Burnley v Liverpool Premier League Preview, 1st January 3.00pm
The Clarets have enjoyed a fine season on home soil in the top flight but their great defence will naturally be put to the test in this one against the powerful Liverpool attack. The Reds have put together some very strong form out on the road since the beginning of November and go as 4/9 odds on favourites to win the game, with the draw at 3/1 and Burnley are big 7/1 underdogs.
Burnley News and Form
Burnley’s home form has been strong this season with a W5 D2 L3 record on the board from their ten outings at Turf Moor. They did suffer a loss in their last home game though as they went down 3-0 against Spurs. Four of the five wins that they have recorded on home soil have all been achieved by just the one goal margin, while two of the three losses they have suffered at Turf Moor have been by the one goal margin too. They have conceded just the six goals at home and half of those were in that recent defeat to Spurs. The Clarets have managed only the seven home goals this season and in total, just 10% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. This one is even money to go under the goal line. Can they keep Liverpool at bay though? The Clarets are a big price of 11/2 at Ladbrokes for a clean sheet in this game. It may well be worth considering both teams not to score as in each of the three defeats they have suffered at home this term, Burnley have failed to score in. 67% of the goals that they have conceded on home soil have come in the second half of matches.
Liverpool News and Form
The away form of the Reds is pretty hot right now with a W4 D1 record in their last five on the road and they have scored at least three goals in each of those five games as well. Seven times in their ten away games this season they have managed to score at least three goals in a match. In the Ladbrokes correct score market, a Liverpool 2-0 option is at 13/2 as they are going up against a good Burnley defence, while a 3-0 away win comes in at a price of 10/1. Overall the Reds have posted a W5 D3 L2 record on their travels this season in the top flight and they have been ahead at the break in six of their road games. So they are averaging 2.7 goals away from Anfield, but their defence has taken a battering on the road, conceding at a rate of exactly two goals per game on average. 70% of their away games have gone over 4.5 goals which is staggering. Both Mo Salah (injury doubt) and Roberto Firmino have been in good scoring form on the road and they are 11/10 and 11/8 respectively in the anytime goalscorer market for this one. Liverpool have opened the scoring in seven of their away games and have been leading at half time in six of them.
Burnley v Liverpool Head to Head
The Clarets dug in for a 1-1 draw at Liverpool earlier in the season and that leaves things even in the last three Premier League meetings between them with one win each and a draw. From the seven previous Premier League meetings between them, Liverpool are up in the head to head with a W5 D1 L1 record over Burnley.
Who will win – Burnley v Liverpool Predictions
The scoring threat that Liverpool possess gets the nod in this one. The Clarets have been defensively immense at home this season but this is going to be a huge test for them, probably one that they aren’t going to get through. Away win.
