Burnley have been pretty decent here in 2021, but they might just have a bit too much on their plate this Wednesday, as they take on an up start Liverpool side at Anfield.
This Burnley team has defended quite well this year allowing just 51 goals this year, and they needed that defensive record in order to survive in the top flight, as they were one of the worst offensive teams in the league scoring only 33 times which is under 1 goal per game.
You do wonder how bad it could have been if Chris Wood was not on the roster, as the Kiwi was able to put up 12 goals this season which is mighty impressive given the environment he was on, as Burnley spent a ton of time in their own half.
Burnley were firmly beaten last time out against Leeds United who defeated them by a score of 4-0 and although that scoreline looks pretty bad, they were competitive in that game and realistically the final score line should have been much closer for the chances Burnley did create.
Look for head coach Sean Dyche to line this team up in a traditional 4-4-2 formation with Matej Vydra and Chris Wood up front, but do not look for the strikers to do much here, as Burnley will once again be pinned in their own half for the vast majority of this game, as they will need to catch Liverpool on the break in order to score.
This has been a down year for Liverpool, as they have been unable to retain their crown, but if they are able to get a top 4 spot it will be considered a huge win considering where they were just a month ago.
This top 4 opportunity has only really become a reality over the last couple weeks, as they have managed to win all of their last 3 games which included a 4-2 win over their bitter rivals Manchester United.
Their last game was much less convincing, as it looked like they were well on their way to a disappointing tie against West Brom, but their keeper Allisson Becker came up with a goal in the 95th minute to keep this Cinderella story alive.
With all that is at stake for Liverpool this Wednesday, you have to expect we will see their very best, and Burnley represents a matchup they should win quite easily, but as proven in their last game, you cannot take anyone lightly in the Premier League, as all of these teams have the quality to win if the opposition does not show up with their A-game.
Free Burnley vs Liverpool FC EPL Prediction:
Liverpool should be able to put up plenty of goals on this Burnley side, as we should see them come out and play to the best of their ability which is head and shoulders above Burnley at this moment.
Liverpool are better at home as well even without fans in the stand, and if they are able to score early, we will see Burnley being forced to open up and that very well could open the flood gates for this Liverpool front three.
On the other hand, Liverpool have not been great at the back because of their injuries, and so I do think it is possible we see Burnley get on the board here which will greatly help this game get over the 3.5 goal total which is currently being offered at -125.
