Liverpool and Burnley face off on Thursday in a key English Premier League showdown at Anfield.
Liverpool currently sits in 4th place in the standings with 34 points picked up so far this season. Liverpool had a chance to take a big step forward in the last game against Manchester United, but they couldn’t find a way to put any goals in the back of the net and that led to the loss. This is a team that just a month ago looked like they might run away with the Premier League, but so much has changed. On the season, Liverpool has 37 goals in the back of the net while the defense has given up 21 goals total. Mohamed Salah has been the best player for Liverpool putting 13 goals in the back of the net.
On the other side of this matchup is Burnley who currently sit in 17th place in the standings with 15 points so far this season. Burnley currently sits four points clear of the relegation zone. Burnley’s biggest issue this season has been with their offense and if their offense was just a little better, they would find a lot more success so far this season. Each of the last two games Burnley has lost 1-0. In the last game against West Ham, Burnley gave up a goal in the 9th minute and that even though they had 56 percent of the possession, they couldn’t get any offense going.On the season, Burnley has put nine goals in the back of the net while their defense has given up 22 goals total. Burnley’s best offensive player has been Chris Wood.
Burnley’s defense has been good and that will be the case again in this one. I still think Liverpool will probably find a way to score a goal but that will be it. Back the under to cash in this game.
