Liverpool seek to extend unbeaten run

02 March 2015, 15:06

LONDON - Liverpool look to make it 12 straight unbeaten in the league when they host lowly Burnley. The Reds are two points off a Champions League qualifying spot after beating champions Manchester City on Sunday.

Fresh off a win over the reigning champions, the Premier League's hottest team casts an eye towards the other end of the table as they attempt to extend an impressive run in midweek.

Liverpool beat Manchester City 2-1 on Sunday to make it 11 straight league games without loss. The win lifted the Reds to fifth place, two points behind Manchester United in the final Champions League qualifying place.

There's little time to celebrate though for Brendan Rodgers' team as Burnley go to Anfield on Wednesday.

And while the Clarets are in the relegation zone after winning just one of their last 10 league matches, Liverpool know it won't be easy.

All they have to do is remember back to Boxing Day and a struggle to record a hard-fought 1-0 success in the reverse fixture at Burnley.

"We have just got to keep going now," Jordan Henderson said after the City game. "We've got another big game on Wednesday against Burnley and that will be tough for us as we found out when we went there.

"They'll make it difficult but this result will give us great confidence. We've got momentum and we've just got to keep building and finish strongly."
