Liverpool vs Burnley - Premier League Live Football Match Soccer 31th August 2019

Match: Burnley vs Liverpool
Date: August 31, 2019
Stadium: Turf Moor, Burnley (England)
Competition: Premier League
Kickoff time: 17:30 (UTC/GMT+1, local time


Liverpool are looking to keep their 100 per cent Premier League record in tact before the international break as they travel to Burnley on Saturday.

Likewise, although the Clarets have fashioned a good number of chances in each of their three games this season, it is difficult to see them having as much success against Jurgen Klopp's team.

As such, Burnley may have to rely solely on set-pieces to fashion opportunities and it may be that VAR could be their ally in picking up shirt-pulling or fouls in the area.

Spanish keeper Adrian has made mistakes since replacing Alisson in the Reds goal and he could be caught out by some long balls and deep crosses into the area from the likes of Erik Pieters and Dwight McNeil, who has the second-highest number of assists in the Premier League in 2019 behind Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Defensively speaking, Burnley will have to rely even more on centre-half James Tarkowski, who marshalled the defence well against Wolves, as Klopp is unlikely to rest any of his preferred front three for this game.

One significant tactical problem for the Clarets could be the absence of Icelandic winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson. The former Charlton Athletic player went off with a calf problem last weekend and contributes more defensively than his likely replacement Aaron Lennon, which would afford Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson far more space to drive into.

Jurgen Klopp's Champions League holders sit top of the table with three wins from three, with last weekend's 3-1 home victory over Arsenal serving as a warning to the rest of the would-be title contenders that Liverpool will not be easy to shift.

The Reds head to Turf Moor to face a Burnley side who have collected four points so far, and Sean Dyche's Clarets have already shown against Arsenal this season that it will require brawn as well as brains to beat them.

Team news and predicted lineups
Steven Defour (calf) and Robbie Brady (ribs) are out for Burnley, while Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf) has a slight chance of returning.

Daniel Drinkwater could feature for the Clarets after featuring in the Carabao Cup defeat to Sunderland.

As for Liverpool, Naby Keita (groin), Alisson Becker (calf) and Nathaniel Clyne (knee) all remain out of action.

Burnley XI: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Lennon, Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Barnes

Liverpool XI: Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Mane, Firmino
