BOSS Sean Dyche insists he is relishing the Clarets visit to Anfield.

Burnley make the trip to Merseyside having suffered back to back Premier League defeats to drop to 16th in the table, five points clear of the bottom three.

Few will give the Clarets a chance against Jurgen Klopp’s title-chasers.

The Reds drew 0-0 with Everton last weekend and have not lost at home in the league all season.

But the Clarets drew 1-1 at Liverpool last season and led at Turf Moor earlier this season before the visitors rallied to win 3-1.

With home games against Leicester City and Wolves to follow the visit to Anfield, it would seem natural for the Clarets to focus on those fixtures in the battle against the drop.

But Dyche is looking forward to taking on one of the big boys having already beaten Spurs and drawn at Manchester United in recent weeks.

“We know we’ve got Liverpool next and they are different games,” said the Clarets chief.

“Beyond that, we’ve a fair run of games, but even those games (against Liverpool) are great games to have.

“No one is expecting anything of anyone this season (at Anfield), certainly not us going there.”

Dyche’s side strung together an eight game unbeaten top flight run prior to the loss in the North East last week and the Burnley boss believes that form must be taken into account when reflecting on the back to back defeats.

“You lose two and that makes another story,” added Dyche. “But we’d not been beaten in eight, so if you put the two in 10, absolutely terrific.

“The points return in those games is 18 points, nearly two a game in the Premier League is really good.”
