A lovely sunny day at Anfield, and a massive victory for the Reds. A nail biting end to it secured Liverpool all 3 points as they try to claim Top 4… A nervy first half saw Burnley go infront with a strike from Ashley Barnes, however Liverpool did strike back with Georgino Wijnaldum (after scoring against Arsenal last weekend he claimed another one today) During the second half, Liverpool were a completely new team, and a sweet strike From Emre Can saw Liverpool cruise to a victory 

Simon Mignolet 8

Not much he could do, don’t think he could’ve saved Burnley’s goal. But defended corners brilliantly.

Nathaniel Clyne 7

Another good performance from the Englishman. As usual he was reliable and gave Liverpool the extra pace whilst attacking. 

Joel Matip 9 (MOTM)

Perhaps his best performance in a red shirt. Couldn’t do much with the first goal but was strong physically and aerially.

Ragnar Klavan 7

Again, he didn’t do much. But did what he had to do. Was at fault for the goal we conceded but will certainly come back stronger.

James Milner 7

Not the same old Milly, but can’t blame him. If we play a team who play from the back then most certainly Milner won’t be too good. 

Emre Can 8

His first half performance was not good. But became a leader in the second half, had brilliant vision and WHAT A STRIKE THAT WAS!!!! He came out as a new player. If his first half performance was better, then he would’ve received the MOTM.

Adam Lallana 6

Didn’t even know he was playing… He was completely invisible in this match and didn’t do much. 

Georgino Wijnaldum 9

Two great performances in a week and 2 goals in a week. He has completely improved and is certainly becoming a fan favourite at Anfield. 

Sadio Mané 7

Was decent. Had a brilliant chance to end the game, but didn’t. In the next 2 games Mané will have to step up and carry us.

Divock Origi 7

I have to give him credit for the goal… He’s not the best at crossing but did well to find Gini. Nethertheless, it was an average performance.

Phillipe Coutinho 6

SHOCKING… The worst performance from Coutinho. He only did 1 good thing in the game and that was when we scored. Didn’t do much.

Substitutions:

Ben Woodburn 

Had a good run and had a big chance to end the game…

Lucas Leiva

UNLUCKEEE!! He didn’t get much time on the pitch.
