Liverpool vs Burnley English Premier League Match Preview & Prediction

Last meeting: Liverpool 2-1 BurnleyThe last meeting between the two sides was back in March when Liverpool secured a 2-1 victory at Anfield after going 1-0 down. They had already won at Chelsea and drawn at Tottenham Hotspur.

Much of the summer was spent debating how Liverpool would cope without Philippe Coutinho in the event of a prospective move to Barcelona.

The defending continues to undermine everything. "We need to enjoy the job, because that's what Burnley are doing". He is perhaps still lacking match fitness after recovering from a bad back.

6 - Jurgen Klopp made seven changes to the side that drew 2-2 with Sevilla in midweek. The recurring saga of failing to do well at the back and dropping precious points against relatively weak teams is something that must be infuriating for both the fans and the players.

A big header from Robbie Brady found its way to Scott Arfield, who put it past Mignolet to give Burnley a 1-0 lead. Left badly exposed for the goal, but he's no doubt used to that by now. Never really looked comfortable dealing with the aerial power of Chris Wood. There were times when he tried to play through balls through a closed gap, or looking to shoot when a pass would have been more appropriate.

You could argue Pope should have done better for Salah's goal but that could be considered harsh following a respectable performance in challenging circumstances.

He leaves one of our most expensive transfers on the bench for James Milner. Their keeper made a few outstanding saves. Philippe Coutinho had six, none even finding the target. Daniel Sturridge had seven attempts.

FW Roberto Firmino, 6 - The Brazilian is never as effective when deployed in wide areas but his work rate and close control drew applause from the crowd on several occasions. You would be really surprised.

The 31-year-old was taken off in the 36th minute after being treated on the pitch for several minutes. Mohamed Salah read the delivery perfectly, unlike Stephen Ward and Ben Mee who backed off and allowed the Egypt worldwide to control and steer a fine low finish beyond Pope.

After the Palace match at Turf Moor, Dyche said he expected Heaton to be out of action for months and, asked if that was still the case, the Burnley boss said Thursday: "Yes, It won't be weeks, it will be a longer period".
