Liverpool vs Burnley - Lovren looks set for Reds return

Defender Dejan Lovren could return to Liverpool’s squad for the visit of Burnley on Sunday after a two-month absence with a hamstring injury.

Midfielder James Milner had been hampered by a muscle problem but is expected to be fit in time.

Defender Joe Gomez, out since December with a fractured leg, is likely to return after the international break while midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, sidelined since April by a serious knee injury, makes his playing comeback for the under-23s at Derby on Friday.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche looks set to have the same group of players to choose from as he did last time out.

Midfielder Steven Defour, one of those absent from the 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace last Saturday, is unlikely to play again this season having had a calf operation.

And winger Aaron Lennon, who underwent knee surgery in December, is not yet ready to make his comeback.
