    This is what Burnley boss Sean Dyche had to say in his pre match press conference:

    "A struggle in their world is slightly different to our world when you talk about goals.

    "You are talking about extreme levels of goals at times when they're really free flowing, themselves, Man City and the like.

    "When they're really on it they can score fine goals from different places.

    "Does that carry on forever, probably not even when you're the top sides, they probably have a quiet spell.

    "They have had some injuries as well we all know that to very important players.

    "They've got very good players across the board but there's still reasons why some of them players become the top players.

    "But no I'm not overthinking the fact that they may be not as free flowing because even when they're not I don't know if you noticed they're still up there, they're still winning [and] they're still delivering."

    Despite failing to find the back of the net since the 7-0 rout of Crystal Palace before Christmas, Mo Salah still leads the way in the race for the Golden Boot this season.

    Burnley meanwhile are struggling for goals, with top scorer Chris Wood netting just three times in the league so far this season.

    Liverpool have lost just one of their last seventeen home league games against Burnley (W11 D5), with that defeat coming back in September 1974 (0-1).

    Burnley have taken just five points from a possible 36 in Premier League games against Liverpool (W1 D2 L9), however the Clarets were the only visiting team to leave Anfield with a point last term.

  • Giacomo Pisa


    Joel Matip and Kostas Tsimikas ARE both included in the Liverpool matchday squad for tonight's game.

    Joel Matip has recovered from an adductor strain that has kept him out for the last four games, while Kostas Tsimikas is included in the squad for the first time since picking up a knee injury on December 9.

    The Clarets are just four points clear of the drop zone but have played a game less than Fulham before tonight.

    They're also just a point behind fellow strugglers Brighton who have played two games more than Sean Dyches's side.

    The Reds have slipped to fourth in the league after a poor recent run of form.

    Even a victory tonight would not see Liverpool move higher than fourth place.


  • Giacomo Pisa


    Since scoring with seven of their fourteen shots against Crystal Palace (50%), Liverpool have scored just one goal from 62 shots in their last four Premier League games, at a conversion rate of 1.6 percent.

    Mohamed Salah has failed to score in any of his last four Premier League games, with his current drought lasting 365 minutes.

    Only once has he gone longer without a goal for the Reds.

    Welcome to our live blog of Liverpool against Burnley in the Premier League. 

    The current champions are looking to end a run of three league games without a goal tonight, with the 0-0 draw against Manchester United on Sunday also being the first time in over two years the Reds have failed to score in the league at Anfield. 

    Jurgen Klopp’s side have also failed to register a league win in four games, their worst run since 2017.

    The Reds will be confident of ending those runs tonight with Burnley teetering just four points clear of the drop zone, and only winning four times in the league so far this season. 

    However Burnley were the only team to take points off Liverpool at Anfield last season with a 1-1 draw and will be hoping of a repeat again tonight. 

    In team news Joel Matip may return for Liverpool after missing four games with an adductor injury, although he is still a doubt. 

    That may mean skipper Jordan Henderson filling in at centre back again for the Reds. 

    For Burnley Dwight McNeil may return for the Clarets after missing two games with an injury, with Charlie Taylor also in contention to start tonight for Sean Dyche’s side.

    Kick off is at 8pm and team news is coming up in half an hour.
