Burnley News and Form
Burnley went down 2-0 on the road at Crystal Palace on the weekend, which saw their miserable slump continue. That leaves the Clarets with only the two points in their last seven league outings. They are just W1 D1 L4 at home and are rooted in the Premier League drop zone. The Clarets have suffered back to back home defeats in the league and have gone winless in three in their own backyard. Burnley have just the one goal in their last three league home games. Both teams not to score is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). No-one has earned fewer home points than Burnley this season in the EPL.
Burnley have faced two of the current top three this season (Chelsea and Man City) and have lost both of those games without getting on the scoresheet. In total, they have managed just seven home goals and of those home goals, 71% of them have been in the first half of matches. The Clarets have conceded an average of two goals per game on home soil this term, picking up just the one clean sheet along the way. Burnley have been trailing at the half time break in three of their six home fixtures. A Liverpool/Liverpool half-time/full-time option is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). The Clarets have the worst home record of all sides in the top flight currently

Liverpool News and Form
Liverpool banked a win against Everton in the Merseyside derby and it couldn’t have been much more dramatic, as they took their goal in the sixth minute of stoppage time. It was another big pressure test for them which they passed to keep their unbeaten form for the season going. Out on the road in the top flight this season Liverpool have come up with a very good W5 D2 L0 record. In their last game away from Anfield they picked up a 3-0 win at Watford. They have taken three straight clean sheets as well now in the league (home and away combined). Liverpool to win to nil is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm)
Liverpool have conceded just four away goals all season, scoring 12 of their own. Of the goals that they have conceded on the road, three of them have been after the half time break. Less than half of their away games this season have made it to at least three goals. So under 2.5 goals is at 13/10 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). They have found the back of the net in each of their last six league games. They have been leading at halftime in four of their seven road games. After their clean sheet on the weekend, they now have the best defensive record in the top flight. Only Spurs have a better away record than Liverpool this term.
Who will win – Burnley v Liverpool Predictions
Liverpool can go and strike a win even if they have not been clicking as an attacking unit during the last week. The defence of Burnley is at sixes and sevens and will likely give up chances to the visitors. Away win.
