Michael Owen believes that Liverpool will be able to get themselves back to winning ways when they welcome Burnley to Anfield on Saturday.
The former England and Reds striker has predicted that Jurgen Klopp will be able to mastermind a 2-0 win over the Clarets and banish the memories of last week’s capitulation at the hands of Manchester City.
Owen’s predicted was posted on the official Twitter account of BT Sport Score on Friday.

Liverpool can shoot back up the table if Owen’s prediction turns out to be true on Saturday.
The Reds will be without Sadio Mane following his controversial red card at Man City last week when Klopp saw his side beaten 5-0 by the title contenders.
Burnley are currently above Liverpool in the Premier League table with a better goal difference thanks to picking up two wins in their first four fixtures.
The summer signing of Chris Wood appears to have done wonders for Sean Dyche’s side with the ex-Leeds man scoring in last week’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, who sacked Frank de Boer in retaliation.
Liverpool have a brilliant home record against Burnley and will no doubt be comforted in the knowledge that the Clarets have not won at Anfield since 1974 in the old Division One.
