The fixtures really are coming thick and fast at the moment.
After the thrilling 96th-minute win against our near-neighbours Everton, Liverpool are back on the road this Wednesday evening when they make the trip to take on Burnley at Turf Moor.
Burnley are on a bad run of form, at the moment, having taken just 2 points out of a possible 21 available and they’re not the same side as last season, a team that finished high enough to qualify for the Europa League qualifiers.
But it’d be foolish to underestimate any side managed by Sean Dyche.
Ahead of the fixture, we’ve taken a look at the prediction feature our former defender, Mark Lawrenson, has in the BBC and Lawrenson is of the opinion that Jurgen Klopps’ side will return to Anfield with the three-point son offer, winning 2-0.
However, the pundit, in his column, BBC, does have a word of warning for Liverpool, remarking:
“Turf Moor on a cold December night is still a test, no matter how badly Burnley are playing, but it is one I think Liverpool will pass.
“Reds boss Jurgen Klopp played 4-2-3-1 against Everton and brought Xherdan Shaqiri into the team. He could do the same here, but it looks like Roberto Firmino needs a rest, so Klopp might have to shuffle his pack a little to get the result he wants.”
A win is desperately needed to enable Liverpool to keep firmly on the heels of Manchester City and, for the record, I reckon we’ll get it, how about you?
