Burnley vs Liverpool: Tips and prediction – 26.12.2014

By on December 24, 2014
Burnley will host Liverpool this Friday from 15:00 (UK Time), the game being part of the 18th fixture in Premier League. The guests are starting in pole-position on Boxing Day, but both teams are struggling this season.
 
Burnley are new-promoted and they seem to have some real problems this campaign. The host proposed to avoit the relegation this stage, but after 17 league game they are under the red line, on the 18th position. Burnley have 15 points and a 12-26 goal difference and we have to say that Aston Villa is the only team with a weaker attack right now.
 
Liverpool are coming after three bad results in BPL. To be more precise, they ticked two draws and a defeat, but their game was considerably improved. Brendan Rodgers and his players are on the 10th position, with 22 points, nine behind Top 4. The cormorans will be without Daniel Sturridge, Flanagan, Suso and Glen Johnson, all injured. Borini is suspended, but Balotelli will be available again. Gerrard could be rested, while Sterling could be on the bench as well, consdering that he played all minutes so far in BPL.
 
Burnley vs Liverpool probable lineups:
Burnley (4-4-1-1): Heaton – Trippier, Keane, Shackell, Mee – Boyd, Marney, Jones, Arfield – Barnes – Ings.
Liverpool (3-4-3): Jones – Toure, Skrtel, Sakho – Henderson, Can, Lucas, Markovic – Lallana, Balotelli, Coutinho.
 
Prediction: 2 @ 1.83
Liverpool need three points here without any doubt and we expect them to get them. As we said, The Reds improved their game, proof that they had 26 attemps against Arsenal last week.
The best odds for Burnley vs Liverpool: 4.75 – 3.75 – 1.83
