Burnley vs Liverpool – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips
Jurgen Klopp’s joy after the win against Everton on the weekend sums up the atmosphere at Liverpool, where every break is taken in hope of keeping up the pace with Manchester City for the title race. Mid-week, the Reds travel to Burnley for what the bookmakers expect to be some easy three points. The hosts are in a bad shape and Liverpool has no excuses to miss the victory here. Last season, they won on Turf Moor, 2-1, after failing to grab the victory on Anfield, in a 1-1 draw. Therefore, can Liverpool’s upfront trio find their past form?
Burnley has conceded 17 goals in the last six Premier League matches, managing to score just three and getting one point. A disappointing run that led the team to be 19th in the Premier League, with just 9 points and a 13-29 aggregate.
The last defeat came at Crystal Palace, 0-2, on the weekend. McArthur opened the score for the hosts in the 16th minute, while Townsend made it 2-0 in the second half, in the 77th minute. It was like Burnley stood no change, with Crystal Palace having nine shots on target and simply dominating the game. How many shots on target did Burnley have? Zero, absolutely nothing. Although at some point Dyche had two strikers on the pitch, Burnley failed to create any danger at Hennessey’s goal.
At home, Burnley has lost four of its six games in the Premier League but has managed to score seven goals. However, four of them were in the win against Bournemouth, 4-0.
Pope and Ward remain sidelined for Burnley, while Brady is questionable for the duel against Liverpool.
- Goalkeeper: Joe Hart
- Backfield: Charlie Taylor, Ben Mee, Kevin Long, Matthew Lowton
- Midfield: Jack Cork, Steven Defour, Aaron Lennon, Johann Gudmundsson
- Forwards: Jeff Hendrick, Sam Vokes
The Reds remain unbeaten in the Premier League, being two points behind Manchester City, with 36 points gathered in 14 rounds, 27-5 aggregate. Jurgen Klopp’s defense is the best in the league and we saw that once again over the weekend when Liverpool triumphed in the local derby against Everton, 1-0 on Anfield. And we’re right to say that Alisson’s purchase made such a big difference in the defense this season!
The only goal against Everton was scored by Origi, on the last play, in the sixth minute of stoppage time. After a missed shot by van Dijk, the Belgian striker followed the ball that landed twice on the crossbar, fooling Pickford, and headed it home.
It was simply madness on the pitch after the goal, with Jurgen Klopp celebrating in his own personal way, invading the field and embracing Becker. However, his conduct led to a lot of reactions after the game.
Lallana, Mane, and Robertson are questionable before the match against Burnley. We’ll probably see some changes in the starting line-up, with players like Milner, Keita or even Sturridge forcing a start.
- Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
- Backfield: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Andrew Robertson
- Midfield: Naby Keita, Georginio Wijnuldum, James Milner
- Forwards: Mohamed Salah, Daniel Sturridge, Sadio Mane
