On the upcoming Sunday, Liverpool will host Burnley at their home ground within the 28th round of the EPL. Bookmakers reckon, that the Reds have great chances on victory in the upcoming game. One can partially agree with the set action line, but it shouldn’t be forgotten, that every team in the EPL fights until the end despite the field factor and current shape.
Liverpool are falling behind the leading Chelsea by fourteen points. Eleven rounds are left until the end and it is really hard to believe, that the Reds can fight against the Blues for the title. However, the fight for the top four has only began. Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United are the contenders and two of those teams will be left out from the Champions League.
Within the last five matches Burnley lost thrice with two draws. The defeats were registered against Watford, Lincoln City and Swansea, and the division of points happened with Chelsea and Hull City. The results are far from best, but those were all one-goal defeats. i.e. it is prematurely to say that the Clarets are in crisis, however on the other hand Liverpool are not Swansea and definitely not Lincoln City, therefore Burnley’s problems are pretty possible.
Bookmakers humble Burnley too much with their action plus Liverpool are a team, that rarely shows extravagant football even in domestic matches. To get some points in the upcoming game, Burnley have to show some quality game in defense, although it very questionable, if the Clarets will manage to score some goals against Liverpool.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.5 goals in the match.
