Liverpool vs. Burnley: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool will be looking to build on an impressive start to the season when they host Burnley in the first game of the second week.

The Reds opened the campaign off with an easy 3-0 win away at newly promoted Norwich City.

Goal from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah secured all three points at Carrow Road.

Burnley were beaten at home by Brighton on the opening day, despite James Tarkowski’s early headed goal.

Brighton were much the better side in the second half and turned the game around through goals from Neal Maupay and Alexis MacAllister.

Match history
Burnley spectacularly ended Liverpool’s 68 game unbeaten home record in the last Anfield meeting, thanks to a late Ashley Barnes penalty.

Pool got revenge with an easy 3-0 win at Turf Moor later in the campaign.

Last five Premier League meetings
Burnley 0 Liverpool 3 – 19/05/21

Burnley 0 Liverpool 3 – 31/08/19

Team news
Andrew Robertson has returned to training; however it’s unlikely he will be rushed back here.

Jota should keep his spot in the side and Liverpool could deploy all of their four forward options.

Burnley are likely to name a similar XI here despite their opening day defeat.

Dale Stephens and Kevin Long will miss the trip to Anfield.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-2-3-1): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Tsimikas; Keita, Fabinho; Salah, Firmino, Mane; Jota

Burnley (4-4-2): Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Wood, Rodriguez


Result: Liverpool
Liverpool are big favourites here and should make it two from two on Saturday

Correct Score: 3-1
Burnley aren’t as good defensively as they have been in recent seasons; however have scored on their last three visits to Anfield

Anytime Goalscorer: Diogo Jota
Jota opened the scoring against Norwich and will likely lead the line here
