Liverpool vs Burnley Live streaming
Liverpool vs Burnley Live streaming will be available here before kick-off and it will be available in different qualities. Liverpool will be out for revenge when they battle Burnley in their second Premier League fixture of the new season on Saturday.
It was a 1-0 defeat by the Clarets in January sealed by a late Ashley Barnes penalty following a trip by goalkeeper Alisson that finally brought to an end their incredible 68-game unbeaten home run in the top-flight.
That upset sparked a dramatic loss of home form for Jurgen Klopp’s previously dominant side, who went on to lose six league matches in a row at Anfield for the first time ever.

The chances of another desperate run of that nature being sparked this weekend look very slim indeed, however, with Liverpool beginning the 2021/22 campaign in fine form as goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah put newly-promoted Norwich to the sword at Carrow Road.
That was not the case for Sean Dyche’s Burnley, 17th-place finishers last term, who led for 71 minutes at home to Brighton following James Tarkowski’s early header, only for late quick-fire efforts from Neal Maupay and Alexis Mac Allister to condemn them to a demoralising opening day loss at Turf Moor.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Liverpool vs Burnley is scheduled for a 12:30 pm BST kick-off on Saturday, August 21, 2021.

Liverpool vs Burnley team news
Liverpool were massively boosted against Norwich by the return to competitive action of defenders Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip, while the fit-again Joe Gomez was an unused substitute alongside £35million summer signing Ibrahima Konate.
Kostas Tsimikas made his first Premier League start at left-back with the usually ever-present Andy Robertson nursing an ankle ligament injury that will keep him sidelined once more at the weekend.
Curtis Jones will be back in contention following a head injury, while captain Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara will also hope to be involved after playing in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Aston Villa on Sunday.
Klopp – who played Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner as his midfield three against Norwich, with Fabinho introduced on the hour mark – faces a difficult selection decision in the final third with Jota and Firmino both among the goals, with the Portuguese getting the nod alongside Salah and Sadio Mane from the start at Carrow Road.
As for Burnley, slow progress on the transfer front – they have signed only Nathan Collins and Wayne Hennessey thus far – means their squad has a very familiar look for a sixth consecutive season in the Premier League.
Midfielder Dale Stephens and defender Kevin Long are the club’s only confirmed injury absentees at present.
Liverpool vs Burnley prediction
On opening day, Liverpool showed no signs of a hangover from their difficult failed title defence that saw them finish third and 17 points adrift of champions Manchester City last term.
The returns of Van Dijk, Matip and Gomez were a massive boost after last season’s wretched defensive injury crisis and Salah was in irresistible form as Norwich were firmly dispatched after a bright start, with two assists and a goal to his name.
Burnley, by contrast, absolutely threw away three points against Brighton and will have taken a sizable early knock to their confidence as they look to secure top-flight survival once again.
Liverpool to avenge their record-ending defeat in January with another comfortable victory here.
Liverpool 2-0 Burnley.
Head to head (h2h) history and results

Liverpool responded to that shock Anfield loss with an important 3-0 triumph at Turf Moor in May that kept their Champions League qualification chances alive.
However, they have not beaten Burnley on Merseyside since 2019, with hopes of maintaining a 100 percent home record throughout the Covid-affected 2019/20 campaign ended by a second-half Jay Rodriguez equaliser in a 1-1 tie in July 2020.
