Burnley vs Liverpool – Premier League: The schedule gets tight at the end of the year in England
The huge difficulties that each roster faces to present starting line-ups in good conditions to approach the 90 minutes of the match are starting to be felt.
Therefore, there is an increase on the uncertainty of results, but a decrease on the ability of the stronger teams to dominate, especially those that have some weaknesses (that is, those that aren’t named Manchester City).
That’s the scenario that Liverpool are facing, after having beaten Leicester City in the past Saturday.
The Reds have started trailing, with Jamie Vardy breaking the deadlock on the 2nd minute of the match, which ended up turning the match into a one-way affair.
With more possession and more shots, the team led by Jurgen Klopp only scored in the 2nd half, with Salah getting a brace and giving them the 3 points.
Liverpool is still in 4th place, and they need to maintain their winning streak not to let the other top 3 contenders escape.
The most beautiful storyline of the Premier League on this final stretch of 2017 is Burnley’s, that has been holding on amongst the great and powerful, having had their highlights on the win over Chelsea and the draw away at Manchester United.
When facing top teams from the Premier League, Sean Dyche’s team prefers to do it away from home.
The team feels, however, the weight of the packed schedule in December. Winless on their last 4 matches, Burnley have lost at home to Tottenham, having gotten draws against Brighton, Manchester United and Huddersfield.
Burnley vs Liverpool – Betting Tip and Prediction:
These are two teams with very different game ideas, practically opposite. Liverpool will have to avoid conceding goals early, again, even because the defensive resilience of Burnley will make their possibility of recovering really hard.
Jurgen Klopp will have, once again, to recur to his creative geniuses to get the 3 points.
