Liverpool has won only two of their last seven matches but will welcome Burnley to Anfield on Sunday hoping three points will herald their return to the top of the Premier League.
The Merseysiders drew 0-0 against rivals Manchester United in their last outing, and they’ll seek a statement against Sean Dyche’s side as they look to leapfrog top-flight leaders Manchester City.

The Citizens hold a one-point advantage at the top of the standings following Liverpool’s slip at Old Trafford, one of three 0-0 stalemates they’ve run out in their last four matches. Not only that, but the Reds have drawn five times in those last seven games.
Still, while Jurgen Klopp will be disappointed by his side’s lack of consistent firepower recently, he can take comfort in the fact they’re unbeaten in nine and haven’t lost to Burnley since August 2016.
The Clarets—who have lost their last two matches—did manage to snatch a 1-1 draw from their last trip to Anfield in September 2017, which remains to this day the only Premier League point they’ve ever picked up from the ground.
Klopp is still dogged by defensive injuries to Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still fighting to feature again for the Reds before the end of this season.
Manchester City host Watford on Saturday and could temporarily climb four points clear of Liverpool before the Merseyside giants have a chance to reel the leaders back in on Sunday.
Burnley recently went through a strong patch of form but now look more vulnerable heading to Anfield, where Liverpool were 5-0 victors over Watford in their most recent home outing.
