Burnley lost three of their last four Premier League games 1-0 to slow their momentum and none have scored an away goal since their win at Arsenal in mid-December

And Liverpool’s title defense took a blow with a winless league run in four games when they slipped to fourth place in the table – six points behind leaders Manchester United

The Clarets – still four points ahead of the last three – pushed United all the way before taking a narrow defeat at Turf Moor just over a week ago

And although Liverpool’s relatively barren run makes them no less dangerous opponents – according to Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope – the men of Sean Dyche will head to Anfield in a positive mood after being the only team stopping the Reds to win at home season in their march for the title

“You’re going through a phase but it’s not easy to get there,” said Pope, who made his first top start in Liverpool three and a half years ago

“When we go into the game we can’t take them lightly or look at them any less than last season when we went to Anfield and they were already champions

“The attitude and attitude we need to have is the same as last season We have to be confident

“We’re going to different places in the Premier League, in a much better place than a few years ago

“We think we can get points anywhere. We have this attitude, don’t be afraid, protect our target, attack with freedom and try to get points out of the game”

Defender Charlie Taylor is back in training and could return to the squad with a hamstring injury after missing two league games

Goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell is also back in training
Defenders Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez and striker Diogo Jota are still missing in Liverpool

But center-back Joel Matip could return for the first time since late December

The Clarets – 17th on the table – have lost their last two Premier League games 1-0 after just one loss in six games

They are aiming for a second away win but are unbeaten in four of their nine games on their travels

Fourth-placed Liverpool have not won a league game since a 7-0 win at Crystal Palace a week before Christmas

The Reds’ run in four league games without a win – and without goals in three games – is the worst since 2015

Liverpool’s 0-0 draw against Manchester United last weekend was the first time since October 2018 that they haven’t scored a goal in a home game

Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp: “If you look at the goal difference, it means that they haven’t scored many goals, but they haven’t conceded many goals either”

“That just shows us how tough the game is going to be, but it was always like this against Burnley: a real fight, a fight with the second ball, defending the channel balls, defending the intensity and all those things. p>

“You play a certain way and I really respect that you have been doing this for years and Sean is always able to get really good performances out of the squad even if they aren’t the biggest squad in the world.” p>

“Of course, if they have injuries that hurt them, maybe even more than other teams. But that’s the situation, they know that and they handle it very well and we have to face that”

Burnley captain Ben Mee turns 350 Appearance in his career He has played 333 games for the Clarets, 15 for Leicester City and one for Manchester City

The Clarets are looking to continue their record of beating each of the newly crowned Premier League champions the following season, having previously recorded wins against Manchester United, Manchester City, Leicester City and Chelsea

The Clarets want to win the Premier League for the first time at Anfield, but have made two of their last three visits

Burnley’s draw at Anfield last season marked the first time Liverpool hadn’t won at home in the league in 528 days

Of their 68 unbeaten league games, the Reds have won 55 and drawn 13
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has 99 wins in all competitions at Anfield
