Liverpool vs Burnley: TV channel, team news, kick-off time and live stream


Liverpool are set to continue their challenge for the Premier League title when they welcome battling Burnley to Anfield this Sunday lunchtime.

The Reds sit second in the Premier League table with 70 points, one place behind leaders Manchester City.

Much to their frustration, Jurgen Klopp ‘s side were held to a goalless draw in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park last weekend. However, they return home with fire in their bellies and determination to get back to winning ways.

Burnley are fighting at the opposite end of the table and sit 16th with 30 points, just five off Cardiff City who occupy the last relegation place.

After securing impressive victories against Brighton and Spurs , the Clarets have lost their last two games against Newcastle and Crystal Palace.

Sean Dyche ‘s side face a mammoth task in their quest to spoil Liverpool’s title surge, but will take confidence from their performances against higher opposition in recent weeks.
