Liverpool v Burnley Premier League betting preview and tips
Liverpool shook off the cobwebs to produce one of their most attacking performances of the season against Watford to enjoy a 5-0 victory and the Reds will be relishing the chance to rack up some more goals at Anfield.
The return of Trent Alexander-Arnold from injury means that not only do Liverpool look more defensively solid but they also have someone who can provide an excellent service from out wide, with the young defender putting the ball on a plate twice for Sadio Mane against the Hornets.
Andy Robertson is similarly adept at getting forward in the left-back position, while Virgil van Dijk continues to be masterful in front of Alisson and seems to be thriving enough alongside Joel Matip who is enjoying an unexpected run of games in the first team.
Mohamed Salah has been relatively quiet recently although the Egyptian continues to play his part, while Mane is looking lively and it appears that the Senegal striker has now been deployed in a centre forward position.
As for Burnley, they have picked up massively in recent weeks and they recently enjoyed a string of four wins, while there were also victories away to Brighton and at home to Tottenham.
However, there was a 2-0 defeat at St James’ Park and a loss on Tyneside suggests that they might struggle against opponents who now have the bit between their teeth and there’s the small matter of goal difference to get things right.
The Clarets are averaging less than a goal per away match and they might not have many scoring chances during the ninety minutes due to their lack of possession and the fact that defending stoutly will be the order of the day.
