Returning home in pursuit of their 31st victory of the season saw the Reds forced to settle for sharing the points. Liverpool lost their lead against Burnley in a 1-1 draw at Anfield.

A prescient Jurgen Klopp previewed this fixture, calling Burnley a “results machine.” Since the restart, Burnley have performed with particular pluckiness away from home, which was the case on Merseyside.

Liverpool dominated early, creating plenty of chances but unable to convert and make them count. Sean Dyche’s demanding and disciplined approach was on full display as the Reds required patience to break down the visitors.

When Liverpool did pick up the pace and began parting Burnley’s defence they ran into Nick Pope riding a rich vein of form. There were moments when the Reds ramped up their final third fluidity only to fail in the finishing.

Eventually, Andrew Robertson took the lead for Liverpool with a beautiful headed goal but they should have been two or three goals clear by the half.

Letting Burnley linger in the match cost the Reds dearly. Burnley capitalized on a free-kick after the second drinks break. With Liverpool unable to punish the visitors, Burnley scented an opportunity to steal a win. In fact, both sides spurned a late chance to take all three points in the final moments.

The draw meant Liverpool lost the chance to be the first club to win every home match but the title remains theirs.

Here are four findings from the match.
