The Liverpool vs Burnley match will be played on Sunday, March 12, at the Anfield stadium, Liverpool. Liverpool is currently 4th on the table with 52 points, while Burnley is 12th on the table with 31 points at the moment.


  • Liverpool defeated Tottenham and Arsenal with ease and recorded a draw against Chelsea, but they were defeated by the hands of Hull and Leicester City. They are unpredictable in the last couple of weeks.
  • Burnley practically avoided the battle against relegation after excellent performances in January, but they are currently in poor form - they failed to win in 5 straight matches in all competitions.


In their previous 6 meetings since 2005, Liverpool won 4 games, while Burnley recorded 2 victories, including the win in the first match, played between them this season. In 4 out of those 6 games we saw under 2.5 goals, and the host recorded a victory.


Liverpool is very unpredictable; they had marvelous and disastrous games over the course of the last few weeks. It is very hard to predict how they'll perform in the upcoming match - they played poorly in the most of the games against the teams from the lower part of the table. On the other hand, they played much better at home than away. One thing is sure - the victory in the forthcoming match is essential for them to stay in the race for the top 4.

After they had thought they solved all mysteries about their survival in Premier League, Burnley's form instantly dropped. However, if they continue performing like this, they might have problems with avoiding the relegation. There are 11 games left to play, and they will probably focus on forthcoming matches against the direct opponents, instead of putting the maximum effort against Liverpool.

Both teams are not in the greatest form at the moment, and it is hard to predict who will win the upcoming game. On the other hand, everything except a victory would be a disaster for Liverpool.
