MONDAY, JANUARY 1ST
The holiday fixture list ends with a quick turn-around (for Liverpool, at least) against a surprisingly strong Burnley. A win puts the Reds level on points with Manchester United (who play immediately after our match), and puts us 6 and 7 points clear of Arsenal and Tottenham (who have 1 and 2 games in hand, respectively). That said, Burnley should be a tough test, and a win, while appreciated, is far from a given.
