Burnley's performance this season haven't been good enough. At present, they only have 16 points in their hand, placed at 17th position in the standings. Although Burnley are still 4 points above the relegation zone, the pressure on the team to relegation is still great. 

The winning percentage is justabout more than 20%. Recently, they suffered defeats at the hands of Manchester United and West Ham. As of now, the team has only scored 9 goals. Obviously, there is a serious problem in the goal scoring department for Burnley.

In terms of overall strength, Liverpool is naturally far better than Burnley. Although Liverpool has been in a poor state during the recent period, the so-called skinny camel is bigger than the horse. Compared Burnley, this campaign Liverpool still has a great chance of winning at home.
