1′ We’re under way at Anfield.

Liverpool lost 1-0 at home against Burnley in the Premier League last season, ending their 68-match unbeaten league run at Anfield. The Clarets last won consecutive away league matches against Liverpool in their first two attempts back in the 1894-95 and 1896-97 seasons.

Burnley have made two changes to their side from their defeat against Brighton. Rodriguez drops to the bench and is replaced in the final third by Barnes. Brownhill slots into the middle of the park to replace Ashley Westwood, who misses out with a toe injury. Burnley are the first Premier League side to name a starting line-up with squad numbers 1-11 since Charlton Athletic’s match against Southampton in the 1998/1999 season.

Elliott makes his first Premier League start for Liverpool this afternoon in the middle of the park.The 18-year-old is one of two changes from the win over Norwich last week. Henderson and Elliott slot into the midfield to replace James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Milner is out with a knock, while Oxlade-Chamberlain is absent to attend the birth of his child. 

BURNLEY SUBS: Wayne Hennessey, Jay Rodriguez, Nathan Collins, Erik Pieters, Will Norris, Phil Bardsley, Bobby Thomas, Lewis Richardson, Owen Dodgson.

BURNLEY (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Matt Lowton, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor; Johann Gudmundsson, Josh Brownhill, Jack Cork, Dwight McNeil; Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes.

LIVERPOOL SUBS: Ibrahima Konata, Thiago, Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez, Adrian, Curtis Jones, Takumi Minamino, Andy Robertson, Caoimhin Kelleher.

LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Konstantinos Tsimikas; Harvey Elliott, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita; Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota.

Burnley began their season with a 2-1 defeat against Brighton and Hove Albion at Turf Moor last week. The Clarets did take the lead in the second minute through James Tarkowski, but second-half efforts from Neal Maupay and Alexis Mac Allister condemned Sean Dyche’s men to an opening-day loss. They face a tough challenge to bounce back this afternoon, but their positive result at Anfield last term will give them hope.

Liverpool kicked off their campaign last week with a comfortable victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road. Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino found the net in a 3-0 win for the Reds. Jurgen Klopp and his team now turn their attention to the Clarets, who defeated them at Anfield last term. Liverpool have the opportunity to avenge their loss and re-establish dominance on home soil, which was an issue last season.

Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Liverpool and Burnley at Anfield.
