Burnley are at an incredible price to come out successful in the match, but they are in a very difficult run that does not make them a good choice for a draw – let alone a victory. Liverpool do not have a great away record but they are vastly superior in terms of quality. Even if Liverpool are unable to make a sizeable difference on the pitch, they have enough quality to come up with a decent victory.

Burnley vs Liverpool draw odds: 5.75
Burnley win odds: 14.00
Correct Score odds
Liverpool may not have set the goal charts on fire like last season, but they have been much more prudent at the back. Virgil van Dijk has been one of Liverpool’s best players this season. Burnley have been struggling with a defence that allows opposition with a lot of chances at goal. Salah and Sadio Mane will be relishing such opportunities. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Liverpool.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The recent matches for Liverpool have been tight on goals – the three goals from Liverpool against Watford is the only time the Merseyside outfit have scored over the 2.5 goals in the last six matches. Due to the high volume of games expected over the next month, Liverpool will be making changes to the squad and this will limit their offensive impact. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Mohamed Salah was not given a sight at goal by Everton in the recent match but Burnley do not have the same capabilities. The Clarets have been poor defensively and this should give Salah with opportunities going forward. The Egyptian scored once in games against Burnley and our first goalscorer prediction would back the winger.
