Tough first half
Even tho Burnley is in the bottom part of the Premier League table, Vincent Kompany’s team is always a tough opponent. Also for Liverpool at Anfield Road. After 30 minutes, the home team was finally able to take the lead, but in the most surprising way you could think of. A corner by Trent Alexander-Arnold was headed against the back of the next by Diogo Jota. The Portguese attacker who isn’t familiair for his height, headed the ball perfectly. When the dust settled and Liverpool looked to bring a 1-0 lead back to the dressing room, it was Dara O’Shea who scored the equaliser. A bitter disappointment for Liverpool on the verge of half-time.
After a bit of confusion Luis Diaz, headed Liverpool to a 2-1 lead. Even a lengthy VAR check, couldn’t help Burnley in this situation. Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez ended all dbouts whem he scored the 3-1 in the 79th minute. This goal was the last goal of the game that brought Liverpool back to the first place. Now they start preparing to defend this first spot in the away match against Brentford next week.
