Worth mentioning: Liverpool were held to a goalless draw by the visiting Manchester United on Sunday. The Reds are on a poor form and won just one of their last five outings, trashing Aston Villa’s youths 1:4 in a FA Cup meeting, but have failed to triumph in any of the four Premier League games in the process. After destroying Crystal Palace 0:7 in December Liverpool have scored just one goal across the following four league clashes. One of their last five outings resulted in over 2,5 goals, while two saw both involved sides to score.
Burnley lost 1:0 away to West Ham at the weekend. The Clarets are on a run of two back-to-back defeats, both with the same 1:0 score and won only one of the last five matches. None of the teams involved in those five encounters were able to score more than a goal and understandably all five featured under 2,5 goals and one witnessed goals at both ends. Just one of Burnley’s last seven and two of the last twelve clashes were won by the visitors. The Clarets are clearly struggling when it comes to scoring, as they’ve hit more than one past their opponents in two of their last twenty games.
