Liverpool v Burnley betting tips: Reds eye revenge

| 19.08.2021

Liverpool v Burnley preview and odds

Liverpool will be aiming to continue their fresh start when they take on a Burnley side that ended their long unbeaten home run last season.

The Reds had a miserable defence of their Premier League title last campaign, finishing third, and a defeat to the Clarets triggered a six-match losing streak at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side looked reborn at Norwich last weekend and are 1/5 to gain some form of revenge in the Liverpool v Burnley betting tips.

Match Odds

Sean Dyche’s Burnley team stunned Liverpool to end their 68-game unbeaten streak on home soil in January and drew 1-1 at Anfield the season but normal service is expected to resume on Saturday.

The Reds looked back to their usual self at Carrow Road, winning 3-0, and were boosted by the return of talismanic defender Virgil van Dijk from injury.

Burnley, having not done much business in the transfer market yet again, were beaten at home by Brighton to suggest another gruelling campaign could be in the offing, leaving them 12/1 to secure a second consecutive win at Anfield and 11/2 for another draw.

Things do not get much tougher than away to Liverpool, with a home victory to nil 5/6 and the hosts to win both halves 27/20.

Mohamed Salah started the season in fine form, having a hand in all three strikes against Norwich, and a GetAPrice special for him to have five or more shots and there to be over 3.5 goals in the match is 9/4.

Liverpool are expected to be dominant in front of a full house for the first time since before the coronavirus pandemic and Salah and Diogo Jota to both have two or more shots on target is an option in Liverpool v Burnley betting tips at 6/5.

Talking Tactics

Klopp will have to decide whether to start Van Dijk again after helping keep a clean sheet or manage his workload having returned from a long absence.

The German may also opt to attack, having lost by one goal in this fixture last season, and bring in Roberto Firmino alongside Salah, Sadio Mane and Jota.

Burnley are unlikely to change their direct approach and Ashley Barnes, who netted the winner from the penalty spot in their shock win earlier this year, could be promoted to Dyche’s starting line-up.

Goalscorer Odds

Salah continued his prolific form in the Premier League with a goal and two assists against Norwich, with the forward 23/10 to net the opener.

Jota broke the deadlock in Norfolk and can be backed at 13/5 to repeat that feat, while Firmino has a fine record against Burnley.

The Brazilian forward has netted five goals in his last six games versus the Clarets and is 17/10 to bag in the early kick-off so is worth considering in Liverpool v Burnley betting tips.

Barnes to repeat his heroics of last season is 5/1 anytime.
