Goal Scorer:

Burnley boss Kompany was boosted by the return of left-back Charlie Taylor for the beating of Fulham, but doubts persist over all of Johann Berg Gudmundsson (unspecified), Jack Cork (calf) and Aaron Ramsey (knee), who will require late fitness tests.

Luca Koleosho is a definite absentee as he works his way back from knee surgery, but Odobert's man-of-the-match display at Craven Cottage suggests that Kompany will be in safe hands while the former spends months in the treatment room.

Jacob Bruun Larsen only lasted until half time against Fulham, being replaced by Mike Tresor for the second half in a tactical change, and Kompany should certainly consider such a switch from the first whistle on Boxing Day.

The Clarets did not pick up any fresh concerns over the weekend, which is more than can be said for Liverpool, who witnessed Kostas Tsimikas wipe out Jurgen Klopp as he was inadvertently shoved into the German's path after losing a touchline tussle with Bukayo Saka.

Burnley possible starting lineup:
Trafford; Vitinho, O'Shea, Beyer, Taylor; Tresor, Berge, Brownhill, Odobert; Foster, Amdouni
Klopp was unharmed in the incident, but he confirmed after the game that Tsimikas sustained a broken collarbone and would be out for a lengthy period of time, leaving the Reds without a recognised senior left-back as Andrew Robertson also recovers from a shoulder operation.

With Tsimikas and Robertson unavailable, Joe Gomez ought to hold the fort at left-back for the time being, while Luis Diaz also took a blow to the knee in the draw with Arsenal but should be passed fit to make the squad on Boxing Day.

However, all of Joel Matip (knee), Ben Doak (knee), Alexis Mac Allister (knee), Diogo Jota (muscle), Stefan Bajcetic (calf) and Thiago Alcantara (hip) are out of contention and will not return until various points in 2024.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Quansah, Van Dijk, Gomez; Szoboszlai, Endo, Gravenberch; Salah, Gakpo, Nunez
Prediction: Burnley 0-2 Liverpool
