He Liverpool came from three consecutive games without scoring and Klopp He surprised by leaving two of the members of his attacking trident on the bench: Mohamed
Salah, top performer of the Premier
League, and Robert
Firmino, entering Xherdan
Shaqiri and Divock
Origi at eleven.

Despite the absence of two of their main stars, the 'reds' came out wanting to end their negative streak in front of goal, but it was the 'clarets' who had the clearest start of the game after an exit for grapes from Alisson
Becker that was in charge of solving the own Brazilian goalkeeper.

They were precisely Shaqiri and Origi the attackers of Liverpool who were closest to opening the scoring in the first half. Especially flagrant was an action by the Belgian forward, who failed to take advantage of an error by Ben
Mee and sent to the crossbar a heads up with the goalkeeper Nick
Pope, who despite not having his best season signed a great performance in Anfield.

After the resumption, the ‘red’ avalanche increased, but neither the entry of Salah and Firmino managed to knock down the wall of Burnley. It didn't help either Mike
Dean, which did not review a possible hand of Erik
Pieters in the ‘claret’ area and did not hesitate to indicate the maximum penalty for a fall of Ashley
Barnes, who fainted when he saw that Alisson lunged for the ball.

The ram born in Bath beat the paulista and put an end to the successful succession of victories at home Liverpool that already lasted almost four years.
