The centre-back is relishing the prospect of making his first appearance at the historic ground, and says the emphasis is on bouncing back quickly from Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Leicester City. 

He said, “We’ve just got to take one game at a time and go again for Liverpool.

“That’s why you want to be in the Premier League, to play in games like this. I have never been to Anfield, so I am looking forward it.

“We will dust ourselves down, take a look at Liverpool and see how we can affect them.”

Burn reflected more on the Leicester game as a whole, and stressed that it’s important to continue the faith in the way they have been playing since the start of the season.

“I thought we played well. They started off well in the first 20 minutes and were the better team, but I felt we grew into it and were the better side in the second half.

“Losing 2-0 is disappointing, especially the manner in which we conceded the goals. If they cut you open, you can hold your hands up and say fair enough, but we conceded two poor goals and lacked that bit of quality to finish a few chances off.

“Our expectations are high. We pride ourselves on the way we have been playing. Everyone has bought into the gaffer's philosophy, but now we have to dust ourselves down because we’ve got some tough games ahead.”
