Should Alisson Becker Be Taking Liverpool's Penalty Kicks?

Burnley possible starting lineup:

Peacock-Farrell; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Barnes

Liverpool possible starting lineup:

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, R Williams, Phillips, Robertson; Thiago, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, ManeFresh from their remarkable late winner at WBA, Liverpool travels to Turf Moor to look for another three important Premier League points on the road.

With just 2 games remaining, Liverpool knows only three points will do if they want to give themselves a chance of Champions league qualification. Given both their form and the host's dismal recent performances at Turf Moor, they should be confident of getting them unawares.

Please note, Liverpool has now won 7 of their last 9 premier league matches, losing just once at rivals Leicester City. They can make it 8 here with Burnley struggling badly in recent matches at Turf Moor, including a 4:0 drubbing at the hands of Leeds this past weekend.

Very important notes ahead of the match:

1. Burnley have lost each of their last 3 home league matches while they have failed to any of their last 9 at home.

2. Liverpool has won 7 of their last 9 away PL matches, scoring 2 goals or more in 6 of those wins.

3. Liverpool have won 5 of their last 6 away matches against Burnley, including each of the last 3. Liverpool will be motivated with their recent results. They believe that anything is now possible especially when Alisson helped them last time. I'm quite convinced that he will be given to take on the penalty kick if they get one.

I'm certain that the Reds will launch attack after attacks in this fixture. It is this attacks that will frustrate their opponents and in so doing foul them in the penalty area. In honour of Alisson's father, the squad might allow their goalkeeper take the penalty. Obviously he won't find any difficulties scoring from the spot. Another goal for him will mean a lot ot the club.

Do you think Alisson should be given a chance to take penalties for this club?
