Burnley vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 31 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Turf Moor (Burnley).
Despite getting off on the right foot in their opener with a 3-0 victory, the hosts have not been able to taste success ever since, and are currently on a two-game winless run. The home team played out a frustrating 1-1 draw in their most recent trip on the road against Wolves, while their only other matchup was a 2-1 defeat against Arsenal.
Liverpool have been strutting their stuff in the new campaign and are the only side in the table to collect maximum points from their games so far. Klopp’s men made fairly light work of the Gunners in their last clash at home and posted a resounding 3-1 scoreline at the end of the ninety minutes.
The Reds have certainly been asserting their superiority over their foes without breaking much of a sweat, and are likely to be too hot to handle for Burnley when they square up against each other in the weekend.

Burnley vs Liverpool Prediction
The Clarets have been struggling to pull off a win on the road for the past two weeks. Although home advantage will be up their sleeve in this one, the stature of the side that they will be taking on certainly overshadows everything else.
The visitors have admitted defeat just once in their last ten trips across all competitions. It also needs saying that Jurgen Klopp’s men have not been shy in racking up the goals tally and have slotted nine goals so far while conceding just thrice.
Furthermore, Burnley have emerged victorious on just two occasions in their previous meetings with Liverpool at this venue, with their last win coming in the year of 2016.
Taking into account that the visitors are on a formidable run at the moment and the fact that they have been coming out on top in their last two visits here as well, a defeat for Burnley is certainly imminent.
The away side have been leading at the break in each of their last three matches. Considering that there has been no dearth of goals in their previous clashes either, you can count on Liverpool to rack up over 2.5 goals on their own and to win both halves with ease.
