Liverpool vs Burnley: Premier League – LIVE!

The Premier League champions find themselves on their worst scoring run in the top light for more than 15 years as they welcome Sean Dyche’s side to Anfield.

Three goalless games – two draws and a defeat – have seen the Reds drop from top spot to fourthm behind their biggest title rivals, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Since putting seven goals past Crystal Palace, it’s four games without a win and will be afforded no reprieve by Burnley’s typically has a stubborn defence. Klopp was bullish in his pre-match press conference, telling reporters: “It (scrutiny) is just getting earlier and earlier but it is all fine. We are on it, believe me.”

Burnley have lost three of their last five, include their previous two on the bounce, but were the only team to take points off Liverpool at home last season. Dyche said: “I’m not overthinking they’re maybe not as free-flowing … We still have to be on top of ourselves and on top of our performance.”
