It is a completely different picture for Sean Dyche's side, who are staring at a very possible first relegation in seven years.
So picking up points is massive for The Clarets, no matter the difficulty of the fixture.
Despite this Dyche still has absentees within his squad for this game.
Johann Berg Gudmundsson is also out for the foreseeable future, following a bout of appendicitis.
And another important player in Charlie Taylor is a doubt for this Sunday's game as he continues his comeback from an ankle injury.
Salah had been absent at the African Cup of Nations, as was winger Sadio Mane who is 'touch and go' for this one, following his Senegal side defeating a Salah-led Egypt in the final of the competition.
Ones to watch
Expect the 32-year-old to cause the Liverpool backline problems with his runs in between the lines.
Liverpool - Mohamed Salah: Salah's 30-minute cameo against Leicester showed what The Reds have been missing in his absence due to International duty.
The Egyptian hit a curling effort against the bar in the 80th minute of the game, to prove he hasn't missed a beat after time away.
The 29-year-old scored in eight of the first nine Premier League fixtures this season, with Burnley the only side to deny him, so he will be looking to amend that here.
Burnley: Pope, Roberts, Mee, Tarkowski, Pieters, McNeil, Brownhill, Westwood, Cornet, Rodriguez, Weghorst. (4-4-2)
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Thiago, Fabinho, Jones, Salah, Jota, Diaz. (4-3-3)
Burnley come into this game unbeaten in three league games, however have not won in the competition since the end of October.
Since that win The Clarets have lost four times in 11 games.
Liverpool have won their last three in the league, and are unbeaten in five, with the last loss coming away at Leicester back in December.
This will be a far from routine win for Klopp's men, as Burnley will bring defensive resilience and have a sell-out home crowd behind them.
However, the speed of The Reds counter-attack and intensity of their counter-press should be enough to see of Dyche's side this time around.
Prediction - Burnley 1-3 Liverpool
This game will not be broadcast for UK audiences, however, highlights of the game will be available on the Sky Sports YouTube Channel, as well as on Match Of The Day 2, which is on BBC Two at 10:30pm.
