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.
Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Liverpool vs Burnley to get your teeth stuck into.
Liverpool vs Burnley betting tips & predictions
Liverpool are 1/6 to win, with Burnley priced at 14/1 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 6/1.
Prediction: 3-1 (9/1)
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.

"It is very tough going to these places and winning games, last season they had some injuries and we maybe caught them at a slower period and earned the right to win a game."
