In the English Premier League, Liverpool will travel to play against Burnley away from home. Liverpool have been exceptional this season as they remain with a perfect record having won all 3 of their Premier League games. In their last outing, Liverpool defeated Arsenal 3-1.

During the draw, Burnley only had 34% of the possession but the team used the ball exceptionally well as they had more shots on target than Wolves.
