Burnley will aim to become the first team this season to deny Liverpool points in the top flight. Even though they have only taken the one win, the performances of Burnley has been very good so far. Liverpool had a bit of a sketchy time in their one away game this season, the Reds taking a narrow win at Southampton. Read our Burnley v Liverpool betting tips for more.

Burnley News and Form
The Clarets have collected four points from their opening three games of the new campaign. It could easily have been more points collected by them already though. They started with a 3-0 home win over Southampton and then easily deserved a point at Arsenal, but slipped to a 2-1 loss. Last weekend on a trip to Wolves the Clarets were well on top in the game but conceded an equalising goal in the 97th minute of play.
The positive is, is that they have been putting the ball in the back of the net. Another is that they have a striker who is well in form and that is Ashley Barnes who has scored four of their five league goals this season. In midweek an understrength Burnley suffered a shock EFL Cup loss against League One side Sunderland. Each of Burnley’s last three games against Liverpool in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals.
Given that Liverpool haven’t looked great in defence this season, the betting options should probably lean towards both teams getting on the scoresheet in a high scoring game. Last season at Turf Moor Burnley posted a W7 D2 L10 record and lost five of their six home fixtures against top-six sides, including a 3-1 loss against Liverpool.

Liverpool News and Form
The Reds are the only team with a 100% record after just three games of the new Premier League season. They kept up their early momentum with a comfortable win over Arsenal last weekend. The 3-1 success that they took at Anfield against the Gunners, added to their wins over Norwich and Southampton. It’s a total of nine goals already from the Reds this season.
It is now a twelve match winning streak that Liverpool are on in the Premier League, scoring at least two goals in each of those. The Reds have scored at least 2 goals in their last three matches against Burnley. So a decent betting angle in this game is for the Reds to get at least two goals on the board at Turf Moor.
It is remarkable stuff from them and Mo Salah is leading the way in goals for them, having bagged three for the season. He’s the only Liverpool player with more than one goal for this campaign. In their one away game this season they didn’t play well, but still landed a 2-1 win at Southampton. There has been no clean sheet from Liverpool so far but still, they have been winning at both half time and full time in their last 12 league games.
Burnley v Liverpool Tips & Odds
Who will win – Burnley v Liverpool Predictions
We think that Burnley can knuckle down and frustrate Liverpool at least until half time in this one. The Reds weren’t great on the road at Southampton and Burnley are always up for a good fight. We do expect of course Liverpool to go on and get the win. Half time draw.
