Sky Sports pundit states his prediction for Burnley vs Liverpool FC
Charlie Nicholas is expecting to see Liverpool FC pick up a 3-1 win at Burnley on Saturday
Charlie Nicholas is expecting to see Liverpool FC pick up a 3-1 away win when they travel to Burnley on Saturday evening.
The Reds head into this weekend’s round of fixtures leading the way at the top of the Premier League table after having won their opening three games of the season under Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool FC are aiming to win the Premier League title this season after having finished just a single point behind champions Manchester City last term.
The Merseyside outfit have picked up wins over Norwich City, Southampton and Arsenal in their opening three games to begin the season with a 100 per cent record.
Klopp’s men will now travel to Burnley on Saturday night as they look to try and continue their perfect start to the new campaign.
And former Arsenal star Nicholas is fully expecting to see Liverpool FC claim all three points in the game.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Nicholas said: “Liverpool were very good going forward but I did see problems at the back against Arsenal.
“I don’t think Adrian is reliable. We saw mistakes at West Ham and we have recently too. Ashley Barnes is in form at the moment and Sean Dyche may play Chris Wood for his height.
“They will squeeze Liverpool and drop off when they have it at the back, squeezing the midfield too. They need to stop the full-backs and the service to the front men.
“If it is rolled out from Liverpool they could even squeeze from the front. Liverpool will take risks and were exposed sometimes against Arsenal.
“The front three will be nice and fresh, with Mohamed Salah coming into this off the back of a brace, so I expect a Liverpool win.”
Liverpool FC have been drawn with Napoli, Salzburg and Genk in their Champions League group, with the group stage starting towards the end of next month.
The Reds are aiming to defend their Champions League title after having won the trophy last term by beating Spurs in the final.
