Adam Lallana's 'exceptional' levels in training this week earned the Liverpool midfielder a start in the Premier League meeting with Burnley.

The No.20 comes into the XI, as does Roberto Firmino, as Jürgen Klopp makes just two changes from the goalless draw against Everton last weekend.

Asked for the thinking behind naming Lallana in his line-up, the manager told BT Sport: “We had a complete training week and actually that’s how it is.

“If you have five sessions a week, everybody can show up and Adam was exceptional during the week. So, in a situation where you think a little bit how you can adjust one or two things, it’s smart.

“He trained well for a while already but this week was especially well – that’s the reason why he starts.”
