Liverpool vs Burnley Betting Preview – 10/03/2019

Liverpool vs Burnley

Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side can return back to winning ways this Sunday when they take on Burnley at Anfield. Liverpool had found themselves comfortably ahead of Manchester City in the table, but a month of shaky form has allowed City to move up into first place with a one-point lead. Burnley have not been in the best of form recently, but they have been known to cause problems for big sides with them claiming points against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping for a repeat result of when these sides first met this season which saw Liverpool take all three points with a 3-1 win.

Liverpool have been fantastic all season, but their form has started to dip just when they need it to be at its strongest. The Reds head into matchday 30 sat in second place, trailing Manchester City by a single point. The hosts dropped into second after recently drawing to Everton 0-0, which marked the third game they have drawn in their last five fixtures. The other two games ended in wins for Jurgen Klopp. The hosts are clear favourites for this fixture with odds of 1/6 with SkyBet, however, if you fancy their chances then Liverpool to win with a -2 handicap sits at 5/4.

The Reds continue to hold the best defensive record in the league, with just one loss on their record and just 15 goals conceded in 29 games. Despite only winning two of their last five games, they have been remarkably strong with them not conceding a single goal during their last five games. You can back them to keep another clean sheet, with SkyBet for a price of 4/6. Sadio Mane has provided four goals in his last five games for Liverpool and can be backed to score anytime with Betway at a price of 4/5. The Reds scored three goals when they last went up against Burnley and Bet365 have them priced at 8/11 to score over 2.5 goals.

It has been a tough season for Burnley and they enter game 30 sat in 16th place, just five points clear of the relegation zone. The Clarets had been enjoying an unbeaten run of four games which had seen them draw to Manchester United and beat Tottenham Hotspur, but they head into this game off the back of two losses. Their most recent loss came against Crystal Palace who beat them 3-1. If you fancy Burnley to cause an upset this weekend then they can be backed with SkyBet at a price of 14/1.

With Burnley going up against a front three of Salah, Mane and Firmino this weekend they look set to concede, but last time they met they managed to bag a goal fo their own with the result ending 3-1. Bet365 has both teams to score again priced at 6/5. Ashley Barnes has bagged nine goals for his side this season and tends to provide their main threat on the attack. Betway has the forward to score priced at 7/2.
