Liverpool are closing in on the record Premier League points tally and need three wins from their final four games to beat Man City’s 100 points set two seasons ago.

Sean Dyche’s in-form Burnley, who have taken 10 points since the Premier League restart, pose a difficult test at Anfield on Saturday – live on talkSPORT at 3pm.

Liverpool have already wrapped up the title and on 92 points are eight points behind that 100 point record.

Jurgen Klopp played down the chances of taking the full 12 points from their next four games.

“When I think about the next four opponents I can’t think we will have another 12 points,” he said.

“Burnley are a results machine, I have so much admiration for them, then we play Arsenal in a really good moment and Chelsea in a really good moment.

“How can I expect we get all these points? When I think of 92 points I think how did we get 97 last season when we always had the Champions League in the middle?

“You need luck of course, and we had that at Newcastle with [Divock] Origi’s late goal, but you have to fight a lot. That is the mother and father of each win – that you have to work hard for it.”

The Reds will be without Jordan Henderson for these final four games after he suffered a knee injury against Brighton.

All Klopp has said is that ‘I know it will not be nothing’ but there are fears he will miss the start of next season.

Fabinho will be the natural replacement as he sat out of the Brighton game.

Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane were also on the bench for that 3-1 win and should return to the starting line-up against.

Klopp will have to make a decision on whether to rotate his squad and give people a break ahead of next season or play his strongest team and go for the record points.

Their form has been uncharacteristically inconsistent since the restart with a draw to Everton and 4-0 defeat to Man City as well as three wins.

How Liverpool should line-up against Burnley

Burnley head to Anfield in good form having won three of their last four games – all by a 1-0 scoreline.

Sean Dyche’s side have also won back-to-back games away from home against Crystal Palace and West Ham.

They will be without captain Ben Mee, though, who looks set to miss the remainder of the season with a thigh strain while Jack Cork may need surgery on an ankle problem.

Chris Wood and Johann Berg Gudmundsson have only been fit enough for the bench but could be in contention to start.

Ashley Barnes only returned back to light training in the last week and is unlikely to feature.
