A special week in the Premier League (PL) win in the last round took Liverpool to 30 victories for the season (D2, L2), and they are still gunning for five different PL records: most points, most wins, most home wins, away wins, and biggest win margin (in points). Their perfect PL record at home remains intact, and the ‘Reds’ have scored 2+ goals in seven straight league matches here.
Four of Liverpool’s last five PL matches at Anfield have featured over 2.5 goals, and across this league season matches here have featured 3.41 total goals on average. Despite their total dominance, a clear majority of their home league games have seen both teams score (58.82%) – as have three straight H2Hs versus Burnley here.
Burnley, however, are enjoying a good run of their own (W3, D1) which has them hunting a European spot. Hard to break down, they’ve kept an impressive seven clean sheets across their last 11 PL outings (W6, D4, L1).
Holding on until HT appears key for the ‘Clarets’, as they’re yet to lose when in front at the break (W4, D3), and no team can match their tally of nine wins following a HT draw. Conversely, they’ve lost ten of the 12 matches in which they trailed at the interval.
Players to watch: Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has scored 15 of his 17 PL goals this season at home – he’s netted the final match goal in six Anfield games so far. Meanwhile, Jay Rodriguez has had a hand in three of Burnley’s last four goals (two goals, one assist).
Stat attack: Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool have been in front at HT in 13 of their 17 PL home wins, whilst 11 of those victories covered a -1.5 handicap.
Liverpool have won four straight H2Hs against Burnley, scoring 3.0 goals on average per fixture.
Burnley’s last five PL matches have averaged just 1.4 total yellow cards.
