Liverpool face Burnley at 3pm on Saturday afternoon in a bid to get their form back on track, following a crushing 5-0 defeat to Manchester City and a 2-2 draw in midweek against Sevilla.

Renault's contract with Red Bull ends after 2018, and as that relationship has been nowhere near harmonious with numerous complaints about reliability from Red Bull, they've opted not to extend it.
