“Even referees can’t stop us”: Some Liverpool fans rejoice important 4-2 win vs Burnley + Match report

Liverpool v Burnley Report – Liverpool match report

Liverpool returned to winning ways with a comfortable 4-2 win over Burnley at a windy Anfield. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino netted the brace for the home side, while the away side got on the scoresheet via Ashley Westwood and Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

The Clarets led in the sixth minute when a swung in Westwood corner went straight into the back of the net. Replays showed that James Tarkowski clearly impeded Alisson, not allowing the keeper to punch that ball.

Liverpool equalised 14 minutes later when Mohamed Salah slid one ball across goal and it squirmed through to Firmino, who had a simple tap-in from two yards.

They took the lead around the half-hour mark when Adam Lallana charged down a Bardsley clearance and the ball did some actions before falling into the path of Mane, who finished it first time.

Twenty-three minutes from time, Heaton miskicked the ball, allowing Salah to go straight in on goal. Charlie Taylor made a good recovering tackle but Firmino was there to tap the rebound in.

Burnley pulled one back in the 91st minute when Gudmundsson made an uncharted run at the back post and scored. But Mane ensured that the scoreline remained comfortable when he rounded Heaton and passed the ball into an empty net.

This win keeps Jurgen Klopp’s men within one point of leaders Manchester City, with eight games still to play.

Here’s how their fans reacted after the game:
