Liverpool v Burnley prediction & betting tips brought to you by football expert Tom Love.
- Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 7 games against Burnley.
- Burnley have seen under 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 8 league games.
- Burnley have failed to score in 6 of their last 7 away league games.
- Liverpool have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 4 games.
The pressure is firmly back on current champions Liverpool after their recent stumbles. Leicester went top of the league on Tuesday, and with Manchester United and Manchester City breathing down their necks the pressure is on Jurgen Klopp to make use of this January transfer window in order to have the best chance of keeping the trophy at Anfield.
Serious questions will be asked of their attacking players if they fail to score against a Burnley side that have struggled on the road of late. It’s an ideal chance for the Reds to get back to winning ways and even just a single goal could see them pick up all three points given how poor the Clarets have been in front of goal away from Turf Moor.
Burnley are competitive at the very least in their matches though and Sean Dyche does right to play off fine margins with the functional squad he has available to him. He will no doubt go with a compact midfield, forcing their opponents out wide and happily accept crosses into the box given how good James Tarkowski and Ben Mee are at clearing any danger.
Liverpool should show their quality here though and a low scoring home win looks likely, we can a nice odds-against price about the Reds to win and under 3.5 goals in the game.
