Liverpool Fans Are Suddenly Confident Of Burnley Beating City After Remembering Dyche Is A LFC Fan

Liverpool fans are convinced that Burnley will take points off Manchester City after remembering Sean Dyche is a boyhood LFC fan.

Ahead of Burnley entertaining City in a potentially season-defining moment, Dyche has revealed he grew up supporting Liverpool.

"My first recollection of them was at seven years old, then at about eight or nine when you start zooming in on what it's really about," he said in his pre-match press conference.

"You start getting your favourite players, mine was King Kenny - as a kid why wouldn't he be your favourite player?

"Souness as well, and Ray Clemence who I've met many times, what a fantastic player, no airs and graces.

"That whole Liverpool thing was quite a powerful thing in the 70s."

Liverpool supporters are suddenly full of optimism for Burnley's fixture against City.

They'll be hoping and praying for a favour from Dyche's team. But he was tight-lipped when asked if he wants Liverpool to raise silverware in May.

"The challenge is out there for both of them," he added.

"The two of them slugging it out, it's going to be tight, it's irrelevant what I think but it's going to be tight."

Meanwhile, Liverpool face Huddersfield Town tonight and a victory would see them return to the top of the table ahead of City's trip to Turf Moor on Sunday.

The race for the title is hotting up. Who'll be crowned English champions?
