The Reds dropped points at Anfield for the first time in the Premier League this season on Saturday when an organised Burnley side left with a 1-1 draw.
In a game that was dominated by the champions, Liverpool came up against an inspired Nick Pope in the Burnley goal. The stopper produced numerous remarkable saves after another to keep his side in the game.
All of Liverpool’s front three could, and possibly should, have scored in the first half alone, Pope thwarting all three on separate occasions.
It was an unlikely source who eventually did break the deadlock, Andy Robertson found himself unmarked on the right-hand side of the box and powered a header past the previously unbeatable England keeper.
Liverpool continued to create chances and should have put the game beyond doubt on numerous occasions. Their inability to do so was punished in the 69th minute when Jay Rodriguez fired home from the edge of the box.
On replay, the free-kick that led to the resulting goal was falsely awarded for offside, although VAR did not intervene.
The Reds were also denied two penalty appeals, something that particularity angered goalscorer Andy Robertson who made his feeling heard to the officials on the way off after the match.
Here’s how we rated the Liverpool players in the game:
Alisson Becker - 7
Little work to do during the match. Couldn’t do anything about the goal/
Neco Williams - 7
An impressive performance from the youngster on his favoured right-hand side.
Joe Gomez - 6
Some poor touches lead to potential danger, particularity in the second half.
Virgil Van Dijk - 6
Had his moments like Gomez. Dealt with most things with ease as normal though.
Andy Robertson - 8
Scored the opener with a creat header. Could of had a penalty and he told the officials how he felt after the final whistle!
Gini Wijnaldum - 7
Industrious, as ever, without creating too much going forward.
Fabinho - 8
A good all-round performance from the Brazilian who provided the assist for the Robertson’s goal with a beautiful chipped pass.
Curtis Jones - 7
Always wanted the ball and showed his talent with some smart touches around the Burnley box.
Mohamed Salah - 7
A constant danger – perhaps should have scored at least one. Had a great chance to steal it at the death.
Roberto Firmino - 7
The wait goes on for an Anfield goal in the Premier League. He kept the ball well and hit the post.
Sadio Mane - 6
Has a very quiet afternoon in a game that his side dominated. Had a couple of threatening moments.
(Sub) Naby Keita - 7
Continued his good form from the bench and always looked to go forward.
(Sub) Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - 6
Did okay when he came on but hasn’t been his influential self of late.
(Sub) Trent Alexander-Arnold
Tried his best to provide the killer ball from right-back – unlucky not to achieve it.
