Liverpool heads into Week 28 of the 2016-17 English Premier League season 14 points behind Chelsea, and with ten weeks left, it doesn't seem like Jurgen Klopp's side is going to claim the championship, unless a miracle happens.
"I fancy Liverpool to get the job done as most of their problems against this kind of opposition have come in away games, but the stakes could not be higher for Klopp's side on a day when they simply have to get the win".
Jurgen Klopp's side have an exemplary record against teams around them in the table, but all five of their defeats this season have come against clubs now in the bottom half, and Neville believes this is an issue they must address.
Burnley competed very well for most of the game, as they have for the majority of their matches this season, although they lacked creativity in the final third.
"Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson are not available".
"We usually win good games, but the bad games and the average games we need to be challenging too". We will try all we can.
That bit of good fortune - for fortunate it nearly certainly was - might have been enough to plant a seed of doubt in Burnley while simultaneously injecting Liverpool with some temporary confidence.
The former Celtic striker said on BBC Radio 5 live: "Jurgen Klopp will be disappointed with that performance but it's all about the result".
The Clarets have become one of the most feared teams when stepping out on home soil, but they can not reproduce their form travelling away from Turf Moor.
"We can't just say we can only concentrate on counter attacks, set pieces, whatever".
They are unbeaten in 17 Premier League home games against promoted sides since losing to Blackpool in the 2010-11 campaign (W12, D5).
"But then we didn't have the fighting spirit".
Liverpool were restricted to potshots, just like in the Clarets' 2-0 home success against the Reds at Turf Moor in August, but this time Can picked out the bottom corner to win the points for his side.
If Anfield was relieved when Wijnaldum levelled, it is safe to assume Divock Origi shared those feelings.
"We need to feel free for playing football and we have had good sessions this week". "The more we do that, the stronger the team gets, and I think that's been shown over a long period now". The main thing for us is to keep working hard at our game. "It is wonderful to play there and it would be important for the club".
