SEAN Dyche has warned that Liverpool have far more to their game than just the goals of Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian could be facing a fight to be fit after limping out of the Reds' 2-1 win over Leicester City on Saturday, a game in which his double took his tally so far this season to 23.

Even if Salah does take his place at Turf Moor Dyche believes his side have to be wary of the the threat coming from all angles from Jurgen Klopp's side, even if they have fond memories of this fixture last season when the Clarets won 2-0.

"He’s a fine player, but it isn’t just about him by the way. The top teams in the division, the superpowers as I call them, they have threats all over the place," Dyche said.

“You can’t just look at one player. Harry Kane, what a player, what a professional, but Tottenham ain’t bad elsewhere. You look around that team and think if he has a quiet day, they have enough to open things up, Liverpool are the same, Man City too obviously etc, etc. Arsenal still have question marks about them, but they look decent to me.

“So you can’t worry about one player, you have to look at the whole situation and balance it off against what you are.”

Burnley have every reason to be confident against Liverpool. They drew at Anfield earlier this season and suffered a narrow defeat on Merseyside last season, as well as claiming that memorable win at Turf Moor.

But Dyche insists that history will mean little on New Year's Day.

"That’s not a given for Monday," Dyche said when it was put to him that all three previous meetings had been close.

"There are all sorts of factors which go into that - your planning, them having a quiet day, referee’s decisions. Let’s get it right, if you both perform at the top of your game, those big clubs win.

“There are a lot of other factors which come in to make those results, to make things happen which are not the norm. We’ve done it more often this season, but it doesn’t guarantee anything.

“They were really dominant that day (Burnley's 2-0 win last season). We scored two good goals, but they were very dominant, not so much with golden chances, but with the feel of the game and that’s another way you have to ride these games out.

“I’m sure you all saw the comments about do you defend this way or defend that way or attack and all of that. I think it’s very easy to say that from the top of the tree, but not so easy when it you are us, you know what I mean? Let’s face it, if you have a basketball match with Manchester City, I’m telling you now, there’s only one winner.”
