Burnley vs Liverpool: Reds to maintain momentum

Kick-off: 2015, 19/07/2021

Stadium: Turf Moor

TV: Sky Sports

Liverpool will feel that the fates have begun to conspire in their favour as they chase down a Champions League place when visiting Burnley.

A dramatic win over West Brom kept them on course for a top-four finish and it is hard to see the Clarets throwing a spanner in the works at this stage.

With Mohamed Salah also going for Golden Boot glory, we like 5/6 for him to score in an away win as our first Burnley vs Liverpool prediction.

A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds

Burnley recently secured their survival with a 2-0 victory at Fulham but then suffered a third straight home defeat when losing 4-0 to Leeds at Turf Moor.

In fact, the Clarets have gone nine games without a win at this venue, with the absence of supporters seemingly hitting them harder than most sides.

Having 3,500 fans present for this fixture may at least inspire Sean Dyche’s men to up their game going forward.

“Our home fans do make a difference, as do the home fans for most teams,” Dyche said.

“A lot of teams are having difficult seasons at home compared to statistical norms and we’re one of them but I’m not going to overly question my players, there’s no lack of effort.”

A physical forward line of Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes, Jay Rodriguez and Matej Vydra may be able to put pressure on Liverpool’s inexperienced centre-back pairing.

The Clarets score the majority of their goals before the break, so 31/10 for both teams to net in the first half appeals from the Burnley vs Liverpool odds.

Last Burnley line-up: Peacock-Farrell, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Cork, Brownhill, McNeil, Westwood, Wood, Vydra.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds

Liverpool’s top-four hopes looked in tatters when they were held to a 1-1 draw at Anfield by Newcastle last month.

However, wins over Southampton and Manchester United got them back on track and Sunday’s 2-1 success at West Brom turned more doubters into believers.

Mohamed Salah cancelled out Hal-Robson Kanu’s opener and, just when all seemed lost again, goalkeeper Alisson Becker bagged an emotional decider deep into stoppage time.

That stunning goal came after the Brazil international lost his father, Jose, in a drowning accident in February.

“We are one big family – when one of us hurts, we all hurt and we all felt the impact of when his father sadly passed away,” said defender Andy Robertson.

“This team, I’ve said it time and time again – of course it was maybe when we were going for titles and things like that – but we just don’t know when to give up.

“We keep fighting, we keep going, we keep probing…it’s unbelievable.”

Just one clean sheet in six Premier League games highlights how the Reds may need to continue pushing for positive moments at the other end of the pitch, though.

Let’s add 11/4 for them to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 from the multiple correct score market to our Burnley vs Liverpool betting tips.

Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Robertson, Williams, Phillips, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Thiago, Jones, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
