Burnley Face Unbeaten Liverpool At Turf Moor
The Premier League returns this weekend for another full set of fixtures, with one of the most intriguing being set to take place at Turf Moor up in Lancashire. Burnley will be going head to head with European champions Liverpool, in what should be a really entertaining clash of styles. Both sides are currently preparing for their schedules to get a little bit busier over the course of the next few weeks, but it truly does feel like they’re both more than ready for the challenges that come with a more intimidating schedule.
Burnley’s start to the campaign certainly served as a reminder of what they’re capable of at this level, as they were able to dispatch of Southampton with a fairly comfortable 3-0 triumph. They went on to lose 2-1 to Arsenal in what was a good test for them, before being unlucky not to get all three points against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux. In terms of team news, Drinkwater and Hart aren’t expected to feature after playing in the League Cup. Lennon or Hendrick will likely feature, with a calf injury ruling out Gudmundsson as the Clarets attempt to change things up.
They may have lost the Community Shield but aside from that, it’s been an absolute dream start to the season for Jurgen Klopp’s men. They battered Norwich 4-1, they won the Super Cup against Chelsea, and then they put together another series of back to back wins – this time against Southampton and Arsenal. Joe Gomez is set to replace Alexander-Arnold for this one, with Milner expected to get the nod ahead of Wijnaldum with the hope being that he can add a physical presence into the middle of the park. Either way, though, the Reds will be pretty confident in their chances as always.
Burnley vs Liverpool Betting Prediction
Burnley have been a tough nut to crack this season already, and even that is putting it lightly. They’ve got the potential to do a lot of really interesting things this season both in the cups and in the Premier League, but against Liverpool, that isn’t going to matter. Jurgen Klopp’s side are just too good and it doesn’t even really feel like they’ve hit that next level yet, which is scary. The Reds are going to soak up any and all pressure from the Clarets like a sponge, to the point where they’re able to get the win with relative come full time.
