Burnley VS Liverpool live preview Premier League

Match Stats

Despite Fulham's futile efforts in the first half at Craven Cottage against Burnley, Vincent Kompany's team capitalized on the Cottagers' lack of finishing touch. Wilson Odobert, the 19-year-old French talent, provided a masterclass in scoring with a stunning curler in the 47th minute.Odobert, fittingly, took another 19 minutes to turn into an assist provider for Sander Berge. The Norwegian midfielder's dynamic run through the middle concluded with a powerful low drive that eluded the outstretched arms of Bernd Leno, securing Burnley their third victory in the top-flight campaign.Putting an end to a winless streak on the road since October 3, Burnley, who also earned a commendable 1-1 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion in their recent away endeavors, moved Sheffield United to the bottom of the table. However, the 19th-placed Clarets still find themselves three points away from safety.Providing early Christmas presents for the Turf Moor faithful, Burnley has accumulated seven of their 11 Premier League points in December. This includes a noteworthy 5-0 triumph over Sheffield United, breaking a seven-game losing streak at home.Despite their recent successes, Kompany's team faced a setback on home turf against Everton on December 16. Additionally, five of Burnley's last seven Premier League Boxing Day fixtures have ended in defeat, setting the stage for the visit of Everton's bitter Merseyside rivals.

The much-anticipated clash at Anfield between Liverpool and Manchester United may not have lived up to expectations, but fans were treated to a captivating showdown between the Reds and Arsenal on Saturday evening. Gabriel Magalhaes set a record for the Gunners by scoring the quickest-ever Premier League goal at Anfield, finding the net just four minutes into the game.Despite falling behind early, Liverpool mounted a comeback with the customary contribution from Mohamed Salah. However, they were left frustrated by controversial officiating and missed opportunities. Martin Odegaard escaped a potential penalty for handball, and a promising five-on-one counter-attack concluded with Trent Alexander-Arnold hitting the crossbar.Jurgen Klopp expressed particular frustration about the Odegaard decision, but looking at the statistics, a draw seemed a fair outcome. The result propelled Liverpool back into second place in the table, surpassing Aston Villa, and prevented Arsenal from extending their slim lead at the top.As Arsenal isn't in action until Thursday evening, Liverpool has a chance to claim the top spot with a three-point victory at Turf Moor—unless Aston Villa also secures a win against Manchester United with a significant goal difference swing in their favor. The draw on Saturday extended Liverpool's unbeaten streak in the top flight to 11 games.Arsenal has found the back of the net in each of their last 13 top-flight away matches and has emerged victorious in their last three encounters with Burnley. Burnley aims to make history as the first newly-promoted team to defeat Liverpool in a Premier League Boxing Day fixture.
