Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is not ruling out the possibility of pulling off a shock at Anfield against Liverpool on Saturday.


In desperate need of points in order to help their cause of surviving in the Premier League, the Clarets will visit Liverpool’s home ground this weekend.


The 37-year-old manager is well aware of the daunting task his team will have on their hands to stop the league leaders on home turf in Jurgen Klopp’s last season.




However, he does not wish to play down his team’s chances, insisting that in football anything can happen. All that the Clarets need to do, according to Kompany, is to do everything right and also have certain things going their way.


“It’s football, things happen in the game”, Kompany said at a press conference.



“You go to Anfield, you’ve got to do everything right, you’ve got to have a few things going your way as well.”


On how he and his players will prepare for the match, Kompany added: “The biggest thing we can control is what we have to do on the day and that’s how we prepare for the game.”



Burnley have to bridge a gap of seven points that has developed between themselves and Luton Town to get out of the drop zone, though they have played a game more.
