Darwin Nunez finishes Burnley’s match in front of Liverpool fan

Liverpool return to the top of the Premier League as the biggest league crowd in Anfield’s 132-year history turns out to visit Burnley. There was also an undeniable feeling that the title-chasing team had the fighting capacity, the options and the courage to go one-on-one with Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp was far from their relentless best against a Burnley side that had squandered two individual matches by 2-1 scores, they had excuses at hand. Alisson was absent through illness, while Trent Alexander-Arnold was forced off at half-time with a suspected recurrence of a knee injury.

“It’s the same area in the same knee,” said a worried Liverpool coach, who also does not have the influence of Mohamed Salah and Dominik Szoboszlai. “He felt it when his nails got stuck in the grass. We’ll have to wait and see.”

Klopp’s frustration boiled over when Liverpool were denied a penalty for a Wilson Odobert grab on Jota. The Liverpool manager was booked for his protests and his mood deteriorated when Burnley levelled moments later. O’Shea timed his near-post run to perfection at a Josh Brownhill corner. Soaring above the smaller Liverpool duo of Díaz and Wataru Endo, the Burnley central defender dispatched a thumping header into the top corner.
