Liverpool v Burnley preview

Patrice Evra controversy: Manchester United legend faces backlash

Gerrard is back in training after a hamstring injury but is unlikely to feature as Brendan Rodgers sticks with his winning formula.

Winger Jordon Ibe is expected to be sidelined until the end of the month with the knee injury suffered in the Europa League loss at Besiktas last week.

Central defender Mamadou Sakho is close to a return after a hip injury and full-back Glen Johnson should be back in contention after illness.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is set to have the same squad of players for the trip to Merseyside??as he did??for the previous fixture.

The Clarets came through the 1-0 home defeat to Swansea on Saturday without??picking up any significant knocks.

They remain without Matthew Taylor, who is working on his fitness as he??continues his recovery from Achilles surgery, as well as Dean Marney and Kevin Long, both out for the rest of the season due to cruciate ligament damage.
