The Reds will be looking to continue their winning streak when they clash with the Clarets on Monday afternoon

Liverpool continue their campaign in the English Premier League on New Year's Day when they travel to Turf Moor to keep a date with Burnley.

Though the Reds are likely to be without their leading marksman, Mohamed Salah who limped off against Leicester City after scoring both goals that helped his side to a 2-1 win at Anfield, they will still be a huge threat up front.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will be hoping to replicate the form that saw them dispatch Swansea City 5-0 and then earn another hard-fought victory against the Foxes. They are in good stead to continue this fine form having won three of their last four away games.

Besides they boast of better stats on head to head with 31 wins in 72 games. Bet365 is offering (1.50) for them to leave Turf Moor with the maximum points.

19 of their previous 72 duels with the Clarets ended in stalemates and another one at the price of (4.50) will not be out of place.

Burnley have sprung up surprises in the top-flight this season with nine victories in 21 games which sees them sit in an impressive seventh place on the table.

However, they are winless in their last four outings and a chance for them to return to winning ways present itself at the odds of (7.50) with the same betting firm.

Not many goals will be expected here bearing in mind that the last five meetings between both sides produced just ten goals - averaging two goals per match.The bookmakers are backing under 2.5 goals at the price of (2.00).

Liverpool have registered the last goal in seven of their last nine duels and Bet365 is tipping them to repeat the same feat at an offer of (1.33).
