A topsy-turvy start to 2017 has left Liverpool in a somewhat vulnerable position on the table. Their title hopes all but gone and the Reds best case scenario for this season would be making the top 4.
Their form has been mixed of late, but a much-needed 3-1 win against Arsenal has once again put them back in the reckoning for the Champions League spots. However, it is against lower placed opposition that the Reds have struggled the most and they have been dealt some bad news in that regard lately.
Roberto Firmino is likely to miss the game due to a thigh problem, with Divock Origi expected to take his place in the starting line-up. A
nd considering this being a game where Origi’s craft as a target man could be much more useful than Firmino’s graft, Liverpool fans are hopeful of securing 3 points at Anfield.

Not a bad thing if Origi starts tomorrow.Firmino has been ineffective against the lesser teams.Origi poses a different type of threat.#LFC.

Origi is what we actually vs burnley. Theyd have had Firmino for breakfast like every bottom half shit we've dropped points against

Firmino missing could actually be an opportunity to play a natural striker (Origi) against a team that will park the bus.

Somehow feel more confident with Origi starting against Burnley than with Firmino

Origi starting in place of Bobby, should've started even without injury. Need the pace and physicality to help break down Burnley

Origi starting tomorrow. Big opportunity for him to show his quality.

Origi starting on Sunday definitely gives us something different against the smaller teams. Could help a lot
