Liverpool vs Burnley: Match Preview and Prediction
Liverpool vs Burnley: In three of the previous four Premier League games, Liverpool scored four goals. Four of Burnley’s past five league games have seen them concede two goals or more. In his last five Reds games, Darwin Nunez has scored three goals.
This weekend, Liverpool will be trying to get back after suffering a heartbreaking 1-3 setback against Arsenal. They meet Burnley, a team that is fighting for relegation, on Saturday afternoon at Anfield in Matchday No. 24. The Reds are overwhelming favourites; thus, any outcome other than a convincing win would be a significant upset.
Six days ago, Liverpool suffered a 1-3 loss in North London, snapping a four-game winning streak in the Premier League. It was among the least effective attacking performances Jurgen Klopp’s team has had all season. It says it all that the Reds managed just one shot on goal.
Klopp’s team should have more last-third space in this game. Burnley has the league’s second-worst defence, allowing 47 goals in 23 games. The guest-facing position is difficult. Burnley has lost five league games in a row. They are seven points behind Luton in the safe zone entering this match.
Liverpool vs Burnley: Betting Analysis
Liverpool had four straight wins over Burnley. The run includes this season’s Boxing Day 2-0 win at Turf Moor. In 40 games versus Burnley at home, Liverpool has won 22, drawn 12, and lost 6. Only once in seven head-to-head matchups between these rivals were both teams scoring.
Liverpool cannot afford a mistake after losing to Arsenal the weekend before. They lead Manchester City and Arsenal by two points in the Premier League. They scored four goals in three of four league games. They should have plenty of room to move around Burnley’s weak defence. The Clarets have the division’s second-worst defence.
Additionally, four of the previous five league games saw two or more goals allowed by Vincent Kompany’s team. From the outset to the last whistle, this ought to be a one-way roadway. At 2.15 odds, you may wager on Liverpool to win by a goal differential of three or more.
Jurgen Klopp cannot count Mohamed Salah due to injury. Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota are his most dangerous attackers. Darwin has scored three goals in his past five competitive outings. They substituted in the second half against Arsenal last weekend due to injury concerns. The Uruguayan striker should be ready to participate from the start on Saturday. Darwin has 1.80 odds to score anytime, which is appealing.
