Fresh off their win over Arsenal, Liverpool are looking to establish themselves as an early contender for the Premier League title.

Burnley meanwhile, are looking to move themselves away from the relegation zone, with many predicted them to be one of the three teams to make the drop back down to the Championship at the end of the season.



In addition to their impressive win over Arsenal, Liverpool were solid during the preseason, with wins over the likes of AC Milan and Barcelona in the International Champions Cup.

Phillipe Coutinho was instrumental against Arsenal, while new recruit Sadio Mane managed to get on the scoresheet in his Premier League debut with the Reds.

A win against Burnley will hold them in good stead before their match against fellow title contenders Tottenham Hotspur next week on 27 August on SBS.



Burnley returned to the Premier League after a season in the Championship, and their recent purchase of Belgium international Steven Defour for a club record $9.7 million fee has signalled their intention to remain in the top flight.

A home loss against Swansea City in their first game was not the ideal start, but under the steady leadership of Sean Dyche, who saw the club promoted to the Premier League in the 2014-2015 season, they will be hoping that consistency will the key to their success.

What will be holding them back is the lack of proven goalscorers at the top-flight level, with Sam Vokes and Ashley Barnes the only forwards with any real Premier League experience.

Prediction: Burnley 1-2 Liverpool
