Key Stats As Liverpool Keep The Pressure On Against Burnley

Key Stats As Liverpool Keep The Pressure On Against Burnley

Liverpool saw off a poor but spirited Burnley side thanks to doubles from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino. But what were the key stats from a pulsating 4-2 win on Sunday lunchtime at Anfield? Sadio Strikes Again If it seems like I’m doing a section on Sadio Mané every single week, but he’s very quickly become Liverpool’s most influential and important attacker.

We'll come on to those refs in a bit, but when the line-up card came out, that was all that Liverpool fans could talk about. Adam Lallana. Adam Lallana? Adam Lallana!

Player ratings as Liverpool edge past Burnley

I’ll be honest with you, about 10 minutes in I thought this was going to be a foul mouthed rant about officials with some ‘5/10: Didn’t do enough to break Burnley down’ for good measure.

Here’s your ratings from today’s game. Alisson Becker (6): Wasn’t troubled too much …

Naby Keita: The key to a good performance against Burnley

Let's cast our minds back to a cold, dark Wednesday night at Turf Moor in December. Jürgen Klopp took his Liverpool team to take on Sean Dyche's Burnley and selected Naby Keita in central midfield for the second consecutive match after an injury lay-off had seen him reduced to watching his team mates from the side-lines.

Predicted Liverpool lineup after Klopp's Burnley press conference

Jurgen Klopp gave Liverpool fans an injury update today ahead of Burnley's visit to Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday. As expected, judging from Klopp's quotes, Dejan Lovren can only hope for a place on the bench, at most, while the aim with Joe Gomez seems to be a return after the international break, maybe for the matchday squad against Spurs. When asked for a general update regarding first-team squad members, Klopp disclosed:
“Dejan [Lovren] trained yesterday completely …

Sadio Mane insists there is no rivalry among Reds strikers

Liverpool's Sadio Mané has said there is no rivalry whatsoever between himself and The Reds' other star striker Mohamed Salah.
