Liverpool vs Burnley
English Premier League
Date: Thursday, 21 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Anfield, Liverpool.
Reigning Premier League champions Liverpool FC are going through a rough period in the last couple of weeks. Klopp’s side has failed to secure one single victory in the last four divisional games. Duels vs WBA, Newcastle and Manchester United ended without winner, while Reds got defeated at St Marry’s against Southampton.
They are no longer table leaders but slipped to 4th place with 34 points total. Can Liverpool finally return to winning ways this Thursday against table strugglers Burnley? Anything but a home win at Anfield would be marked as a massive upset. LFC to win at the moment is offered at very low 1.16 odds, so we are forced to look up some more profitable alternatives.

Liverpool vs Burnley Prediction
Last weekend’s derby match against Manchester United has ended without goals even though both sides had colossal chances. The Reds were more dominant in the first half, Red Devils in the second so draw is a fair outcome. It’s been a while since Klopp’s side has been struggling to score. They have bagged only one goal in the last four games! Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are miles away from last season’s form when they easily carried LFC to the title.
Liverpool’s injury list has been lengthy for months now. Keita, Matip, Gomez, Van Dijk, Tsimikas and Diogo Jota are all sidelined and unable to help. As for the opposition, Burnley are occupying 17th place with 16 points total, just four above the relegation zone. They are also in poor shape lately, getting defeated in three out of last four outings and scoring only one goal. We will back hosts to win the encounter and to keep a clean sheet.
