What Trueform says for Burnley vs Liverpool
Liverpool got lucky when edging out Everton in the Merseyside derby but are still rated a cut above Burnley on our overall Trueform chart.
The Clarets have only picked up one point from their last six Premier League matches following Saturday’s comprehensive 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.
We’re expecting a tight tussle early on at Turf Moor but believe the Reds can eventually assert their authority on this clash.
That makes 29/10 for a draw at half-time and then the visitors to prevail a solid Burnley vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley were desperately out of sorts against a Palace side who had previously failed to score a single goal at home from open play this term.
Having finished a superb seventh last season, the Clarets now find themselves second from bottom in the Premier League table.
“We are in that strange position where the eye of the tiger has gone a little bit,” said Sean Dyche.
“Last year, everyone was on it, all of the time, and we showed no fear. We looked people in the eye and said, ‘you had better be ready, because we are’.
“These players have worked hard to achieve and play at this level. So, now it’s about taking it on, and I think there’s a fight in there.”
The Clarets do have the physical presence up front to test Liverpool and have scored in the last four head-to-head encounters.
If they are up for a battle, 31/4 for a 2-1 away win could prove value from the Burnley vs Liverpool odds, with that being the scoreline here on New Year’s Day.
Last Burnley line-up: Hart, Lowton, Taylor, Mee, Long, Cork, Gudmundsson, Hendrick, Defour, Lennon, Wood.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool looked set for a frustrating goalless draw against Everton until a Jordan Pickford blunder allowed Divock Origi to break the deadlock deep into stoppage time.
Pickford had earlier done well to deny Xherdan Shaqiri in the first half, but it was a scrappy performance from the title-chasing Reds.
Jurgen Klopp displayed his relief by running onto the pitch to celebrate with keeper Alisson Becker.
“Derbies are always difficult games but this was a completely different difficult to the last few years,” said the German.
“Both teams delivered a proper fight, a proper derby from the first second.”
Klopp will be hoping that one of his more regular match-winners does the business at Turf Moor and we’re looking for Sadio Mane to come to the fore.
The Senegal international opened the scoring here in January and 15/4 for him to repeat that feat completes our Burnley vs Liverpool betting tips.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
Crystal Palace 2-0 BURNLEY
LIVERPOOL 1-0 Everton – Divock Origi
Head-to-head: Burnley 1-2 Liverpool, Liverpool 1-1 Burnley, Liverpool 2-1 Burnley, Burnley 2-0 Liverpool
