Liverpool – Burnley
Liverpool hosts Burnley in a match from the fifth round of the English Premier League. We are going to offer you our football betting predictions for the clash at the legendary Anfield Stadium.
There’s some pressure on Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp’s shoulders at the moment. The German manager is in deep waters after the 0-5 loss against Manchester City and the 2-2 draw against Sevilla in the Champions League. There are some fans who already want from him to leave the club, which is not good in the beginning of the season.
Right now The Reds are at 8th place in the Premier League, having won 7 points so far. They are on just three points behind the leader Manchester United, but despite of that Klopp has his reasons to feel worried. We can’t say that Liverpool are playing their best football at the moment and we all saw this in their last two matches in the Premier League and the Champions League.
As for Burnley, they are currently 7th in the standings – with one position above Liverpool. Burnley also won 7 points so far, which is surprisingly good from them so far. Just like Liverpool, they have 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss since the start of the new season. In their last game Burnley beat Crystal Palace with 1-0 at home.
Liverpool will be without the suspended Sadio Mane in this game, while Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne are injured. Good news are that Mammadou Sakho is fit and ready to return on the pitch.
As for Burnley, they can’t use the injured Tom Heaton, Nahki Wells and Dean Marney, while Jeff Hendrick is still doubtful with a thigh injury.
These are our football betting predictions for the match between Liverpool and Burnley. Can Liverpool return on the winning way?
