Burnley vs Liverpool: Why Liverpool could be defeated by the Turf Moor outfits



The Reds travel to the Turf Moor stadium to tackle Burnley in a very important clash. The Reds are yet to be defeated after 14 matches and they will be hoping to extend their impressive Premier League record later tonight.

Having scored 27 and conceded just 6 goals, Jurgen Klopp’s men are favourite to win the tie, nonetheless, Burnley have greater chances of picking up maximum points.

Are you surprised to hear that?, don’t be too shocked because here are some reasons why the Anfield outfits could be defeated by the ‘underdogs’

Pressure to keep up with City’s pace

Manchester City recorded their seventh consecutive victories last night when they thrashed Watford by three goals to one (3-1)

The Citizens have been in fine form so far this season and they are the only team, alongside Liverpool, who are yet to taste defeat in the League.

Having seen Manchester City — their fiercest and closest rivals in the race for the title — maintained their unbeaten record, Klopp’s men would be hoping to do the same.

They would be under intense pressure to get past Burnley later tonight and that offers the home side the best opportunity to stun the Merseyside team.

Salah, Mane and Firmino’s current form

If there’s one thing that Burnley should be thankful for heading into tonight’s clash is that Liverpool’s strikers are all out of form.

The Reds strikers haven’t been scoring goals as they did throughout last campaign.

Though they’ve managed 18 goals within themselves, their current display is saying otherwise and that’s a great motivation for Burnley to come all out for maximum points.

Burnley’s survival is at stake

The home side are in a situation where every point matters so much and they can’t afford to drop any against the Reds.

They currently occupy the 19th position with nine points, same points with Southampton and Fulham who are in the 18th and 20th place respectively.

A win will see them move up to the 17th position above Huddersfield Town, who lost 2-1 to Bournemouth in Tuesday’s encounter.

Pressure to maintain unbeaten record

Being under pressure to maintain their unbeaten run, the Reds could embark on a mission to get quick goals.

Should Burnley survive the Reds’ early attacking moves, they stand a great chance of taking the lead and equally protect it throughout the encounter.

However, defeating an in-form Liverpool side will be a very difficult but achievable task for the home side in tonight’s encounter.

Should the Reds eventually win the clash as predicted by many bookmakers, they will be on 39 points, two points behind Manchester City.
