Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp aims brutal dig at Burnley ahead of Boxing Day clash

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp aims brutal dig at Burnley ahead of Boxing Day clash

Klopp has spoken.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has aimed a light-hearted dig at Burnley ahead of the Premier League clash between the two sides on Boxing Day.

The Reds are currently top of the Premier League after Arsenal failed to beat Aston Villa on Saturday evening.

Klopp's side have lost only once so far this season - a controversial 2-1 defeat to Tottenham - and are currently a point clear of the Gunners at the top of the division.

The Reds' next two league games see them take on Manchester United and Arsenal at Anfield, and Klopp's side will be top at Christmas if they secure positive results in both fixtures.

They then face a trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley, who are facing a major threat of relegation this term under Vincent Kompany.

Although the Clarets thrashed fellow strugglers Sheffield United 5-0 earlier this month, their only other victory of the season came away at Luton, and they are only off the bottom of the table on goal difference.

It is a game that Liverpool will enter as major favourites, with Klopp's side looking to continue their strong away record this term.

The Reds have only lost once at Turf Moor during Klopp's time in charge, a 2-0 defeat to Sean Dyche's side in August 2016.

And the German joked about celebrating Christmas in Burnley ahead of his side making the trip up the M6 on Boxing Day.

Speaking at the test event for the grand opening of the Anfield Road End, Klopp commented: "Where do we go on the 26th? Oh, a drive to Burnley. Yes, a great place to celebrate Christmas.

"We have minutes of Christmas, and we will cherish them and celebrate them, and it's all fine. Nobody in this country wants to miss Boxing Day [football] so that means we will be on the motorway to deliver."
