Fabinho and Divock Origi both expect a tricky evening when Liverpool face Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.
The Reds won both games against the Clarets last season, but were made to sweat after going behind in the two fixtures.
Burnley have made a decent start to the season, powering past Southampton before falling to a narrow defeat at Arsenal and earning a point away to Wolves.
Origi hailed the atmosphere in the camp ahead of the final game before the international break, but knows it’s a difficult trip.
“We are all super motivated,” he told LFC Later. “In training we are having a lot of fun, the weather is good and the pitch is nice.
“We’re building on something, so we feel like we are getting closer and closer together.
“You can see on the pitch everyone is very aggressive in a good sense and we just want to win against Burnley.
“That would be a good first part of the season as it’s one of the toughest games, Burnley.
“I played there last year and it was tough, so we know how it’s going to be but we are ready.
“We are talented, we have a good mentality and we just have to give it everything and hopefully we will be OK.”
Fabinho echoed those sentiments, but reckons the Reds set themselves a healthy benchmark with their display in last weekend’s 3-1 victory against Arsenal.
He’s ‘really confident’ that Liverpool will leave with their peerless 100% record still intact.
“It would be ideal for us to go into this break with another victory in the Premier League,” the Brazilian told Liverpoolfc.com.
“We’ve started really well, we’re the only team to have won the first three games.
“We know that playing Burnley away is always very difficult.
“Last season was really tough, but we’re really confident and know that a fourth victory will be a great step for the start of the season. So we will play in the same way and go after the win.
“We knew the game against Arsenal would be very difficult, one of the big teams in England, so we got to show our quality against such a strong, quality team.
“I think we played an excellent game, we won – which was most important – and I think it serves as an example performance for the rest of the season.
“So we can look at the good things we did and put them into practice in future games as well.”
Each away trip in the Premier League can seem daunting in some ways, but once again, it’s a case of our title ambitions relying on these kind of tests being passed.
Realistically, Liverpool should be going into the break on the back of a comfortable victory, and a welcome clean sheet.
