Following Liverpool’s 0-0 draw against league leaders Man Utd, the reigning Premier League champions have now gone three Premier League games without scoring a goal and four league matches without a win.
Manager Jurgen Klopp simply has to find a solution against a notoriously resolute Burnley, or their defence of the Premier League will become even harder than it already is.
The Clarets managed a 1-1 draw at Anfield last season and will no doubt prove difficult to break down, but Liverpool have a good record against Sean Dyche’s side having scoring 11 goals in their last four fixtures vs Burnley.
With the frustration of not being able to score against Man Utd eating away at them, this should prove to be the fixture where it finally clicks for Klopp’s side as they take out their recent frustrations on the visitors, winning this one by at least two clear goals.
