class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Having frustrated the Reds in recent visits to Anfield, Al Hain-Cole is backing Dyche's men to keep things tight at the back on Saturday
Liverpool will be aiming to build on their positive start to the Premier League campaign when they welcome Burnley to Anfield on Saturday.
The Reds eased to an impressive 3-0 win away to Norwich in their opener, carrying on the form that saw them take 26 points from the last available 30 last season.
Liverpool vs Burnley latest odds
Having won three and lost none of their final four home games last campaign, Liverpool are 1/5 (1.20) favourites with bet365 to pick up where they left off by coming out on top here.
However, Sean Dyche’s men have claimed four points from their last two trips to this ground and Burnley can be backed at 14/1 (15.00) to pull off a shock victory in this one.

Liverpool vs Burnley team news
Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara and Curtis Jones could all be involved after missing out due to fitness issues against Norwich, although Andrew Robertson remains sidelined.
Nathan Collins will be hoping to make his debut following his summer move from Stoke, while Kevin Long and Dale Stephens are out with Achilles and ankle injuries, respectively.
Liverpool vs Burnley preview
Having failed to score in their last three league matches of the last campaign, the Clarets will have been delighted to break the deadlock within two minutes of their opening clash against Brighton.
However, their familiar lack of cutting edge became more and more apparent as they failed to build on that lead, with the usually decisive Chris Wood looking rather lethargic following his summer at the Tokyo Olympics.
Burnley are unlikely to do too much attacking anyway at Anfield, where they have conceded just once in their last two visits and only let in more than two goals once in six games.
Liverpool vs Burnley tips & predictions
Considering Jurgen Klopp’s team have failed to score more than twice in any of their last 15 fixtures on home turf, odds of 11/8 (2.38) seem generous on under 2.5 goals going in for their third consecutive Anfield outing against Burnley.
