Liverpool vs. Burnley: The Reds Look To Get Back To Winning Ways After Arsenal Defeat

9th February 2024

Liverpool will attempt to get back in the column when they host in the at on Saturday (February 10).

Last Sunday (February 4), Liverpool suffered their first defeat in the Premier League since their 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur as they were bested 3-1 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

It was perhaps the worst performance from the Reds this season and they certainly weren't helped by the blunders produced by and as well as picking up a red card in the final minutes of the game.

Nevertheless, with the number of games Liverpool have in recent weeks, there is no time to sulk about the result as the next fixture is just around the corner as Liverpool now host a struggling Burnley side at Anfield.

The Reds won the reverse fixture at Turf Moor 2-0 thanks to goals from and in a controlled performance by 's side.

The German will be hoping for more of the same from his team who remain Premier League leaders but are just two points ahead of who possess a game in hand and could get on top of the table with a win.

There's no reason why Liverpool should get anything but three points against the 19th placed club as recent history dictates that the Reds have wholly dominated Vincent Kompany's side.

Liverpool have won their last four league games against Burnley without the opposition scoring a single goal.

Burnley did however, score a famous 1-0 win at Anfield in 2021 during Liverpool's colossal injury crisis this season, having won just three league games all season.

It'll be a tall order for the Clarets to gain anything from the game as Liverpool will surely be in an imperious mood to set last week's result straight.

LFC Globe Verdict 

It's not common that Liverpool lose games and with facing Burnley at Anfield next, it provides the perfect opportunity for Jurgen Klopp's side to return to winning ways.

The Premier League title race continues to heat up each week as the margin for error gets smaller and smaller as Manchester City continue to rack up three points.

With the power of Anfield and the quality Liverpool possess, I predict that they'll easily dispatch Vincent Kompany's side 3-0.
