Liverpool vs Burnley: Predicted lineup, injury news, head-to-head, telecast
To consolidate their lead in the league, Liverpool will aim to win this match
With 51 points, Liverpool are at the top of the Premier League this season. They’re on an unbeaten run of 18 matches at home this season. Jurgen Klopp, on the other hand, will be disappointed that the team lost its last match against their title rivals Arsenal due to the lack of concentration that cost the team three points. In spite of this, they’ll be trying to bounce back in this match with the Anfield atmosphere giving them an edge.
Having gained promotion from the championship, Burnley have struggled to establish themselves in the Premier League. With the team languishing in the 19th position, they face relegation unless their form improves this season. With seven points separating the team from the relegation zone, Vincent Kompany has a huge task at hand to make a positive impact on the season.

Player to Watch
Diogo Jota (Liverpool)
During this season, Diogo Jota has scored eight goals for the Reds and provided two assists for the team. Despite the absence of Mohammed Salah, he has done well to score goals for the team. After failing to score in the last match, he will be looking forward to scoring in this one as well.
Lyle Foster (Burnley)
His goal-scoring exploits and ability to create chances have made him one of the team’s most popular players. From 14 matches this season, he has scored 4 goals and contributed three assists to the team. In addition to scoring or creating chances for the team, he can be a nuisance for the opposition at times and is a typical striker who drifts in from the left side.
