Liverpool started the Premier League season off with a 3-0 win against Norwich at Carrow Road which also saw the long-awaited return of Virgil van Dijk to the Premier League. Their next challenge will be against Burnley who lost their first game of the season 2-1 to Brighton, and they will be looking to bounce back as they try and avoid relegation this season.
The return of van Dijk also means a greater aerial presence for Liverpool at corners and free kicks. Most of van Dijk’s goals for Liverpool have come from corners and it will prove a challenge for the Dutchman due to their strong aerial ability.
The last meeting between the two teams saw Liverpool win 3-0 at Turf Moor thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino, Nathaniel Phillips, and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain. Most notably, Phillips was able to score a goal from a corner showing that Burnley can be breached, and with the ability Van Dijk possess it could happen again.
