they face Arsenal. Trent Alexander-Arnold was benched in favour of the rising youngster, which could have put him in a mindset to return to pitch and show why he shouldn’t be dropped again. Reds fans will hope he can contribute to a clean sheet against a side eager to climb up the table.
Curtis Jones enjoyed his first Premier League start at the weekend, but along with midfield teammate, £36m-valued Gini Wijnaldum, neither set the match alight with their performances (via Sofascore). The return of Naby Keita, who has assisted twice since the restart, and the attacking flair of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could make for an exciting display.
Klopp’s front three will more than likely remain the same, with goals a must and Mohamed Salah also bidding for the Golden Boot. As it stands, he is on 19 goals for the season with Jamie Vardy extending his lead on 23 (via BBC Sport). The Egyptian will hoping for maximum service from the midfield so he can close the gap between him and Leicester’s talisman.
