Liverpool will be looking to take a big step towards breaking the all-time Premier League points record when they host Burnley at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are just nine points away from shattering the record set by Manchester City two years ago. However, with only four games to go, the Reds can’t afford any slip-ups.

Here are some key stats to help you in your quest.
Who will win the game?
Liverpool are the overwhelming favourites and it’s no surprise to see why. This is a side which has won 30 of its 34 league games this season and is on course to break a historic points record. Burnley may be in good form but little suggests they are capable of breaking Liverpool’s three-year unbeaten home record in the Premier League.
Which team will get the first goal?
Normally this question would get a straight forward answer however, things aren’t as crystal clear on this occasion. Liverpool may have the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to their disposal but, the last two times Burley visited Anfield, they were the ones to open the scoring.
Burnley are in good form and while they’re unlikely to win this fixture, history shows that they’re more than capable of at least getting the first goal.
Exact Goals by Home Club
Liverpool have averaged 2.2 goals a game in the Premier League this season. However, when you just look at home games, that number goes up to 2.7. Goals haven’t been a problem for Jurgen Klopp’s men and there’s no reason why that should change this weekend. Three goals for the Reds would be a realistic expectation.
How many goals will Mo Salah score?
With four games left this season, Mo Salah is desperate to try and catch Jamie Vardy in the race for the golden boot. The Egyptian international is now just three goals behind after netting twice against Brighton. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him get at least one more against Burnley.
