Confirmed Teams: Klopp finally dumps £40k-a-week star; 'amazing' £30m attacker returns'; Liverpool disappointment for Mane

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has named a very strong team for this afternoon's clash with Premier League new boys Burnley.

FULL TEAM: Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Klavan, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Firmino, Coutinho, Sturridge

SUBS: Manninger, Can, Origi, Matip, Moreno, Stewart, Grujic

* As expected, Mane misses out with a shoulder injury, but Sturridge comes into the team for his first appearance of the season. Not a bad player to be able to call upon ;-)

* Moreno is deservedly dumped on the bench, with Milner coming in to replace him. With any luck, this will lead to increased defensive solidity down the left.

* Origi and Can have to make do with bench duty again, which Wijnaldum and Hendo will have to cover midfield defensive duties yet again.

Probable formation:

-------------- Mignolet
Clyne --- Lovren -- Klavan --- Milner
------- Wijnaldum - Hendo
Lallana ----- Firmino --- Coutinho
------------- Sturridge

In my view, it makes more sense to play Milner at right-back, with Clyne covering on the left.

* Moreno: Reportedly on £40k-a-week. Sturridge hailed as 'amazing' by Lucas.

Bev is having her bone marrow transplant today (Wed19th April). It's a big operation, and she'll be on life support for the duration. The recovery process is going to be very tough and unfortunately carries a great deal of risk with regards to infection, which could be life threatening due to the process requiring her immune system to have been purposefully wiped out beforehand (so that it doesn't f!ght against/reject the transplant). Sadly, the preparation treatment has adversely affected her heart as well and currently it is beating much lower than it should be so we have to hope that soon starts to recover as well. More HERE.
