Burnley hosts Liverpool at the Turf Moor in a game from the 25th round of the Premier League. Here we go with our correct football prediction for this clash. Are you ready?
Burnley are still at the bottom of the Premier League standings after winning just one game out of 20 since the start of the season. Sean Dyche’s team is moving closer to relegation, but it still have a chance to survive – Burnley are just four points behind the 17th Newcastle United and the safe zone.
Right now Burnley are in a run of three consecutive draws in the league. In their last game Dyche’s boys hosted Manchester United and fought for the point after a 1-1 draw. United opened the score early, but in the 47th minute Jay Rodriguez equalised for the hosts.
Liverpool are still chasing the leader Manchester City. The Reds are currently second in the league with 51 points which puts them 9 points behind the Cityzens. They also have a game in hand – something they should use in their favour.
On Thursday Jurgen Klopp’s team achieved its third consecutive win in the league. The Reds hosted Leicester City at the Anfield and celebrated a solid 2-0 win. Diogo Jota became the hero of the game as he scored both goals for the hosts. Meanwhile Mohamed Salah return in play after his participance in the African Cup of Nations while the new signing Luis Diaz started the game and made his official debut.
That’s the correct football prediction for the Premier League fixture between Burnley and Liverpool on Sunday. The hosts are desperate for every point they can win right now, but at the same time the Reds are in the same position – they can’t afford any mistakes if they want to catch up with Manchester City. This is going to be an exciting game.
