Ahead of matchweek 35 in the Premier League, we take a look at some of the stats surrounding the upcoming fixtures

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson's season has been ended by a knee injury and he will not play against Burnley on Saturday.

The England midfielder was forced off late in Wednesday's win over Brighton and scans have revealed damage to the left knee which will sideline him for a few weeks.

Defender Dejan Lovren returns after missing the last three matches with a knock.

Burnley have no fresh injury concerns for Saturday's trip to Anfield.

Ashley Barnes (hernia), Ben Mee (thigh) and Matt Lowton (foot) remain absent for Sean Dyche's men.

Jack Cork is another out and the Burnley boss says it looks like the midfielder's ankle issue will require surgery.

Charlie's prediction

Burnley squeezed into the threat of Europe again with a great result at West Ham. They were fortunate enough to get a draw with Sheffield United but dug their heels in and picked up a point in the end when they were in front.

James Tarkowski's tackle was a red and it was not VAR's fault, it was the referee who got it wrong on that occasion. Despite the fact Ben Mee has been missing, Burnley have still done well without him. You can get at them though.

In terms of Liverpool, Sadio Mane got a rest and Roberto Firmino looks back to his bright self. Mohamed Salah was back in the goals. It will keep them on their toes, and even the normal starting line-up will be itching to start - Jordan Henderson could be out, so Nabi Keita may get a run, and Georginio Wijnaldum is always a threat.

No matter which full-backs Jurgen Klopp puts in, Liverpool will be dangerous. He could put Neco Williams in, but I always think he is tempted to put an extra few in, but because of the record everyone says he is going for, he may not.

I do not think it is that important to them, and this result will put them on track to beat it, but I think Klopp is caught in between. Does he go with the youngsters or does he go for the points total? The reality is that Curtis Jones scored last week and Takumi Minamino could still get game-time too, but I see Liverpool being fairly comfortable here.

CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (6/1 with Sky Bet)

Opta stats

  • Liverpool have won 82% of their Premier League games against Burnley (9/11), their best winning ratio against a side they've faced at least 10 times in the competition.

  • Victory here will see Liverpool equal the record for most home wins in a single Premier League campaign (18), while it will also put them a step closer to becoming just the second team in top-flight history to win 100% of their home games in a single season, after Sunderland in 1891-92 (13/13).
  • Burnley have won 14 Premier League games this season, equalling their best season for wins in the competition in 2017-18. They last won more in a top-flight season in 1974-75, winning 17 on their way to finishing 10th.
