Liverpool vs Burnley – Premier League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

This Saturday, 11th of July, 2020, the EPL will continue as Liverpool vs Burnley gets underway at Anfield on Match Day 35.

The Reds return following a 3-1 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday. They remain 1st place on the league table, having amassed 92 points – 23 points clear of Manchester City. Their current

form reads; WDWLWW. So far, the champions have 30W, 2D and 2L in 34 league appearances and have scored 72 goals over the 2019/2020 season. Liverpool have conceded only 26 goals and have a GD of +46. Klopp will play his usual 4-3-3 formation with the ever-deadly trio of Firmino, Mane and Salah in attack. Salah scored two goals and provided an assist midweek against Brighton and is in fine form to start once more for the Reds. He has 19 goals so far this season in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Trent Alexander-Arnold is expected to be part of the defense as he looks to extend his remarkable 12 assists on Saturday when his team takes on Burnley at Anfield for their 35th league appearance of the season.

Meanwhile, Burnley will be looking to extend their commendable form over Liverpool. They are 9th place on the league table with only one defeat in six games; DLWWDW. Burnley have 14W, 7D and 13L in 34 league appearances this season. They have 38 goals but conceded 46 – leaving them with a goal difference of -8. Burnley are best known for using the wings to their advantage so we can expect a lot of crosses from the flanks. We can expect a 4-4-2 formation from Sean Dyche as he did against West Ham. Chris Wood is expected to be leading Burnley’s attack while Dwight McNeil and Jeff Hendrick will be playing on the left and right flanks respectively.

The reverse fixture took place in December, 2019. It ended 3-0 in favor of Liverpool. Previously, they played in April, 2019 and it ended 4-2 in favor of the Reds. Before those two games, they met once more and it ended 3-1 – again in favor of Liverpool.

Burnley might be unbeaten in their last four matches but extending that form over Liverpool might be asking for too much.

A 3-1 victory for Liverpool is predicted at full-time.
