Time: 10:00 ET | 16:00 Cairo Local Time
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool)
Referee: David Coote
Liverpool will look to take another step towards the Premier League points record when they host Burnley at Anfield. The Reds sealed the their first league title in 30 years with seven games to spare and need nine points from their remaining four games to break Manchester City’s record point haul of 100 from the 2017-18 season.
Burnley arrive at Merseyside in a rich vein of form and have won three of their last four games in the Premier League. The Clarets have enjoyed another excellent campaign in the top flight and are still in with a chance of securing European football for the forthcoming season.
Liverpool, on the other hand, haven’t been at their scintillating best in recent weeks. However, the Reds recovered swiftly from their 4-0 thrashing against Manchester City are coming on the back of successive victories against Aston Villa and Brighton.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have won each of their 17 home games this season and could become the first side in the history of English football to win all their home games in a 38 game Premier League season.
Liverpool recorded a comprehensive 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture in August. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino added to Chris Wood’s early own goal, as the Reds took home all three points after a fantastic performance away from home.
Burnley’s last victory against Liverpool was in 2016 when they secured a 2-0 win at Turf Moor in the Premier League.
