Divock Origi will be flanked by Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane in attack on Sunday after Roberto Firmino was unable to make the matchday squad for Burnley’s visit.

Divock Origi makes his seventh Premier League start of the season in his stead, while Daniel Sturridge continues to deal with repeated injury issues. The Belgian’s most prolific form has come in the League Cup, where he fashioned a goal every 119 minutes until the semi-final elimination to Southampton.
The lineup is otherwise unchanged from the XI which defeated Arsenal, but there are notable spots on the bench for Dejan Lovren and youngster Joe Gomez.
Burnley hasn’t won since January, with Sean Dyche welcoming Tom Heaton, Scott Arfield, and Ashley Barnes back into the fold in place of the benched trio of Paul Robinson, Robbie Brady, and Sam Vokes.
