15th in the Premier League with 12 points ahead of the relegation zone, Burnley is sure to evolve within the elite next year. During the last 4 days, the Clarets have alternated away victories and defeats at home. They won on the lawns of Wolverhampton 0-4 and Fulham 0-2 but on the other hand lost at home to West Ham 1-2 and Leeds last weekend 0-4.
Liverpool were plagued by numerous injuries during the second part of the season and find themselves, with 2 match days remaining, in 5th place in the Premier League.
With 1 point behind the Big 4, the Mersey club is not at all guaranteed to play the next Champions League. Eager to avoid this disappointment, the Reds have been on the rise for several weeks, as evidenced by the current series of 8 games without defeat 6 wins and 2 draws.
After a precious success acquired in the lair of rival Manchester United 2-4, they snatched victory at West Bromwich last weekend thanks to a goal scored by ... Alisson at the very end of the game 1-2.
Burnley still has to contend with the injury absences of important midfielder Brady and substitute defenders Bardsley and Long. Additionally, No.1 goalie Pope and midfielder Stephens are still uncertain. Last weekend, the defense of the Clarets took to the water. New Zealand striker Wood has scored 8 goals in the last 9 matches.
For this meeting, Liverpool are still weakened by the defections of tauliers van Dijk, Gomez and Henderson and substitute Matip. Moreover, the Reds are not sure they can count on substitutes Davies and Keita, winter rookie Kabak and experienced Milner. Last weekend, goalkeeper Alisson was the star in snatching the victory late in the game. Mo Salah is the Premier League's co-top scorer with 22 goals.
Burnley vs Liverpool Prediction
Burnley conceded at least 1 goal in each of their last 5 home matches.Over the course of their last 20 away matches at the top table of the Premier League, Burnley have been involved in just a single goalless draw.
Although Burnley have been far more prone to 0-0 draws, it is worth nothing that the deadlock has been broken at some point in seven of their last eight home games.
