Burnley vs LiverpoolEnglish Premier League, KO: 17:30 Dec 26, 2023, Turf Moor
LIVERPOOL suffered frustration for the second league game in a row when they had to settle for a draw with table toppers Arsenal.
And they will be desperate to get back to winning ways when they travel to Lancashire to meet a Burnley side who will be full of confidence.
Jurgen Klopp saw his side fight back from a terrible start to draw with Arsenal at Anfield although it came at a cost. Left back Kostas Tsimikas will now be out for months after a freak injury broke his collarbone and with Andy Robertson also injured, it's a major problem for Liverpool.
They've not quite been at their best in the league recently and have only just beaten the likes of Fulham and Crystal Palace so this will be no penalty kick
Especially as Burnley surely bust a few coupons with a win at in-form Fulham after an impressive 2-0 success.
They are still second bottom and have the worst home record in the league with just one win and eight defeats at home, but that victory in London should give them plenty of hope and they also dug out a good point at Brighton recently.
How the bookies view it
Liverpool are as short as 1/3 in places although there is a spot of 2/5 around with bet365.
Recent head to heads
Liverpool won home and away last season without conceding a goal.
Liverpool have in fact won on their last five visits to Turf Moor since a 2016 loss.
Players to watch
French midfielder Wilson Odobert is showing plenty of promise with the 19-year-old netting his fourth goal of the season at Fulham at the weekend. He is 5/1 to score anytime with UniBet.
Cody Gakpo is on a respectable level of eight goals for club and country so far this season and netted for Liverpool in a midweek League Cup romp against West Ham last week. He is 41/20 to score with the same firm.
Anything else catch the eye?
This could be a tricky evening for a Liverpool side who have eight players missing for this including the likes of Robertson and Tsimikas as well as Joel Matip, Thiago, Diego Jota and Alexis Mac Allister all out and Luis Diaz 50/50.
They should have just about enough quality to squeeze through against a Burnley side with a strange aversion to playing at home.
Go for a Liverpool win by one goal at 3/1 with bet365.
Burnley have not seen a game with over 2.5 goals for their last four games and it's two for Liverpool. So go for under 2.5 goals here at a big price of 9/5 with 10bet.
