Following their Premier League status being secured, Burnley appeared to take their foot off the gas as they were hammered 4-0 at home to Leeds United. Goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell has now lost all four of his league appearances, conceding at least three goals in each game. The Clarets’ number one, Nick Pope, is still a doubt for Gameweek 37.

Burnley host a buoyed Liverpool this week after the Reds pulled out a 95th minute winner, from the most unlikely source, to win 2-1 at West Brom. In a magical last-minute moment, Liverpool shot-stopper, Alisson Becker became the sixth goalkeeper to score in a Premier League match. After scoring his 22nd goal of the season, Mo Salah remains joint-top in the Golden Boot race. If Nick Pope is out in the midweek game, Salah will have a great opportunity to move ahead of Harry Kane.
