|How to watch Liverpool vs Burnley (1/22/2021): Live stream, TV schedule - channel|
With the rest of the Premier League's top four in action before Liverpool in midweek. Liverpool could come into Thursday's game sitting six points adrift of the leaders at the halfway stage of their season - a far cry from the 13-point lead, with a game in hand, that they enjoyed at the same stage of last term.
Jurgen Klopp has even insisted that his side must first focus on finishing in the top four before they can think about defending their crown. Klopp will be keen to restore the club’s aura of invincibility if they are to retain their crown.
The visit of Burnley looks like the perfect chance to secure three points - but Sean Dyche’s Clarets don’t concede many goals despite sitting 17th, and could make it a tight contest on Merseyside.

Liverpool vs Burnley is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off on Thursday, January 21, 2021 and will be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK.
The match will be held behind closed doors at Anfield due to coronavirus restrictions.

Team News Liverpool vs Burnley
Liverpool should be able to welcome Joel Matip back into their side after he only narrowly missed out against Man United at the weekend.
The centre-back's return will free up Jordan Henderson to move back into his favoured midfield role, potentially taking the place of Xherdan Shaqiri despite the Swiss playmaker putting in a positive performance on his surprise start at the weekend.
With Diogo Jota still sidelined, Klopp does not have much option but to keep faith with his misfiring front three, although he must also weigh up the benefits of resting players ahead of this weekend's FA Cup showdown with Man United at Old Trafford.
The league is the priority, though, and Mohamed Salah, who is on his second-longest goal drought as a Liverpool player, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, both of whom have four goals in four league games against Burnley for Liverpool, should all start again.
The likes of Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Neco Williams and Divock Origi are among the players knocking on the door if Klopp does choose to make changes.
Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Naby Keita, Jota and Kostas Tsimikas all remain sidelined.
Burnley will hand late fitness tests to defensive duo Jimmy Dunne and Charlie Taylor, the latter of whom could be in contention to return to the starting lineup.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell is also a doubt due to illness, while Dwight McNeil will be pushing for a start after missing out in the last two games.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson; Henderson, Thiago, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Brady, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Barnes, Wood
Liverpool vs Burnley prediction
*Liverpool 1-0 Burnley: At any other point of the season, you'd likely be looking at a big home win. However, Liverpool are short of confidence, and you'd suspect Klopp would take three points however they came here. There's no doubt Liverpool could smash Burnley, but a tight home win looks likeliest right now, according to The Standard.
*Liverpool 2-0 Burnley: Goals have not exactly been flowing freely for either of these two sides lately; Liverpool's last three league outings have yielded a sum total of one goal, while Burnley's last four have all ended 1-0 - three against and one for. We can see that run of 1-0s ending on Thursday, but not in a good way for the visitors, according to The SportMole.
The Clarets are well organised and are by no means opposition which Liverpool's front three will be viewing as easy fodder to get back in goalscoring form, but they should have enough to return to winning ways against a team that has really struggled on the road this season.
