Burnley v Liverpool Betting Preview
Venue: Turf Moor
Having won 4 of their last 6 home games without conceding, Burnley head into this game with confidence and much less fear then perhaps expected when Liverpool are visiting. The home side are tough to beat on home soil, and rarely see high scoring games with both teams not scoring in 9 of their last 10. Once the home side go ahead they are hard to defeat let alone snatching a draw. Although, the last time a premier league big boy came to Lancashire they were defeated comfortably, by Spurs 3-0.
The visitors travel to Turf Moor with fantastic away forma against the so called lower teams in the league. The Reds have scored 3 or more in their last 5 away league games, winning 4 of these. Having added Van Dijk to their defense from January onwards, Liverpool look more like a complete team despite the £75 million price tag. For the only time this season, Klopp played all of Salah, Coutinho, Mane and Firmino in their last away trip to Arsenal where they scored three. Let’s hope for Burnley’s sake that the German doesn’t choose to do so again.
Henderson picked up a hamstring strain last week at Arsenal. Mohamed Salah is a doubt.
Potential Burnley Starting XI: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Cork, Gudmundsson, Hendrick, Defour, Arfield, Barnes
Potential Liverpool Starting XI: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Matip, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Can, Coutinho, Chamberlain, Firmino, Mane
