Georginio Wijnaldum is in line to play his 50th game for Liverpool in this afternoon’s Premier League clash with Burnley.

In addition to the above fact, with the help of club statistician Ged Rea we reveal 10 other key pre-match stats...

Liverpool have won five of the six Premier League meetings between the teams, with the sole Burnley success coming at Turf Moor last season.

In those games, the Reds have netted 13 times, conceding three. Liverpool have won all three home clashes in the Premier League, scoring on eight occasions. 

The last Liverpool player to hit a hat-trick against Burnley was Yossi Benayoun in a 4-0 Anfield win in September 2009.

The Reds are looking to beat Burnley for a fifth time in a row at Anfield for the first time since 1925-26 when they also recorded five in succession.

There has been one goalless draw at Anfield in 40 league meetings - that came in December 1920.

The Reds have had a player dismissed in each of the last two matches - Sadio Mane and Joe Gomez. Never in their history has that happened in three games in succession. 

Liverpool have kept four successive league clean sheets at Anfield since the defeat to Crystal Palace back in April. The last time they kept a fifth top-flight home shut-out was in February 2007 (in a sequence of nine matches).

The Reds are five goals short of recording 200 under Jürgen Klopp in all competitions, while they have never lost back-to-back league games under the boss.

In the Premier League era Liverpool have earned 999 points at Anfield.

Burnley picked up seven points away from home in the whole of last season, but already this term they have four from two games. So far in this campaign the Clarets have scored four times away from home. It took them 10 games to net as many goals last season.
