On Thursday evening, the Reds will now have another chance to end the series of victories. The Clarets, who are in danger of relegation, are guests on Anfield Road. Although the odds of the best bookmakers are more than clearly pointing towards the defending champion before the kick-off of the match between Liverpool and Burnley, the favorites may well expect a tough test of patience.
Table of Contents
The reasons for this are pretty obvious, because during the LFC last three times in a row without their own hit stayed, the guests from the county of Lancashire conceded more than one goal in England’s top division for the last time at the end of November. Close results were regularly on the agenda for coach Sean Dyche’s team recently.
In this regard, we are clearly refraining from predicting a high home win between Liverpool and Burnley and are more likely to base our tip on the fact that the men from Merseyside will again have problems with being their own favorite.

Liverpool – Statistics & Current Form
Liverpool Football Club just doesn’t want to get going this season. While the defending champion was able to hide his own problems so well in the first third of the season that the top position was booked for many match days, the form curve recently showed a steep downward gradient.
From the last four matches, coach Jürgen Klopp’s team scored just three points. None of these four games were won; instead there was a disappointing 1-0 defeat by Southampton and three draws. Even more terrifying is the fact that Mo Salah and his colleagues three times in a row without a goal.
Should there not be a hit again on Thursday evening, the Reds would only be the eighth reigning champion in English first division history, who did not place the game device in the opposing case four times in a row.

Liverpool have been without a win in four games and goalless in three games
The LFC has succeeded in the 18 matches it has played so far only five times to mark more than two goals. Although the Klopp-Elf still scored the most goals of all Premier League clubs, the (statistical) arguments for the upcoming duel on Thursday outweigh the (statistical) arguments to play the odds on a maximum of two Reds goals again between Liverpool and Burnley.
On the one hand, the Clarets are a very deep and compactly defending opponent; on the other hand, the self-confidence and the form is currently not so pronounced that the fourth in the table could shoot a well-organized relegation candidate from his own stadium. Instead, there is a lot of hard work ahead of the 2019 Champions League winner, who nevertheless wants to maintain the so far flawless home record (seven wins, two draws) and keep up with the top.
The world coach of the year has to do without the injured van Dijk, Gomez, Keita, Tsimikas and Jota anyway.
Expected formation of Liverpool:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson; Henderson, Thiago, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Burnley – Statistics & Current Form
Burnley FC had to wait until the ninth game day before the first victory of the season in the Premier League could finally be celebrated. Although the long-awaited 1-0 win against Crystal Palace was followed by a bitter 5-0 swat against Manchester City only a few days after the long-awaited 1-0 win against Manchester City, the Clarets’ yield has been impressive since then.
Only three of the past eight games went from the point of view of coach Sean Dyche’s team namely lost. In all three bankruptcies, the tenth of the previous year drew the short straw with 0: 1, including in the only two competitive games to date in 2021, which were lost at home to Manchester United and West Ham United with the closest of all results. Thanks to at least eleven points collected in the period mentioned, the Weinroten improved to 17th place and are already four points ahead of the first relegation place.
Burnley: With nine goals to 16 points
The centerpiece of the club from the east of the English county of Lancashire is undoubtedly its own defense. With only 22 goals conceded, the Dyche-Elf even has one of the best defensive rows in the Premier League. First four teams have so far been able to defeat keeper Nick Pope three or more times. In the last eight encounters, a goal was the highest of emotions. So it’s no wonder that we’re giving our forecast in this direction between Liverpool and Burnley.
Another argument seems a bit surreal at first glance, as Liverpool could already be the fifth reigning champions that the Clarets beat in the following season. Manchester United 2009/10, Manchester City 14/15, Leicester 16/17 and Chelsea 2017/18 also bit their teeth on the defensive artists one season after winning the title.
The team of coach Dyche, which has so far managed to get four wins and a total of 16 points with only nine goals scored (!), Has hardly any losses to complain about on Thursday. Although there are one or two question marks, the extremely defensive and deep focus will of course not change.
Expected formation of Burnley:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Brady, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Barnes, Wood

Statistics highlights for Liverpool against Burnley
Wettbasis-Prognose & Liverpool – Burnley Tipp
The betting odds suggest a sovereign home win for fourth in the table. Even if the higher quality, the home advantage and the table situation would of course indicate a loose success of the Klopp-Elf, there are various reasons that advise against making a corresponding assumption.
The form is therefore not particularly good and the pressure is not reduced due to the broad competition in the top field of the Premier League.
Key-Facts – Liverpool vs. Burnley Tipp
- Liverpool only scored more than two goals in five of their 18 games
- Burnley has conceded a maximum of one goal in eight games since the end of November
- Only in two of the last ten home games have the Reds met Burnley more than twice
Because the Clarets are an opponent who has his strength on the defensive, conceded only 22 goals this season and only lost three of the last eight league games, we expect an unpleasant task for the Klopp-Elf.
The Weinroten will act from a defensive basic order and make life difficult for the LFC offensive. Since the end of November, keeper Pope has never had to reach behind him more than once in eight matches.
We therefore choose between Liverpool and Burnley for the Tip that the reigning champions will score a maximum of two goals. At the tested bookmaker Bet365, we get a 1.80 at the top, which is worth a stake of six units.
