Burnley welcome Liverpool in the evening kick-off with The Clarets hoping to put an early dent in Liverpool’s title chase.
Burnley at home can be a very tricky proposition so Klopp’s men will need to be wary – last season they had to come from behind to get the win, only making sure of the 3 points in the 90th minute. Man City only secured a 1-0 win courtesy of a second half Aguero goal and Tottenham left Turf Moor with nothing thanks to an Ashley Barnes winner.
Barnes played no part in the side that lost to Sunderland in the EFL Cup but in the league he is well into his stride already. He’s scored in all three games so far, opening the scoring twice and netting four in total so we fancy him to continue that run versus Liverpool. Liverpool are the better team and ought to take a hard fought win but they’ve conceded in every game so far and it’s hard to see them shutting Burnley – and Barnes in particular – out completely.
If you want a bigger gamble Barnes first and a Liverpool win is around the 20/1 mark but Liverpool have taken the lead every time in the league so far. Instead we’ll go for Barnes to score anytime with the Liverpool win at 9/5 with William Hill.
