Cape Town - Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes his players are relishing the opportunity to take on Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.

The Clarets were given a tough start to their Premier League campaign with trips to Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, and Manchester City in their first five away games. 

However, Dyche's men have dealt brilliantly with the challenge, beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before holding Spurs to a draw, and is confident they can do it again at the Reds.

"They obviously had a tough result last weekend. It was a different kind of result [against Sevilla]," Dyche said, according to the Lancashire Telegraph, when asked about Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Sevilla after losing 5-0 at Manchester City.

"I was there (on Wednesday) night, and there were a lot of good things about their performance. They are a good side, without a shadow of a doubt, and they have a lot of strength in depth.

"Our players are aware these are tough places to go to but we have enjoyed the challenge so far this season.

"A lot was made when the fixtures came out - Chelsea away, Tottenham away and now away to Liverpool.

"We have delivered decent performances away from home and we are looking to do that again."

Kick off is at 16:00.
