Liverpool are just days into their 2021/22 campaign but already hopes have been lifted that they’re going to closer resemble their title-winning selves, as opposed to last season’s muted unit.
The Reds swept aside Norwich in a 3-0 victory on the opening weekend with goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, while Virgil van Dijk returned to the starting XI following his highly publicised injury woes.
Jurgen Klopp will hope to build an early head of steam to lead from the front, especially given Man City’s shock defeat to Tottenham on the opening day. See here for our full Premier League TV schedule.
Standing in Liverpool’s way next is Burnley, who threw away the lead against Brighton to lose 2-1 at Turf Moor, but expect a very different performance from Sean Dyche’s men here.
The Clarets will arrive at Anfield with one thing on their mind: to defend. This is the first time Anfield will be filled since before the Reds were crowned Premier League champions in 2020 – can Burnley sour the party?

Our prediction: Liverpool v Burnley
This prediction will sound over the top, but hear us out. Liverpool, buoyed by the return of Virgil van Dijk with Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson on the road to recovery, in front of a packed home crowd for the first time since winning the league (for the first time in 30 years), with a fully-rested Salah and Sadio Mane, face a side notorious for their slow starts.
Burnley will dig their heels in but, while this has worked to perfection against sides around them – and is a large part of why they have picked up enough results to survive in the top flight for this long – their record against the elite is nothing short of woeful.
A famous victory over the Reds in January this year will give them hope, but Burnley never start well and Liverpool are a side with fire in the belly and a point to prove. This could get messy.
