Betting prediction: Liverpool 3 – 0 Burnley

Liverpool welcomes Burnley to Anfield on Saturday for this Premier League match.

For Premier League fans, the talk is always of Turf Moor being a tough place to go and get a result. However, this has not been the case for Liverpool. They have won on 6 of their 7 visits to Burnley, including each of the last 4, and have stuck 3 past them on each of their last 3 visits.

If anything, it has been games at Anfield which have been the problem for Jurgen Klopp’s Reds. Liverpool have won just 1 of the last 4 matches at Anfield in this head-to-head, and suffered defeat against Sean Dyche’s side here last season.

Liverpool vs Burnley: Recommended bets

101 Great Goals’ prediction of Liverpool 3 – 0 Burnley is available at odds of 13/2.

4-2 Liverpool win. Liverpool’s last home victory over Burnley came back in March 2019 by a 4-2 scoreline. A repeat of this score on Saturday is available at odds of 50/1.

1-1 draw. Draws are a rarity in this head-to-head with only 2 in 14 Premier League matches. However, both have come at Anfield, during Klopp’s time at the club and with the same 1-1 scoreline. Odds of 12/1 are available if you see this match finishing with the same result.

0-1 Burnley win. The last time these sides met at Anfield resulted in a 0-1 win for Burnley back in January. You can back them at 33/1 for the same scoreline here on Saturday.

Under 2.5 goals. Liverpool vs Burnley at Anfield has been a low scoring game lately, with 3 of the last 4 such clashes producing under 2.5 goals. You can back another low scoring game here on Saturday with odds of 6/4 for under 2.5 goals.

Mohamed Salah Goalscorer. Salah was the best player on the pitch in Liverpool’s opening day 0-3 win at Norwich. As well as his goal, he bagged 2 assists and was rightly named man of the match.

The Egyptian King (pictured below) doesn’t have a great record against Burnley, though, with just 1 goal in 7 matches against them, and is goalless in his last 6 appearances versus the Clarets. Despite this, Mo is the 2/1 favourite to score the game’s opener on Saturday. Or 4/9 on to bag a goal at any time during the game against Burnley.

Liverpool vs Burnley: What are the betting odds?

The Reds are without a win in their last 2 home matches against Burnley. Despite this, they are huge favourites at 1/5 on to take all 3 points from Burnley on Saturday.

The Clarets won on their last visit and are 14/1 to pick up back-to-back away wins at Anfield.

Odds of 11/2 are available if you see Liverpool and Burnley cancelling each other out on Saturday.

Liverpool vs Burnley: Match preview

Sean Dyche’s Burnley have developed a reputation for being difficult for the ‘big six’ to handle.

Accusations of being rough, or physical, or just a long-ball side. Regardless of what is said, the narrative in the media is that the bigger sides hate playing Dyche’s Burnley.

This hasn’t really been true of Liverpool until recently, though. Prior to lockdown, Liverpool had won 4 in a row against the Clarets, the latter 3 of which were all by a 2-goal margin. Jurgen Klopp’s only defeat to Dyche was in his first match in charge against Burnley – a baptism of fire if you will.

However, that all changed with the most recent matches at Anfield, both of which had no fans present. A 1-1 draw towards the end of the title-winning campaign in July 2020 was followed by a 0-1 defeat here last season. It was the start of a spell that saw the Reds slide from the top of the table to mid-table before they regrouped for the final months of the season.

Early in his time at Liverpool, Klopp talked about the power of the fans. The unique bond that the Liverpool players have with the Kop that sings their names. He commented after a defeat by Crystal Palace in 2015 that watching the fans leave made him feel very alone – in direct contrast to the song they sing before every game.

Weeks later, in a similar position against West Brom, the supporters stayed. They willed the team to get something out of the game and the players obliged with a late equaliser. Queue the famous footage of the Liverpool players and manager ‘celebrating a draw against West Brom’. It didn’t make sense to the outside world, but for the players and fans, it was recognition that their bond was real. That they needed each other.

It was the first building block in Anfield becoming a fortress once again. This ultimately resulted in a 68-game unbeaten home run until Liverpool fell to Burnley in January, in an empty Anfield, with the players and manager no doubt feeling alone once more.

This Saturday will see the Kop full as stadiums packed to the rafters are allowed once again. Klopp will be telling his players that this is what they were waiting for. Perhaps that those empty Anfield defeats don’t count because ‘without fans, football is nothing’. They have to go out there and prove that the Liverpool we saw struggle over the past 17 months was not the real deal. That side can be forgotten now, and consigned to the past, just like those soulless empty stadiums.

Liverpool team news vs Burnley

Pictures circulated on social media in mid-week showing Andrew Robertson back in training. While it is remarkable to see him back running a little over a week after his ankle injury, the Scot isn’t involved in team sessions and is probably still a week or two from consideration for the first team.

Curtis Jones missed the first game of the season due to concussion protocols. He was back in team training on Sunday and should be available for the visit of Burnley. He likely takes a place on the bench at best, though.

Thiago was absent at the weekend too. After his late arrival back for pre-season, coupled with a minor injury problem, he is now catching up on fitness. Any involvement here will likely be from the bench.

Jordan Henderson is even further behind in his pre-season work than Thiago. It is unlikely we see him have any meaningful involvement in Liverpool’s games until after the international break in September.

Fabinho and Roberto Firmino came off the bench at the weekend, and immediately Liverpool looked all the better for it. Expect Fabinho to be recalled to the starting XI here in place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, with Firmino replacing one of Sadio Mané (pictured above) or Diogo Jota in attack.

Burnley team news vs Liverpool

Dale Stephens missed Burnley’s opener with an ankle injury. No return date has been provided but, given the fact that he didn’t even make the bench, he is unlikely to be involved here.

Similar to Stephens, Kevin Long is out with a lower leg injury that has been troubling him since last season. He seems no nearer a solution at present.

While there are no new injury concerns for Sean Dyche, he may make a few changes here to the side that slumped to a 1-2 home defeat against Brighton.

Jack Cork had a very poor game in midfield before being withdrawn towards the end. John Brownhill will be hoping he showed enough in his 10-minute cameo to replace him.

Ashley Barnes (pictured above) and Matej Vydra will also be hoping to get the nod in attack with one or both of Jay Rodriguez and Chris Wood having to make do with a place on the bench.
