Mark Lawrenson lauds 'brilliant' Burnley & makes Liverpool scoreline prediction
Writing for BBC Sport, pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted a 2-0 win for Reds, but offered some words of praise for the Clarets.
"But I see their good run ending when they go to Anfield. Liverpool will find it far harder to break Burnley down than it was against Brighton in midweek, but I think the end result will be the same - a Reds win.”
Meanwhile, Lawrenson's opponent for the week, The Manor's Scotty Stacks, also tipped a Liverpool win, opting for a 2-1 scoreline.
He argued: "Liverpool will win, but Burnley are a stubborn, stubborn side. Their manager Sean Dyche has been touted to take over at (Crystal) Palace a couple of times and I have no idea why anyone would say no to him getting the job.
"Look what he has done at Burnley with a net spend of about £4.50 since he has been there."
The last time the two team met, back in August, the Reds ran out comfortable 3-0 winners, as a Chris Wood own-goal, and strikes from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino sealed the win for Jurgen Klopp's side.
