Burnley

Last updated: Mon 02 September 2019 01:43
In Brief

Coming into this after shameful exit from League Cup. Brady and Defour remain out. Gudmundsson major doubt.

Looking Back

Burnley won their first game of season, but since then unable to record another victory.

After drama of late equaliser conceded on visit to Wolves las weekend came the much poorer midweek display vs. Sunderland. Clarets took early lead against the team playing 2 tiers below them, but shambolic defending saw them losing 1:3 in the end.

Defending set pieces proving problematic, 2 of 3 goals vs. Sunderland and 2 of 3 goals in Premier League conceded this way.

Looking Ahead

Coach Dyche not expecting Gudmundsson to overcome knock sustained last weekend on time. If he can’t Burnley might make first change to their starting XI in the Premier League.

Brady still not fully fit after rib injury, while Defour continues rehabilitation. Drinkwater made his Burnley debut on Wednesday and he might be on the bench now.

Points of Interest

Lost 9 of last 12 vs. Liverpool, but both wins during this stretch narrow 1:0 home victories.

Liverpool

Last updated: Mon 02 September 2019 01:43
In Brief

Yet to drop points, but also yet to keep clean sheet. Clyne and Alisson sidelined. Keita also unavailable.

Looking Back

Liverpool maintained perfect start to season with confident 3:1 home win vs. Arsenal. Salah was the star of this match with his brace, with Liverpool close to 2-3 more goals if better focus shown with the finishing.

Remain without clean sheet though and this reason for serious concern.

Firmino and Mane have scored 3 goals each in last 3 matches vs. Burnley, but Salah failed to score in any of these 3 matches.

Looking Ahead

Coach Klopp could use unchanged starting XI, with no fresh injury issues to worry about.

Keita not expected to be risked, with Clyne and Alisson still in rehabilitation.

Points of Interest

Already 3 goals scored after well-worked set pieces, most in the league.

Manager Comments

"There is no reason for resting players in the moment. It is not the moment for a lot of changes. After this international break, that will change completely of course."
