Burnley Form & Team News

Burnley have had a quietly good start to their campaign. They defeated Southampton 3-0 at Turf Moor on the opening game of the season and were unlucky to draw away at Wolves last week. The Clarets conceded a penalty in the last minute of the game. In between those two games they suffered a narrow loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. 

The Clarets have won three of their last five games at Turf Moor, with their defeats coming against top six opposition Man City and Arsenal. They did suffer a surprise 3-1 defeat at the hands of Sunderland this week, but they did field a very different 11 to the one that will play against Liverpool. 

Ashley Barnes has been a key figure for Burnley so far this campaign. The striker has scored four goals in three Premier League games so far. He is likely to lead the line with Chris Wood once again against Liverpool. Wood has yet to hit the net for the Clarets. 

Sean Dyche’s team are not favoured to win the match. They are currently priced at odds of 9.50 with bet365 to pick up the victory.

Liverpool Form & Team News 

Liverpool are the only team in the English Premier League to have won all three of their opening games so far. 

Jurgen Klopp’s men have not missed a beat from last season and have scored nine goals in their opening three games. Their last game saw them defeat Arsenal 3-1 at Anfield. Joel Matip grabbed the opening goal before a brace from Mohamed Salah saw off the Gunners. 

The Reds are unbeaten in 20 Premier League matches. They have won their last 12 Premier League matches, with the last points they dropped coming at the start of March. The trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino have been deadly in those games and all three are likely to start against Burnley. 

Liverpool are heavy favourites to pick up the victory on Saturday. They are priced at 1.30 with bet365 to win the match. There is better value available on them winning the match in the handicap market. They are priced at 1.95 with a -1 handicap. 

Burnley vs Liverpool Match Analysis - Liverpool make it four from four 

Liverpool are one of the best teams in the world right now and they have started this campaign incredibly strongly. They brushed aside Arsenal with a confident performance last week and they should not struggle too much to do the same to Burnley. 

Sean Dyche’s men have been resilient so far but Liverpool is going to be one of the toughest games for every team in the Premier League this year.

Burnley vs Liverpool Betting Tips -  Handicap market backed 

Liverpool are clear favourites to win this match so the best option here is to take a look in the handicap market. Liverpool have won with a -1 handicap in seven of their last nine matches and Burnley should be easy pickings for Klopp’s men. 

They are available at 1.95 to win the match with a -1 handicap with bet365 and that is my tip for the encounter.
