Jurgen’s Klopp message to his players will be centred on the need to avoid any further drop in points, as a drop here will surely damage the Reds’ chances of catching and overtaking Manchester City in the race for the title.
The last time Liverpool played a league game at Anfield it resulted in a 5-0 walloping of Watford, with the win coming after a disappointing 0-0 draw against an injury-ravaged Manchester United side in the previous league game.
The Reds will thus be looking to borrow a leaf from that impressive performance last time out on this ground, having drawn 0-0 against cross-town rivals Everton last weekend.
Owing to the fact the home side look set to throw caution to the wind in this game to ensure victory, plenty goals can be envisaged in this clash on Sunday, as the visitors will also come into this one looking to catch their opponent on the break.
And an outcome that sees Liverpool win with three or more goals coming out of the encounter is going for spicy odds of (1.50) with the same betting company. This outcome paid out in three out of the previous four meetings between these two sides.
One out of their previous three matches ended in a one-all draw. Another draw at the end of regulation time in this one is offered at (7.70) odds.
Burnley are definitely no pushovers and they will be happy to play as underdogs with an intention to surprise their opponent at the end of proceedings as they did recently against Manchester United at Old Trafford and against Tottenham at Turf Moor.
