Liverpool will look to put their Premier League title defence back on track when Burnley arrive at Anfield this Thursday.
Currently on a winless run of four games in the top flight, scoring just once in that run, it’s fair to say that Liverpool have hit a blip.
The Reds’ recent goalless draw with Manchester United ended an incredible run of scoring in 42 Premier League home matches in a row. That said, Liverpool are still on a 68-game unbeaten Premier League streak at Anfield.
If Liverpool’s goalscoring form is a concern, then the sirens would have been sounding over at Turf Moor. Burnley have scored a meagre nine goals in 17 league games this season – the top fight’s lowest total.
The Clarets have scored just one goal in their last seven away games, and that was an own-goal. Sean Dyche’s side’s only away league win this season came at the Emirates Stadium, with five defeats and three draws elsewhere.
Liverpool defender Joel Matip could return from injury tonight, but Diogo Jota continues to sit out for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Charlie Taylor could return for Burnley, but Jimmy Dunne and Bailey Peacock-Farrell look set to be absent for the Clarets.
