Burnley vs LiverpoolEnglish Premier League, KO: 17:30 Aug 31, 2019, Turf Moor
PREMIER League pacesetters Liverpool make the short trip to Turf Moor this weekend for a Saturday tea-time battle with Burnley.
The Reds have been flawless thus far in the league and the bookmakers expect that continue with a Liverpool win here odds on at 1/3 (Ladbrokes)
The Lancashire side were impressive in their last league outing at home when they cruised to a 3-0 victory over Southampton and since then Burnley can count themselves unlucky to only have come away with a point from tricky road trips to Arsenal and Wolves.
Sean Dyche's troops have delivered three typically spirited display thus far and possess one of the divisions in-form players in striker Ashley Barnes who has bagged four goals in three games.
Only Sadio Mane and Sergio Aguero have scored more top-flight goals than Barnes this calendar year, so given the frontmans fine form the 15/4 (Bet 365) on offer for him to strike anytime could be worth a flutter.
Furthermore, Liverpool's defence has looked fragile in the absence of injured goalkeeper Allison with the Merseysiders conceding in each of their last five matches in all competitions.
What's more under Klopp's stewardship Liverpool have never kept a clean-sheet against the Clarets and Dyche's dogged side have notably hit the net in 20 out of their last 24 Premier League fixtures.
Therefore, Burnley could pose Liverpool problems, however the Reds almost always score – they have done so in their last 20 competitive fixtures – so backing both teams to score at Turf Moor appeals at an enticing Evens (Betfred)
In considering who may get on the scoresheet for the scousers this weekend all of their famed front-three will be sure to come into consideration.
Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino done the damage in Liverpool's last away day – a 2-1 win over Southampton – and if you fancy either Mane or Firmino to strike again then they are 6/5 (Unibet) and 5/4 (BoyleSports) respectively.
However, it's the final member of Liverpool's formidable frontline, Mohamed Salah, who is leading the way for the European champions with three goals in three games.
The Egyptian king was in irresistible form at Anfield last Saturday night as he fired in a double to down Arsenal in a 3-1 home success .
Salah has somewhat surprisingly scored only once against Burnley in four Premier League encounters, but on the back of his sizzling start to the season I fancy the Liverpool talisman to add to his tally at a tempting 10/11 (BoyleSports)
Whether or not Salah scores remains to be seen, but if so it will more than likely help his side maintain their 100 per cent start to the season and claim a 13th consecutive Premier League victory.
However, as discussed above, the Clarets could make their mark in this contest and you can be rest assured that Dyche's warriors will roll up their sleeves in trying to contain and unsettle their star-studded opponents.
Be that as it may Liverpool's superior quality should see them overcome a stern test from Burnley, however the odds on Klopp's' side claiming all three points are not eye-catching.
Therefore, I'm going to revisit a market that generated profit for me when covering Liverpool last weekend and opt for an outcome that has landed in all three of the Reds league fixtures to date, namely, Liverpool to win and over 2.5 goals at 10/11 (BoyleSports)
