BUR vs LIV, EPL 2021/22: MPL Preview, Predictions, & Fantasy Team

Burnley will be facing off Liverpool in the 2021/2022 Premier League season at Turf Moor on the 13th of February.

Liverpool has been one of the consistent sides in the Premier League, but the Merseysiders cannot afford to let loose in their pursuit of runaway leaders Manchester City, who they are currently 9 points adrift. Pep Guardiola’s side already won their game against Norwich 4-0 and are yet again cruising at the top of the table.

Liverpool cannot afford to have a slip-up for the entire duration of the season or else they will find catching up to Man City a job far too much to achieve. Burnley, on the other hand, has struggled to put in a decent run of form right from the get-go.

They find themselves on the bottom of the standings and have to do something fast, or else the latter stages of the premier league are too unforgiving for a team with too much to do in order to avoid the drop. Burnley will have to start getting results fast, starting from this game.

Victory for Liverpool here means that they will reduce the gap between them and Manchester City to 6 points. While manager Jurgen Klopp has played down his team’s chances of winning the title, going so far to say that “City cannot even hear our breath”, deep down he knows that he will have to win this game and also the rest of them without any slip-ups or mistakes.

Liverpool has the form to go ahead on this run, with the likes of Diogo Jota and new signing Luis Diaz slotting in seamlessly for the AFCON- bound stars Sadio mane and Mo Salah, and they will be expected to give a good account of themselves as well.

Burnley knows that nothing less than a victory will suffice, no matter what the odds. They have lost talisman Chris wood to Newcastle, but have bolstered themselves by signing Wolfsburg front man Wout Weghorst.

Burnley seems to be picking up a form at the right moment, with their last 3 games being draws, their most notable performance coming in their previous match against Manchester United, where they came from a goal down and dominated their more illustrious opponents to a well-earned draw, but they will have to start winning games in order to make the games in hand count.

Team News

When the two teams meet, it is the team from Anfield Road that ends up on top and wins most of their matches. This means that manager Sean Dyche needs every player possible to try and get something out of this game. He will be sweating on the fitness of star winger Maxwell cornet after he was withdrawn in the second half against Manchester United with cramps.

Charlie Taylor is also a doubt with his status unknown. Matej Hydra and Johan Berg Gudmundsson continue to remain long-term absentees. The problems are growing for the home side, who will find it tough to contain Jurgen Klopp’s men. They will need to be fully focused in this match if they want to try to get something from this game.

Liverpool right now will be spoilt for choice now, with their star forwards Mo Salah and Sadio mane returning back just in time for manager Jurgen Klopp. They will surely add some much-needed quality to strengthen them in what is expected to be a key period for the reds. Although it is expected that they will be on the bench in order to get them well-rested for the upcoming fixtures. 

Burnley starting Line-up

Pope; Roberts, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters, Lennon. Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil, Rodriguez, Weghorst.

Liverpool Starting line-up

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Mario, van Dijk, Robertson. Elliott, Fabinho, Keita, Salah, Firmino, Jota


Liverpool has done an amazing job coping with the absences of key players like Mo Salah and Mane. They have held themselves up in a good position to capitalize on their return and go on a good run. However, just like their fierce title rivals Manchester City, they can’t afford to drop any points or else the title race could be truly over soon.

It be the away team that has the advantage going into this game for sure. Whether they are able to capitalize on that or not, remains to be seen. Jurgen Klopp will want his team to deliver in every match, from now until the end of the season. Despite that, not every game is easy and that could be the case this time around too.

Burnley, who were already facing an uphill task to keep the, at bay without their superstars, will find it one task too many to keep them from getting all the three points, but if their second-half performance against Manchester United in their previous encounter is anything to go by, the reds could be in for a tough time. But all said and done, there should be enough firepower in possession of the Merseysiders to take home all the 3 points.

Score Prediction- Burnley 0- 4 Liverpool
