Picking the Best Potential Burnley Lineup to Face Liverpool on Wednesday

Burnley welcome Liverpool to Turf Moor on Wednesday looking to halt their alarming slide down the Premier League table.


Following Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, Sean Dyche's Clarets find themselves 19th and sit one point off bottom place Fulham as they look to avoid a relegation scrap.


Here's how they could lineup.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Joe Hart (GK) - Despite conceding 29 goals, the former Manchester City stopper has made a number of crucial saves to keep his side in matches this term, including against Palace last time out.


Matthew Lowton (RB) - Often overun, Lowton will have to tread carefully against the Reds' attacking trio.


James Tarkowski (CB) - Burnley's star man last season, Tarkowski's return could be crucial if they're to gain anything from the game.


Ben Mee (CB) - Scorer of an own goal in their defeat to Newcastle last Monday, Mee will be hoping for better fortunes on Wednesday.


Charlie Taylor (LB) - Attack-minded, but the former Leeds United defender may be limited to going forward...his next opponent is Mohamed Salah.

2. Midfielders

Robbie Brady (RM) - After coming off the bench last time out, Brady will be desperate for a run under Dyche following a 10 month injury lay-off. His defensive awareness could be preferred to Aaron Lennon's.


Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson (LM) - With two goals and four assists, the versatile Icelandic midfielder offers another dimension. 


Jack Cork (CM) - Tough tackling Cork is set to put his wits up against one of the most experienced players on the pitch - James Milner.


Steven Defour (CM) - Sorely missed in the opening two months, the midfield engine could make his seventh consecutive league start.

3. Forwards

Sam Vokes (ST) - An aerial threat, the Welsh striker is one goal away from equalling his tally for the whole of last season having netted against Newcastle.


Chris Wood (ST)  - Scored an impressive 10 goals in 24 games last season, but has found the net just once this term - that will have to change against the division's meanest defence.
