With their rivals for the top four not in action this weekend, can Liverpool take a huge step towards the Champions League on Sunday? They are widely expected to pick up three points at Anfield, with Burnley the visitors.
Liverpool vs Burnley Predictions
Liverpool’s lack of European commitments this term means that away goals haven’t been at all important at Anfield. However, we’re focusing on them this week, given that 888Sport are offering 21/20 for Burnley to score at Anfield. That’s an excellent price for any top-flight side, never mind one who are in form. The Clarets have scored in six straight away trips in the league, including scoring twice at Swansea last time out. Liverpool have managed one clean sheet in the Premier League since the turn of the year, so that seems to be excellent value for our first Liverpool vs Burnley prediction. It’s even more appealing when you consider how difficult Jurgen Klopp’s men seem to find playing against smaller teams. Open an 888Sport account via this link and get treble odds for your bet.
Liverpool’s only league wins in 2017 have been against sides who were above them, Tottenham and Arsenal. Their ability to win these kinds of matches may be hit and miss, but there’s little doubt about Burnley. The Clarets have the league’s worst away record, picking up two points on their travels this season. They’ve lost all but one of their last nine away trips, and we’re backing them to suffer another defeat against the Reds.
This a huge opportunity for Klopp as his team, so we’re backing them to win a third consecutive home game. Since we’re backing an away goal, we’re also going with a home win and BTTS for our second Liverpool vs Burnley betting tip, which is 2/1 with Betfred.
