Ashley Barnes lead

Striker will achieve a first for the Clarets if he scores against Liverpool at Turf Moor on Saturday evening

Burnley striker Ashley Barnes has picked up in 2019/20 where he left off last season.

Having scored against Arsenal on the final day of the 2018/19 campaign, he has been on target in each of his three matches so far this term, striking four times in total against Southampton, Arsenal again and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Barnes now has a chance to make history for Burnley when Sean Dyche's Clarets host Liverpool on Saturday evening.

And the prospect of facing the early league leaders will hold little fear for the 29-year-old, who has a strong record against last season's top six sides.
