With no European commitments this week, the Reds have had time to recalibrate their charge for the summit but are unable to regain first place due to City's 3-1 win over Watford on Saturday.
Sean Dyche meanwhile looked to have rescued the Clarets from the immediate threat of a bottom three spot before two losses on the trot threw them back onto the cusp of a relegation battle and their manager knows that another win will go a long way to helping them pull clear.

Betting & Match Odds
Liverpool are the odds-on favourites to take the three points and are priced at 1/6 with bet365. Burnley
With their lead of the Premier League relinquished to current champions and main rivals Manchester City, Liverpool
The Reds were unable to get the better of fellow Merseyside outfit Everton in their derby clash last weekend and saw their grasp on the summit slip away.
Now, with City having beaten Watford earlier this weekend, the psychological onus to remain within immediate touching distance falls to Jurgen Klopp’s side as they prepare to host Burnley.
One figure who has drawn a blank in recent games is Mo Salah, with the talismanic forward having now gone four matches without finding the back of the net.
His manager, however, remains unworried about the barren streak and sees no reason to change tack.
“We have very often talks and everything and, of course, when you are a striker or offensive player and you have chances in a game, you want to score with them, that’s clear,” the German stated.
“But, as a manager, I’m more than used to that, that players don’t score all the time, so that’s how it is. He has an unbelievable record, that’s all. His goals brought us where we are - not only [his goals], but a big part of it.
“So no, we didn’t really speak about it or whatever because it’s completely normal. We have to create chances and as long as we do that… in a very difficult game against Everton for different reasons, I would say we had four or five proper chances.”
Sean Dyche will be hoping that Salah does not resolve his issues imminently however, with the Clarets boss looking to pick up
Having produced big wins against Brighton and Tottenham to initially pull clear in a congested lower half of the table, defeats to Newcastle and Crystal Palace have thrust Burnley back towards the drop.
As such, they will be keen to spring an upset against the Reds and snatch a vital three points in their quest to remain in the top flight.
