Liverpool are expected to maintain the Premier League’s only 100 per cent record by winning at Turf Moor for the third straight season.
However, the Clarets have given the Reds a decent test here in recent years and are playing well enough to make their presence felt once again.
We’re going with 19/10 for an away win and both teams to score for our initial Burnley vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley suffered a disappointing EFL Cup loss to League One Sunderland in midweek, but Sean Dyche made wholesale changes for that clash.
His first-choice players have performed with far more credit this term, starting out with a 3-0 drubbing of Southampton at this venue.
Going down 2-1 at Arsenal was far from a disgrace and the Clarets then came within a whisker of upsetting Wolves at Molineux, only for Wanderers to snatch a 1-1 draw with a last-gasp penalty.
“Sometimes you get a bit drunk on it all because you are so close to three points – and we were,” Dyche told the club’s official site. “It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but it is still a good point.
“Everyone was talking about the tough start, but four points from the first three games is a good return, and it’s from three good performances as well.”
Ashley Barnes has been in fine form up front, netting four times in the top flight, so 5/2 for him to score at anytime catches the eye from the Burnley vs Liverpool odds.
Last Burnley EPL line-up: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Cork, Gudmundsson, McNeil, Westwood, Wood, Barnes.
Burnley will be without Johann Berg Gudmundssonn due to a calf injury. Fellow winger Robbie Brady has stepped up his recovery from a fractured rib but midfielder Steven Defour remains a long-term absentee.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool are playing with great confidence at the moment and Mohamed Salah’s brace helped them to see off Arsenal 3-1 at Anfield a week ago.
Another powerful, energetic performance helped the Reds to secure a 12th straight Premier League success, taking into account last season’s strong finish.
“We knew if we did the right things, played to our strengths, defended really well and were clinical in front of goal, then we’d hurt them,” Jordan Henderson told the club website.
“We managed to do that, so overall it was a really good performance and we’ve got to be delighted with the three points.”
However, last season’s meanest defence has yet to keep a clean sheet in five outings so far this term, including the Community Shield clash with Manchester City and Super Cup tussle with Chelsea.
Let’s finish off our Burnley vs Liverpool betting tips by taking 10/1 for a 3-1 away victory.
Last Liverpool line-up: Adrian, Van Dijk, Robertson, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker will again be missing as he recovers from a calf injury. Midfielder Naby Keita, who has not played since the Community Shield because of a hip/groin injury, is also absent.
