Despite the injuries, Brendan Rodgers’ men will still back themselves to overcome a team that was looking fairly uninspiring even before the heavy defeat against Spurs.
Indeed, the Clarets have won just once in eight matches in all competitions and struggled in their last home game to claim a point against a West Brom team that was reduced to 10 men after just half an hour.
With just five goals to their name in those games – having failed to score in five – the hosts will be up against it to break down an opponent that has conceded only five times in their last eight on the road.
