Kick Off: 1500, 16/09/2017

Stadium: Anfield

Burnley boss Sean Dyche seems to have found a cure for last season’s travel sickness problems and will be eyeing a third positive result on the road this term when visiting Liverpool.

The Clarets have already pulled off a shock 3-2 win at Chelsea in the Premier League and snatched a last-gasp 1-1 draw at Tottenham.

This is another daunting trip but 14/5 for the visitors to avoid defeat is good enough value to make our Liverpool vs Burnley betting predictions.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds

Liverpool’s strong start to the campaign came to an abrupt halt when they were hammered 5-0 at Manchester City last weekend.

Sadio Mane’s 37th-minute red card obviously played a big part in that heavy defeat but City ruthlessly exposed the defensive deficiencies that plagued the Reds throughout much of last term.

Mane will now be suspended for this match, Philippe Coutinho may take time to fit back in and Wednesday’s return to the Champions League group stage will be another distraction.

Those factors make odds of 9/2 for a draw tempting enough to include in our Liverpool vs Burnley betting tips.

A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds

Burnley shouldn’t have an inferiority complex against Liverpool as they beat them 2-0 at home last season and led for much of the first half at Anfield until eventually going down 2-1.

The Clarets will return to Merseyside in good spirits following Sunday’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, with record signing Chris Wood making it two goals in two games for the club.

A shoulder injury suffered by highly-rated goalkeeper Tom Heaton is an obvious concern but Burnley coped for an hour after Nick Pope came on and are excellent at getting bodies behind the ball.

Looking at the Liverpool vs Burnley odds, 19/2 for a 1-1 draw takes the eye.

Robert Pires prediction: Liverpool 3-1 Burnley
