And the Reds have faded against teams they've been expected to win. The pair has combined to score Burnley's last 9 goals in the Premier League, of which Barnes has scored 5. Van Dijk, who now earns around £125k-a-week, could receive an upfront loyalty bonus worth £5 million, while he is set to receive a further £4 million when he reaches 150 games for the Reds.
Today: Crystal Palace v Brighton & Hove Albion (2:30pm); Cardiff City v West Ham United; Leicester City v Fulham; Newcastle United v Everton; Southampton v Tottenham Hotspur; Huddersfield Town v AFC Bournemouth; Manchester City v Watford (7:30pm).

Roma had won the first leg 2-1 in Italy. His xGchain90 of 0.68 also indicates that his build-up play is also effective. The trio of Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain aren't that far from competing for a first-team place.
Lallana started to pull the strings in midfield with Firmino, the other change from last weekend's goalless Merseyside derby, leading the forward press. James Milner has a muscle injury and is doubtful for the game on Sunday.
"I think it was a foul but there are more serious fouls in the history of football and we have to react better".
"We always said we wanted to be in a position to fight for the top spot in the league and we are still in it", added the German.
