Liverpool vs Burnley Betting Tips
Liverpool have not scored in the league in their last three games. They have dropped like a stone from first place down to fourth place. If the Reds want to win a second straight Premier League title, they have got to get things sorted out now. The Reds’ attack has been abysmal over the last 270 minutes of football. While the talk continues to be about Liverpool’s central defence, it is actually their attack preventing them from winning.
Burnley are just four points above the relegation zone going into matchday 19. The Clarets are on a two-match losing streak heading into the midweek match and both Fulham and West Brom are breathing down their necks.
Sean Dyche’s team took points off of Liverpool at Anfield last season as the clubs drew 1-1. Liverpool had the title wrapped up when the two teams met, however. Jurgen Klopp is desperate for his team to score goals and win matches. If Liverpool drop any more points, they will fall further in the race for the title. Manchester United are still three points ahead of Liverpool and Leicester City and Manchester City have both moved above the Reds.
Liverpool will put their home unbeaten run on the line when playing Burnley this weekend. The Reds are unbeaten in 78 of their last 84 games at Anfield. After playing Burnley on Thursday night, Liverpool will return to the FA Cup on Sunday with a match away to Manchester United.
Liverpool vs Burnley Betting Odds
The Premier League champions have taken a mere nine points from their last 18 possible. Despite winning just twice in that six-match run, Liverpool have conceded a mere three goals while scoring 10 times. The problem is that seven of Liverpool’s 10 goals in their last six matches occurred against Crystal Palace.
Burnley have taken seven points from the last 18 on offer. Dyche’s team have had a hard time scoring goals as just three were tallied over their last six matches. They have picked up points thanks to a strong defence. The Clarets have allowed just four goals to opponents.
Liverpool are favourite to win the match according to leading sportsbooks. The Reds are at odds of 3/16 to claim a win at full-time against Burnley at Anfield. Liverpool are unbeaten at home this season posting a 7W-2D-0L record. Liverpool have outscored opponents at Anfield 21-8.
Burnley are at odds of 18/1 to claim a victory at Anfield this week. The Clarets have not defeated Liverpool since the 2016-17 league season. In 2019-20, Dyche’s side got a 1-1 draw at Anfield. Andy Robertson opened the scoring in the first half; however, Liverpool couldn’t put the match away. Jay Rodriguez scored a second-half equaliser to share the spoils. The teams are at odds of 13/ to end in a draw at full-time.
Liverpool vs Burnley Team News
Liverpool’s injured centre-backs continue to take the headlines, but their absences have not been the reason the club haven’t won matches. The team are dropping points due to Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah not scoring goals.
Firmino was guilty of poor finishing against Manchester United on Sunday. Had he been on target in the first half, Liverpool would have gone into the half up three goals. Klopp is desperate to have Diogo Jota back from injury. He is still ruled out, however.
Jordan Henderson partnered Fabinho in central defence and could do again this week. Joel Matip is nearly fit but could be held back for Sunday’s FA Cup game. Thiago Alcantara and Xherdan Shaqiri played in midfield and were brilliant together. Thiago ran the show for much of the match and Shaqiri was his deputy. The duo picked apart Manchester United’s defence but the forwards couldn’t find the back of the net.
Dyche has three players on his injury list. Charlie Taylor, Jimmy Dunne, and Bailey Peacock-Farrell are both suffering from injury and/or illness. Taylor and Dunne could return to the team while Peacock-Farrell is not expected back for the match.
Liverpool vs Burnley Prediction
Both teams to score: NO @ 17/10 - BET NOW
Liverpool’s defence has been brilliant despite being makeshift. Once again, it isn’t the defence keeping Liverpool from winning. The club’s problems are in attack. Three of Liverpool’s last five matches saw them keep clean sheets. In four of their last five league games, both teams did not score. Four straight Burnley league matches ended without both teams scoring goals.
Thiago to score anytime @ 11/2 - BET NOW
Thiago was brilliant versus Manchester United and ran the show. It wasn’t just his passing that was impressive. Thiago dribbled past defenders and took on some stinging shots. David De Gea’s late leaping save kept the game level at zero as Thiago stung the keeper’s hands. Thiago was not a goalscorer at Bayern Munich but could get off the mark this week against Burnley.
Under 2.5 goals scored @ 20/21 - BET NOW
Last season’s game at Anfield finished with under 2.5 goals scored and that trend should continue this week. Liverpool are not scoring goals and they should continue to struggle in front of goal while the defence keeps Burnley’s attack at bay.
Four straight Burnley matches ended with under 2.5 goals scored in the league. Meanwhile, four straight Liverpool matches finished with under 2.5 goals tallied. Expect another low-scoring game for both clubs as goals are hard to come by. Burnley will back players into the Liverpool final third and look to hit on the counter.
Liverpool need Diogo Jota back in the team to improve the attack. Since his injury in December, Liverpool have struggled to score and create. Klopp could rotate his team with Divock Origi and/or Takumi Minamino coming into the team. His additions of Thiago and Shaqiri worked, but now a change in the forward line may be needed.
Liverpool should win on Thursday night to keep the pressure on the teams ahead of them. It should be a close game that goes down to the wire.
