March 05, 2019
Anfield - Premier League
Liverpool face Burnley this weekend, with Jurgen Klopp's side in need of a reaction after slipping down to second in the Premier League table.
Liverpool won 3-1 at Turf Moor back in December, with James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri all on target for the visitors that day.
The Reds are unbeaten in their last four games against Sean Dyche's side.
Liverpool have no fresh injury concern ahead of the visit of Burnley, with Alex Oxladde-Chamberlain, Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren all still working their way back to full fitness.
Burnley also have no updates on their injury situation, with midfield pair Steven Defour and Aaron Lennon both still sidelined until next season for The Clarets.
Liverpool v Burnley Preview and Predictions
Klopp's side dropped down to second place, a point behind Manchester City, for the first time in 2019, and the German needs an immediate response from his side. A win in this tie would keep them behind Pep Guardiola's side by a single point, providing the defending champions win at home to Watford on Saturday.
Burnley lost 3-1 at home to Crystal Palace last time out, making it back to back league defeats for the relegation threatened Lancashire side. Dyche knows his side still have work to do to avoid slipping into the bottom three, even though they are currently five points clear of safety.
The pressure is on Liverpool to win comfortably,, and they should be able to negotiate this tie with little issue - with a home win priced at 1/7. The home side will want to put on a performance to keep the crowd onside for the coming weeks, with Liverpool to win both halves coming in at 11/10.
Liverpool to win 3-0 at 13/2
Klopp and his players know they need to stick to their own job and await a potential slip from Guardiola's side, as their title challenge is no longer in their own hands. However they need an attacking performance, and against a Burnley side that has not won just one of their last four away games, they should have enough.
Sadio Mane to score anytime at 5/6
The Senegalese international is the man in form for Liverpool at the moment, with six goals in his last seven Premier League appearances for the Merseysiders. With Firmino and Mo Salah both going through a blip in form, Mane could be the key man in this clash.
