Anfield, Liverpool, England
Key Stat: Liverpool's home Premier League unbeaten run stretched to 68 consecutive matches at the weekend.
Expert Verdict: A drab draw last time out means Liverpool are now without a win in their last four Premier League matches and have not scored in their last three. Nevertheless, the champions are at Anfield and, as ever, big favourites for the match at home to a Burnley team themselves lacking goals.
Following their bore draw with Manchester United last time out, Liverpool will look to get back to winning ways when they host Burnley at Anfield. The champions are now off the pace of the league leaders and need a win against the 17th-placed Clarets to get back on track. The match takes place on January 21 and the live action starts at 20:00 local time.

Burnley have won just one of their 12 Premier League matches against Liverpool but they did draw on their last trip to Anfield – one of the results that ultimately stopped Liverpool reaching the 100-point milestone last season. A Chris Wood own goal, and strikes from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino secured a 3-0 Liverpool win at Turf Moor earlier in the season. At Anfield, however, Jay Rodriguez cancelled out Andy Robertson’s opener. Here are the results of the last five matches:
Jul 11, 2020: Liverpool 1-1 Burnley
Aug 31, 2019: Burnley 0-3 Liverpool
Mar 10, 2019: Liverpool 4-2 Burnley
Dec 05, 2018: Burnley 1-3 Liverpool
Jan 01, 2018: Burnley 1-2 Liverpool
Liverpool are huge odds-on favourites to win at home to Burnley and can be backed at 1/5 with 10Bet and Betway.
With Liverpool lacking goals, Burnley could be in for a backlash. If they are, over 2.5 goals can be backed at 8/15 with Bet365.
Sadio Mane is 10/11 with 888sport and Betway.
Liverpool have struggled for form, with just three points from their last four league games and only one goal. Burnley could be the unfortunate team to face the backlash as the Reds look to get back to winning ways.
