Liverpool head into their final two Premier League fixtures knowing they need maximum points if they are to try and secure a Champions League spot.


Burnley welcome the Reds to Turf Moor with little to play for but go into the game off the back of a 4-0 hammering at home to Leeds.

In fact, Burnley have now set an unwanted club record of nine consecutive top-flight home league games without a win (D5, L4).

Sean Dyche's men will have to put in a solid defensive performance if they are to put an end to that streak and have the unenviable task of stopping joint-top Golden Boot leader Mo Salah.

The Reds did however slip up against Burnley in the reverse fixture in January as Ashley Barnes bagged the only goal of the game. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Burnley v Liverpool on TV and online.

Our prediction: Burnley v Liverpool

There should be plenty of goals from Liverpool in this one with the Reds knowing the final Champions League spot could be settled on goal difference.

Salah sits level with Harry Kane on 22 league goals for the season and will see Burnley as an opportunity to add to his goals tally.

Burnley will be buoyed by the return of their fans at Turf Moor but it will require something special to beat last year's champions.

Our prediction: Burnley 1-3 Liverpool (10/1 at bet365)
