Watching Liverpool vs Burnley: Your Ultimate Viewing Guide
In the heart of the Premier League’s pulsating race, Liverpool are gearing up to rekindle their title aspirations this weekend, with Burnley making their way to the iconic Anfield. This match-up is more than just a game; it’s a quest for redemption for the Reds, who are eager to leave behind the sting of their recent Arsenal setback.
Reds’ Resolve Tested
Last week’s encounter was a tough pill to swallow for Klopp’s brigade, as they faced a rare defeat at the hands of Arteta’s Arsenal, with a 3-1 scoreline that not only dented their spirits but also their standing in the title race. This slip-up handed their rivals a golden ticket to leapfrog them in the table. Yet, with the season far from over, Liverpool know the importance of shaking off the disappointment and avoiding a mid-season tumble.
Burnley, under Vincent Kompany’s stewardship, arrives with their own set of challenges, sitting uncomfortably away from safety. The Reds, however, have fond memories of their previous encounter, securing a confident 2-0 victory. This upcoming clash offers Liverpool an ideal chance to get their campaign back on an upward trajectory.

Navigating the Broadcast Blackout
For UK fans, the usual live TV experience will be amiss due to the match falling into the traditional 3pm blackout period, a rule aimed at preserving the matchday experience. This means no live broadcast on television, a rarity that fans have not encountered since the new year dawned.
Fear not, as there are still ways to catch the action. The radio waves will carry the live match commentary, and highlights will be readily available on BBC One’s Match of the Day at 10:30pm GMT. For those more digitally inclined, the Sky Sports app and YouTube channel will serve up highlights from 5:15pm GMT.
Global Fans in Luck
The blackout doesn’t extend globally, so international fans, and people with tech savvy VPN’s like those available from our friends at LibertyShield; have a plethora of options. In North America, FUBO and the USA Network will provide live coverage. European viewers can turn to DAZN and Viaplay for their football fix. Regardless of where you are, LFCTV promises comprehensive post-match analysis, including commentary, highlights, and full match replays.
