Liverpool vs BurnleyEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 Feb 10, 2024, Anfield
LIVERPOOL have had a week to lick their wounds after last week's defeat at Arsenal and have what looks like a penalty kick when Burnley visit Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp's men lost for only the second time in the league this season last Sunday with their only other defeat also coming in North London at Spurs back in September.
And while Mike Arteta's ludicrous celebrations were doubtless over the top, there's no doubt it was a real setback for Liverpool's title ambitions with champions Manchester City breathing down their necks.
They may yet be boosted by the return of Mo Salah after the African Cup of Nations and a hamstring injury ruled him out for a month. However, key playmaker Dominik Szoboszlai was missed against the Gunners and will be out for a few weeks.
They face a Burnley side who continue to collect valuable points in their fight against the drop with the latest a draw against Fulham after battling back from two goals down.
However, Vincent Kompany's men still look doomed after just three league wins all season and are currently seven points adrift from safety having played a game more than Luton Town too.
How the bookies view it
Liverpool are as short as 1/9 in places, but you can get 1/6 with bet365
Recent head to heads
Liverpool had a few scares before putting Burnley to bed on Boxing Day with a 90th minute goal securing a 2-0 win.
Burnley won at Anfield three years ago but since then have lost all four games without scoring a goal.
Players to watch
Darwin Nunez was only a sub at Arsenal but could get the nod to start on Saturday and is 17/20 with 888sport to score anytime and add to the 16 goals he has scored for club and country this season.
David Datro Fofana made quite an introduction to the Turf Moor faithful by scoring twice on his home debut last week against Fulham from the bench. The on loan Chelsea striker is 23/4 to score anytime with UniBet.
Anything else catch the eye?
Liverpool had a rare off-day at Arsenal last week, They were lethargic and second best and that's unlike them. But they can be forgiven a bad day at the office and they should return to business with the minimum of fuss against a limited Burnley side.
The obvious call here is a Liverpool win to nil at evens with Betfair. Although Burnley did score at Manchester City the other week in a 3-1 defeat, it was with the last kick of the ball and it's hard to see Liverpool defend as badly again as they did last week.
But Burnley are no mugs defensively and rarely get hammered. Liverpool would settle for any kind of win so go for a Liverpool success and under 3.5 goals at 6/4 also with bet365.
