Dyche pulled off an impressive feat last season, guiding his Burnley side to an unexpected 7th place finish. This season, that form has looked a distant memory and they find themselves in the relegation zone. Although, in the defeat against Liverpool, the Clarets showed some promise.

For some spells of the game, Burnley was on top and fashioned some good chances for themselves. Whilst the scoreline looked as though it was a comfortable game for Klopp and his Liverpool side, this wasn't the case.

Burnley for the first 50 minutes of the game put Liverpool under some pressure and eventually found their way through and got their goal. Alisson made a save from a corner but it wasn't enough to keep the ball out of the net as Jack cork tapped in the rebound.

Burnley was in the game for the first 50-60 minutes and rightly so found themselves 1-0 up. But in the end, quality prevailed and Liverpool won the game 3-1. The result was for Burnley, but they looked much more competitive and looked as though they were improving.

Burnley have 3 tough fixtures coming up in Brighton, Tottenham and Arsenal. These may be difficult fixtures, but if they play as they did against Liverpool there is no recent that they couldn't pick up points from these games.
