Burnley vs Liverpool Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Burnley’s disastrous run continued with the team losing 2-0 against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. James McArthur’s cross went into the back of the net without anybody touching the ball and it gave Palace a 16th-minute lead. Andros Townsend unleashed a fierce shot in the 77th-minute to put the game beyond any doubt for Palace. Liverpool were able to manage a late 1-0 win over Everton to remain in touch with Manchester City. Both teams had brilliant chances in front of goal but it was Jordan Pickford’s mistake that led to a 96th-minute goal from Divock Origi.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Many teams have struggled at Turf Moor in the past but Liverpool have picked up three wins in the last four visits to this ground. The 2-0 win for Burnley in 2016 happens to be the shocker for the Reds. Unlike in the last few seasons, Liverpool may not fear about making this trip considering how poor Burnley have been this season. The Clarets have been on the losing side in four out of the last six matches, while Liverpool have been in a winning position at both halves in 50% of their last six games. My pick would be to back a Liverpool win at both halves.

Everton did not provide Mohamed Salah with a lot of space behind the defence, but Liverpool will have better control taking opportunities against Burnley. Salah has scored just one goal against Burnley in his career, but the opposition defence is one of the poorest around. I would back Salah to score anytime.

Liverpool win at half-time and full-time – 4/5

Mohamed Salah to score anytime – 4/7

Burnley Preview

Burnley manager Sean Dyche is becoming one of the favourites to lose his job, as the Clarets have been unable to pick up any form over the last few weeks. Apart from a few days in the sunshine, Burnley have had a disastrous campaign so far. Last season, the club conceded 39 goals in the entire season but they have already let in 29 so far this season. This poor defensive record has been the primary factor behind Burnley’s inability to get positive results and the team slipped into the bottom three last weekend. After having scored an average of around a goal per game, Burnley clearly have to focus on improving the defence.

Burnley Team News

Nick Pope (shoulder) and Stephen Ward (knee) are unavailable for Burnley.

Liverpool Preview

Liverpool have done extremely well to stay in touch with Manchester City even when they have not been at their best. The title challenge has been built on results at Anfield, while the club has conceded just one goal since February. The Reds have also been unbeaten at Anfield for almost 2 years. Yet, the same cannot be said about Liverpool’s away form, but the Reds remain as one of the two unbeaten teams in away games this season. If Mohamed Salah was the star performer for Liverpool last season, Virgil van Dijk will take up that position for the 2018-19 season as the defender has come up with many exemplary performances this season.

Liverpool Team News

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (cruciate ligament), Adam Lallana (muscle), Curtis Jones (hamstring), and Kamil Grabara (illness) are unavailable for Liverpool.
