lpool1718Liverpool and Burnley lie side by side in the early season English Premier League standings as they prepare for Saturday’s clash at Anfield

 

 

Liverpool Stats:

Liverpool have 7 points from 4 league outings and last week they were beaten for the first time in the league this season, crashing 5-0 away to Manchester City

Liverpool have won both of their home league fixtures this season with a clean sheet, beating Crystal Palace (1-0) and Arsenal (4-0).

Corners have been thin on the ground in the 2 home games with Liverpool winning the count 4-2 against Palace and 4-3 against Arsenal

Of the 4 league games, 3 have seen at least 4 goals scored

Sadio Mane was sent off in the defeat at City and will start a 3 match ban here

In midweek Liverpool drew 2-2 at home to Sevilla in their first Champions League group match with Firmino missing a penalty

Burnley Stats:

Burnley also have 7 points from 4 matches and they are 1 place above Liverpool in seventh spot after a 1-0 home win over Crystal Palace last weekend.

Burnley have already upset 2 of the elite clubs away from home this season, winning 3-2 at Chelsea on the opening weekend and then drawing 1-1 at Spurs

They lost the corner count at Chelsea 8-5 and at Spurs 10-7

Burnley keeper Tom Heaton injured a shoulder in the win over Palace and is expected to be out for some time

Record signing Chris Wood came off the bench to score a late equalizer at Spurs and he marked his full debut with the only goal in last weeks win over Palace

The Betting

Match Result:

Liverpool 3/10

Draw 5/1

Burnley 10/1

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

The match result prices pay little respect to Burnley’s results away to Chelsea and Spurs but if they are missing a very useful keeper they could come unstuck here. Even without Mane Liverpool have so many attacking options that 3 goals or more is always worth considering.

Bet: Liverpool total goals, 3 or more at 11/10
