Burnley boss Dyche still expects to face 'hungry' Liverpool

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is expecting a competitive Liverpool for their trip to Anfield.

Liverpool need three wins from their remaining four fixtures to surpass Manchester City's record points total of 100 set in 2017/18 and boast a 100 per cent record at Anfield heading into their penultimate home match.

Asked if the trip to Merseyside is less intimidating without fans there, Burnley boss Dyche said: “No, not necessarily. I mean, you've still got very good players in front of you – top players, in fact, some of them.

“They look hungry to me. They look like they want to achieve other markers in the season.

“I think it is obviously more so when there's a full house there, but I'm saying it's still not an easy task, whether it's a full house there or not.

“I mean, Man City had that a real edge to them when we played them and a real sharpness to them in their game.

“I can't presuppose anything other than Liverpool will be ready to play."
