Prediction: Liverpool vs Burnley

What a difference a game makes.

The Reds lost 5-0 to Manchester City at The Etihad last weekend.

Liverpool could make a considerable jump up the Premier League standings if Collymore's prediction of their result comes to fruition on Saturday afternoon.

"My job is to allow this team the best opportunity to be successful".

A late sending off and defensive errors again proved costly for Liverpool who let their lead slip against the Spanish side after dominating large portions of the match.

However, as fans begin to write off the Reds' Premier League title chances, maybe they'll have more luck in 2017-18?

The teenager's only two senior appearances this season have come as a substitute for Wales in World Cup qualifiers, when he scored the victor against Austria on his debut and then set up Hal Robson-Kanu for a crucial goal in Moldova. It was evident even during his 15-minute cameo that he was rusty after such a lack of football following his unsuccessful attempts to move to Barcelona in the transfer window.

An unusually timid home performance from Burnley resulted in victory but at a cost. Mané will be a big miss for Liverpool and they may struggle to break down Burnley's two banks of four.

The pattern of play was established early on, with Liverpool enjoying near-total control of possession as they searched for ways through. That game was Crystal Palace at home in between the two games against Hoffenheim.

Klopp insists that he has no quality issue with his defence and heads into the game without the injured Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne, and the suspended Sadio Mane.

"It's our fault. We are responsible for the things that happen to us", the German said afterwards, and as was the case in the 2-2 Champions League draw with Sevilla in midweek, they were their own worst enemies. Liverpool equalised quickly, Mohamed Salah getting onto the end of Emre Can's beautifully flighted long-ball, taking a superb touch before slamming a finish under Burnley keeper Nick Pope.

Jeff Hendrick may enter the frame after training on Thursday but Dean Marney is still out for the long-term.

After a unremarkable spell at Chelsea, Salah has returned to the Premier League with Liverpool and taken the league by storm.

The match has significance for Wood, who left Leeds in August following 30 goals for the second-tier Championship club last season.
