Liverpool vs Burnley Match Preview and Team News
Liverpool has dropped to fourth place in the Premier League after their weekend draw with Manchester United. They bid to get back into winning ways with a home game against 17th placed Burnley. Liverpool has gone four league games without a win, and that hasn’t happened since 2017. On that occasion, they went five without a win, so they will aim to prevent a repetition of that this week. They have only lost one of their last 14 league games, but three of their previous four league games have been drawn. It’s a much tighter Premier League this season, and the Reds can’t afford to keep dropping points. Scoring isn’t usually a problem for Liverpool, but it is at present with one goal in the last four and not one in the previous three. Georginio Wijnaldum plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Sadio Mane plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
Last season Burnley came away from Anfield with a point. They are nowhere near that kind of form coming into this game. Saturday saw them lose away at West Ham, their second successive league defeat. They are four points clear of the relegation zone but have a tough fixture list coming up. After this game, they have games against Aston Villa, Chelsea, and Manchester City, so that gap at the bottom could well narrow. Three of their last four league matches have ended in defeat, the other being a home win over bottom side Sheffield United. It’s not just Liverpool struggling to score at present, Burnley is too. However, their problems are long-term ones, with just nine league goals this season from 17 games. They’ve only scored one goal in their last four league games. Chris Wood is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
