It's no secret that Liverpool are suffering in front of goal and their clash with Burnley on Thursday night has become a must-win game.

The Reds have scored just once, against second-bottom West Brom, in their last four Premier League matches while taking just three points in that time.

The disappointing run of form has seen Jurgen Klopp's side slip to fourth in the table, six points behind leaders Manchester United but with a game in hand.

Liverpool also sit four points behind Manchester City and Leicester in second and third respectively, with Pep Guardiola's side also holding a game in hand over most of those around them.

When 17th-place Burnley come to Anfield then, the Reds must make sure they are on top form, capitalise on the opportunity to get three points and start to assert some control closer to the top of the Premier League table.

Positively for Klopp, both Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have netted four goals in their last four top-flight appearances for Liverpool against Burnley and this match could represent a perfect opportunity for the star attackers to find some much-needed form against a favourable opponent.

Also, in the last 17 league meetings at Anfield between both sides - the Reds have lost just once against Burnley back in September 1974 while winning 11 and drawing five in that time.

However, Liverpool must beware because the Clarets have beaten all four different teams they’ve faced as reigning champions in the Premier League.

They beat Manchester United in the 2009/10 season before Sean Dyche took over and then downed Manchester City in 14/15, Leicester in 16/17 and Chelsea in 17/18 while Burnley also beat the Reds 2-1 in the last season they faced Liverpool as the reigning top-flight champion back in 1973/74.

Burnley were also the only side to leave Anfield with a point last term, though the Turf Moor side have taken just five points from a possible 36 in Premier League games against Liverpool.

Meanwhile, they've failed to score in six of their last seven away Premier League games, with their only goal in this run an own goal from Arsenal attacker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Indeed, no side has failed to score in more different away Premier League games this season than the Clarets and that should give Liverpool confidence to go out and attack without fear of reprieve.
