Liverpool may have put in one of the worst performances this season at Anfield, but to play that badly and still go away with the three points is a very good sign and can help stow away the fears of playing bus-parking teams in the league.

Liverpool came out 2-1 winners against Burnley. Ashley Barnes scored early on for the Clarets, but by Georginio Wijnaldum got the Reds level just before half-time and Emre Can scored a lovely low drive in the 61st minute to give the Reds the lead.

Jürgen Klopp’s men were far from their best though. They were sloppy in possession, second to every ball and made silly mistakes all over the pitch. The first goal by Burnley was well placed but it epitomised how poor the Reds had been in the opening period of the game.

In these kind of games, you usually need your striker to pull something out of nothing, however, today it was Liverpool’s two central midfielders who did just that. At the end of the day, Liverpool got the points so we can’t complain to much..
