Paul Merson states his prediction for Liverpool FC v Burnley

10 March 2019

The tie is well placed after the Bundesliga champions secured a goalless draw at Anfield and the Reds have plenty of work to do if they are to join fellow Premier League sides Manchester United and Tottenham in the hat for the next round. "Dejan trained yesterday for the first time, full, completely normal, ' said Klopp".

Guardiola whose side were several points behind Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool have now taken charge of the title race leading with a point.

Liverpool have won nine of their last 11 home games against Burnley in all competitions (D2) since a 0-1 loss in September 1974.

"Then you have to finish them off, which we did very often but not (at Everton)".

Liverpool play Burnley at 12 pm local time and Klopp has complained about early kickoffs in the past, saying he is "usually hungry" at noon.

In fact, Burnley have picked up just four points from 27 available points in the Premier League against Liverpool (W1 D1 L7), winning 2-0 at Turf Moor in August 2016 before drawing this exact fixture last season. "They're not little boys any more". It's up to Klopp to bring that out of them for the rest of the season.

"We are all under different circumstances and that's all but I don't think there is anything to regret and I have no bad feelings about this".

But, rather being than a suffocating negative for Liverpool's players, Gerrard feels the Anfield support should be an uplifting positive.

"Certain people will see it as failure but that is football and opinions". Jurgen has taken the squad forward giant strides.

"We have plenty of meetings throughout the season where he's definitely not happy with some things and I think that's a good sign, because even when we only lost one game the whole season there are still moments where we do much better".

Gerrard has his own job at Rangers to occupy him and no-one could accuse him of taking his management career lightly.

A number of Gerrard's former England team-mates have started on the management path in recent times, most recently Paul Scholes at Oldham. It's the beginning of March, who cares?

With five points separating them from the bottom three, both Burnley and Tarkowski will be keen to get a result this weekend.

"After the game I saw the video and you hear when it hit the post.It's a special sound".

"The biggest eye opener is the amount of thinking you have to do". I'm enjoying every bit of it.

"I want to achieve everything that's possible in football".
