Liverpool v Burnley: match preview


Burnley have fared well on their past two visits to Anfield – ending Liverpool’s club record run of 68 home games unbeaten last season and emerging as the only visitors to avoid defeat during the host’s title-winning campaign the season before. Both matches, however, were played behind closed doors and the first full capacity Anfield crowd in 17 months will be keen to make its presence felt once again. The game also marks the meeting of the two longest serving current managers in the Premier League. Andy Hunter
