As newly-crowned champions, Liverpool host Burnley at Anfield, and it is in fact the visitors who enter Saturday’s clash in the better form. Sean Dyche’s side are unbeaten in their last four Premier League matches, conceding just a single goal in a draw against Sheffield United at Turf Moor.

The Clarets suffered a 5-0 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in their first game after lockdown, but the response has been commendable, to say the least.

As for Jurgen Klopp’s hosts, the champions have won just two out of their four Premier League matches since the restart, suffering a heavy defeat to City, much like their opponents.

In terms of potential outcomes, a Liverpool victory is most certainly on the cards, but Burnley will be keen to make life difficult for Klopp and his Reds.

There’s plenty of value in this one, despite the short odds for a home win. I fully expect the visitors to take the game to Liverpool. Therefore, odds of 17/10 (Coral) available on a home win and Both Teams To Score appeals.

Backing this up, in four out of five previous meetings between the pair, both teams have found the net. There’s a strong chance that we’ll see goals again in this one and so I’ll also take Liverpool to win and Over 3.5 Goals (33/20 Coral).
