It was a 1-0 loss to the Clarets in January, sealed by a late penalty from Ashley Barnes after a failure by goalkeeper Alisson.
This surprise led to a dramatic loss of home form for Jürgen Klopp’s previously dominant team, which for the first time ever lost six league games in a row at Anfield.
That was not the case for Sean Dyches Burnley, who suffered a demoralizing loss on Turf Moor’s opening day on 17th last season.
Date, kick-off time and venue

Liverpool vs Burnley prediction
On the opening day, Liverpool showed no signs of a hangover from their difficult title defense, which finished third last season, 17 points behind champions Manchester City.
The return of Van Dijk, Matip and Gomez was a massive boost after last season’s pathetic injury crisis and Salah was in irresistible shape when Norwich was arrested after a brilliant start with two assists and a goal in his name.
Burnley, on the other hand, threw away absolutely three points against Brighton and will have weakened his self-confidence very early on when it comes to securing his survival in the top class again.
Liverpool aim to avenge their record defeat in January with another comfortable win here.
Head-to-Head (h2h) course and results
Liverpool responded to that shocking defeat at Anfield with an important 3-0 triumph at Turf Moor in May that kept their Champions League qualifying chances alive.
They haven’t beaten Burnley on Merseyside since 2019, however, with hopes of holding a 100 percent home record during the 2019-20 Covid-hit season, which was broken in a July 1, 2020 by a Jay Rodriguez equalizer in the second half in a 1 : 1-tie ended.
