Our football match prediction:
Liverpool will be aiming to make amends for an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Manchester City when they host Burnley at their Anfield on Saturday afternoon. The Reds were hammered by the Citizens at Etihad Stadium at the weekend, but it has to be noted that key player Sadio Mane was sent off in the first half of the match. The Senegal international misses the football match against Burnley through suspension, but fellow Mohamed Salah is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Burnley recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at home in their last league match, but it is well known that the Clarets are not regarded as good travelers and that is the main reason why we predict the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at Anfield Liverpool recorded a 2-1 win over Burnley and the history is likely to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Coutinho):
Philipppe Coutinho Correira is a Brazilian football player born on 12th of June 1992 in Rio de Janeiro. Coutinho started his football career for Vasco da Gama where he played in the youth as well. By the age of 16 Internazionale signed Coutinho but let him play in Brazil until he was 18 years old. After 2 difficult seasons Internazionale let Coutinho go for a loan period to Espanyol and after 1 season he got transferred to Liverpool for approximately 8 million euro. Coutinho played in several youth teams of Brazil but made his debut for the first team in October 2010.With a height of only 171cm Coutinho is physically weak. He compensates his physical ability by being very creative, having a great vision and passing. The preferred position of Coutinho is attacking midfielder where he gets easily into the right position to give an assist. Coutinho won the Italian Suppercoppa, the worldcup for club teams and the World Cup of nations U20. Coutinho was part of the Liverpool team that was able to become second in the Premier League.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since. Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season. Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
