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.
