Football Prediction – Liverpool vs Burnley

Liverpool and Burnley battle in gameweek two in front of faithful Reds fans filling up Anfield Stadium on Saturday lunchtime. After recording contrasting results in their 2021-22 Premier League season openers, here is their match’s football prediction – Liverpool vs Burnley.

Last weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s side cruised to a 3-0 win over Norwich City (the football news).

Meanwhile, the Clarets lost 2-1 at home by Brighton & Hove Albion amidst every divisive football prediction.

Team news

Liverpool

  • Jordan Henderson and Thiago both got minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Aston Villa on Sunday. So, they are nearing a first-team return.
  • Fabinho was surprisingly only on the bench against Norwich last weekend. But Klopp will undoubtedly recall him to the starting lineup here.
  • With Andy Robertson still recovering from ankle ligament damage, it seems Kostas Tsimikas will continue playing at left-back.
  • Diogo Jota, who scored against Norwich on the opening weekend, should thus keep his place in the starting lineup here.

Liverpool possible starting lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Fabinho, Keita, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Burnley

  • Burnley are still without Dale Stephens and Kevin Long ahead of Saturday’s trip to Anfield, and will surely miss them.
  • Following last weekend’s defeat to Brighton, Ashley Barnes, Matej Vydra, and Josh Brownhill are all vying for starting positions.

Burnley possible starting lineup: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Rodriguez

Football Prediction – Liverpool vs Burnley

  • Liverpool’s opener was a 3-0 away victory over Norwich, the same score with which they last defeated Burnley (football results).
  • For their EPL season opener, Burnley led Brighton 1-0 early on, but they soon lost 2-1.
  • However, Liverpool have not been able to beat Burnley in their last two visits to their own home ground, Anfield. Plus, Burnley have scored in each of their last three away games against Liverpool.

Burnley will remember their recent trip to Anfield fondly, with their victory on Merseyside marking the start of Liverpool’s rut.

However, such lightning is unlikely to strike twice because this time, Liverpool fans will gather in force on home grounds.

This season, Klopp’s team has their sights set on the prize. They will expect to march to a confidence-boosting win before hosting Chelsea, which is exactly what they should do.

Our Prediction: Liverpool 2-0 Burnley
