Recent Form

Although Burnley are in a 10-team logjam in the middle of the table with a 1-1-1 record, the Clarets are certainly happy with how they have played. They have shaken off their disappointing 2018-19 campaign, and Burnley are looking to recreate their performance the year before that when they finished in seventh place.

Soccer Sports Betting

The Clarets smashed Southampton 3-0 in their opener with three goals in the span of 12 minutes midway through the second half. Ashley Barnes netted a brace, and Johann Berg Gudmundsson capped off the scoring. Burnley played well in a gritty 2-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates in their second match, and they nearly beat Wolverhampton on the road before an Erik Pieters foul in the box led to Wolves earning a draw seven minutes into extra time.

Liverpool have looked great in all three of their games. There was never much doubt in any of the three victories, as the Reds have outscored their opponents 9-3 on the year. Mo Salah has been great at home, notching three goals in wins over Norwich City and Arsenal.

The Reds lone road game to this point was on the road against little brother Southampton. Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane scored in the win, but former Liverpool forward Danny Ings scored in the final 10 minutes to make the end of the game interesting.

Notable Absences

Nathaniel Clyne is out until 2020 after tearing his ACL back in July. That loss stings, but two other injuries are hurting even more. Naby Keita continues to be sidelined by a hip injury and isn’t expected back until after the international break, and Alisson is going to miss a few more weeks with a calf injury.

Burnley won’t have Robbie Brady available due to some bruised ribs, while Steven Defour will be sidelined for another couple weeks with a lower leg injury. Johann Berg Gudmundsson is doubtful to play, but Danny Drinkwater has been cleared to return.

Liverpool Player to Watch

Adrian has played well in Alisson’s absence, and it’s not his fault that he has yet to register a clean sheet. Liverpool’s back line has allowed a surprising number of chances given the quality of center backs Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip, but Adrian has prevented Alisson’s injury from turning into a disaster.

Burnley Player to Watch

Ashley Barnes has had an impressive start to the Premier League season. Barnes has tallied in all three games for Burnley, scoring four of the club’s five goals. It’s clear that he is the leader up top after also leading the club in goals last season, and a potential result likely hinges on his performance.

The hosts are good enough to cover the Asian Handicap, but it’s going to be tough for them to pick up a result. Liverpool are just too strong, and it will be difficult for Burnley to shut them down in the back.
