Burnley 0-3 Liverpool: Reds maintain winning start

Liverpool made it a club record 13-game winning streak in the Premier League with a 3-0 victory at Burnley on Saturday.

The result proved much more comfortable than many had expected from Jurgen Klopp’s side heading into the game.

Victory sees the Reds stay two points ahead of Manchester City in second and already four points ahead of third place, currently occupied by Leicester City.

Liverpool started to dominate from midway through the first half and took the lead in bizarre fashion in the 33rd minute when Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross from deep took a deflection off Chris Wood before looping over Nick Pope in the Burnley goal.

The home side never looked like scoring and the game was arguably over before half-time when Liverpool took advantage of a misplaced pass from Ben Mee inside his own half, leading to Sadio Mane coolly finishing off a one-on-one to make it 2-0.

Burnley were well beaten when Roberto Firmino added a third, 10 minutes from the end. The Clarets won’t face such tough opposition every week and return from the international break with a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday 14 September 2019.
