Jurgen Klopp’s side will be looking to make it back-to-back Premier League victories after a thrilling 4-3 win against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in their opener on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds are in second place in the Premier League table after goals from Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane secured their first three points of the 2016/17 season.
Burnley, meanwhile, suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss to Welsh side Swansea City at Turf Moor last weekend as Sean Dyche’s side made their return to the Premier League.
Former Liverpool defender Lawrenson can’t envisage Dyche’s Clarets outfit causing the 18-time English champions too many problems on Saturday afternoon.
“You would not want to have played two games at home and lost them both at this stage of the season but unfortunately for Burnley, I can see it happening,” Lawrenson told BBC Sport.
“Looking at the way they set up against Arsenal, I think playing away suits the Reds. Yes, teams will be able to get at them but boy oh boy will they cause them problems too.”
The Reds signed seven players in the summer transfer window as Klopp looked to give his Liverpool squad an overhaul following an eighth-place finish last season.
The five-time European champions have won’t the Premier League title since the division’s inception in 1992.
