Burnley vs Liverpool last five H2Hs

Liverpool 1-1 Burnley – 11th July 2020

One thing we can say about the 1-1 tie between Liverpool and Burnley on the 11th of July, 2020, was that David Coote didn’t have too much job to do. The ref booked two players in 90 minutes of football, and it’s fair to say that the overall atmosphere on the pitch was very gentlemanly, as the two teams shared the spoils. Sure, Merseyside perhaps deserved the three points a bit more as Salah and Firmino made a couple of crucial errors in attack, but that’s football.

Liverpool 0-1 Burnley – 21st January 2021

Burnley’s win over Merseyside on the 21st of January came as a shock to many, as Jurgen Klopp’s boys were expected to pick up routine three points. Ashley Barnes threw the home team’s fans into tears, as he bagged a penalty in the 89th minute of the game, denying Liverpool the opportunity to rise in the Premier League ranking.

Burnley 0-3 Liverpool – 19th May 2021

Immediately after losing 1-0 at home to Burnley, Jurgen Klopp’s side demolished the Clarets 0-3 at Turf Moore in the following match. Roberto Firmino opened the score just before half-time, Nathaniel Phillips with a lovely header doubled Merseyside’s lead in the 52nd minute of the match, and Alex-Oxlade-Chamberlain’s well-struct left-footed shot two minutes before the end of the match were the goals Klopp needed to put a smile on his face.

Liverpool 2-0 Burnley – 21st August 2021

Burnley 0-1 Liverpool – 13th February 2022

The last official Burnley vs Liverpool head-to-head resulted 0-1 in favor of the visitors at Turf Moore. Perhaps a thrifty win, Merseyside deserved to bag a couple more. Fortunately for Burnley, we saw a terrific Nick Pope under the woodwork for Burnley.

Potential MVP – Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah is one of the best players in the Premier League in the last decade. He and Tottenham’s Harry Kane were leading the goalscoring charts throughout the last couple of years, but the Egyptian definitely still has competition in the league, with Erling Haaland scoring like there’s no tomorrow.

However, the Norwegian is injured, which opens a whole lot of opportunities in front of Mohamed Salah, who’s no stranger to scoring against the Clarets. Mohamed Salah scored 12 goals this season. A couple of more and he’ll surpass Haaland.

Key trend

Judging from the Burnley vs Liverpool last five H2Hs, we can safely say that the Clarets aren’t accustomed to scoring against Merseyside. We believe coach Jurgen Klopp will find a way to keep a clean sheet in this match. Liverpool shouldn’t have difficulties achieving that, seeing as the team is currently still in the fight for 1st place in the Premier League.
