Tip Burnley - Liverpool
Liverpool stays in the hunt for Champions League football thanks to an iconic moment in their last game as goalkeeper Alison Becker scored the winning goal against West Bromwich Albion. The Reds continue with this hunt when they travel to Burnley in another encounter they must win. Becker’s last minute goal ensured Liverpool stay a point behind Chelsea, in fifth place, with 63 points while Burnley head to the game with39 points and in 15th place. Burnley are coming from a 4-0 loss at home to Leeds United and as they seek to avoid a second straight loss, they face a side that can’t afford to lose points. That loss was Burnley’s third in the last five matches, but now it confirms them as poor performers at home. With just four wins at home, Burnley are only better than the relegated trio when it comes to home performances. They have three straight losses at home and are winless in nine straight home matches in the league.
Liverpool have fully recovered from the slump that hit them earlier in the season. Going to this game they have no loss in the last eight league matches, winning six of them. The 2-1 win over West Brom means Liverpool will push Chelsea and Leicester City to the wire, as far as the top four is concerned. Liverpool have the best run of form at the moment in the Premier League and will hope this plays out here. They have nine wins in their 18 away league matches and their hopes will be boosted by the fact that the third placed and the fourth placed teams face off on Tuesday. It is a guarantee that points will be dropped one way or another and Liverpool can reap massively from that, provided they win at Burnley, the team that handed them a first home loss after a lengthy spell.
