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.

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

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


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
