The plan is clear: we have to win football games. So, when Burnley travel to Anfield on Sunday for the lunch-time kick-off, it is fair to say that both teams will have something to play for.
Just three days later, they face Bayern at the Allianz Arena in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, which is locked at 0-0 on aggregate.
The Clarets relied on diagonal balls into in-form strike pair Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood but had little joy. and in their desperation to get back in the game, the home side gave the ball away cheaply too often, leaving themselves exposed at the back. It was the beginning of the second half that Dyche would have rued as, while not creating many clear cut chances, they enjoyed a good spell of possession but failed to test Alisson before Firmino sealed the points.
"I think it was a foul but there are more serious fouls in the history of football and we have to react better".
Tottenham, who have managed only one point from their last three Premier League games, will have to do without their manager Maurico Pochettino on the sidelines, though.
Aguero and Salah have scored 18 and 17 goals respectively this term, a run which puts the latter in contention to retain the top scorer's prize he won last term with 32 goals in 36 matches. We knew it is really hard against Burnley, and it was again. "We have to be really good to beat this team, (Sean) Dyche is doing an fantastic job perhaps with not the best circumstances in the league".
Manchester City hope Saturday's meeting with Watford can offer them the same sort of impetus their opponents provided for Premier League title rivals Liverpool. The trio of Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain aren't that far from competing for a first-team place. We knew that the key game to win was the one we played against them and from that moment we started to narrow the gap. We can expect Liverpool to go out with attacking intent against a resurgent but defensive Burnley side and expect the Reds to win with a comfortable scoreline.
Andy Robertson has hailed the "special atmosphere" at Anfield ahead of Liverpool's home clash with Burnley this weekend.
