Liverpool Vs Burnley Prediction, Odds And Team News

Liverpool will be looking to make it two wins from two when they clash with Burnley at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime. 

Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking for revenge against Burnley who famously ended their run of 68 Premier League home matches without a defeat last season. 

Burnley made a perfect start to their opening match last weekend after scoring within the first two minutes, but were eventually beaten 2-1 by Graham Potter’s well-drilled Brighton & Hove Albion side.

Liverpool, meanwhile, dominated their match against newly-promoted Norwich City, with Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah all opening their accounts in an impressive 3-0 victory.

Half-Time/Full-Time: Draw/Liverpool (3/1)

In what is likely to be a cagey affair from the first whistle, Burnley should keep things tight, which is likely to open up in the second half.

Intriguingly, in the six games between these two sides since the 2018-19 season, there have been 19 goals scored and 12 of those have come in the second half.

To win and both teams to score: Liverpool (9/4)

Anfield will be packed and intimidating for Burnley on Saturday, whose win last season was their first at Anfield since 1974.

Liverpool, especially on the evidence of the 3-0 win at Norwich City on Saturday, look to be approaching their best again and should be able to see past Burnley with ease.

To score anytime: Roberto Firmino (13/8) 

Roberto Firmino has shone in these fixtures in recent years and has been a regular on the scoresheet against Burnley.

The Brazilian has netted five times in the Reds’ last six meetings with the Clarets so, for that reason, we’re backing the 29-year-old to find the net again this afternoon.

Liverpool team news

Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson are slowly building up their match fitness, so Klopp should have both men available for selection here.

Elsewhere, Kostas Tsimikas will continue at left-back as Andy Robertson battles back from ankle ligament damage.


Burnley team news

Dale Stephens and Kevin Long both remain unavailable after going under the knife for their respective injuries, but Sean Dyche is otherwise has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Ashley Barnes famously scored the winner which gave Liverpool their first home defeat since April 2017 last season, but he is fighting an uphill battle to displace Jay Rodriguez or Chris Wood up top.
