FT: Liverpool 1-1 Burnley. Liverpool's bid to secure the Premier League points record suffered a knock as Burnley earned a 1-1 draw at Anfield through Jay Rodriguez. The champions had led at the interval through Andy Robertson, but couldn't add to their tally as Nick Pope starred for the Clarets.

OFF THE BAR! Almost a winner for Burnley. Gudmundsson smashes a shot against the bar after Alisson had punched a cross straight into his path.


Salah tries a curler from 25 yards, but it's straight at Pope.


Liverpool are struggling to get on top again here. Is that winning home run coming to an end?

VAR checks for an offside from the deep free kick, but it's judged to be fine. The visitors are level after being under the cosh for so much of the contest.

Tarkowski appears to bundle Salah over as the forward chases Gomez's ball over the top. The referee isn't interested.


Burnley are readying two changes - and so are Liverpool.


BIG CHANCE! Williams and Wijnaldum both have shots blocked before it falls to Salah in space on the right of the area, but his first-time shot balloons over with Pope seemingly not set in the Clarets goal.


Shots on for the champions. This time Fabinho attempts a first-time side-footer from 25 yards, but it deflects off a Burnley defender and flies wide of the other post.


Back up the other end and Mane twists and turns before flashing a low 20-yard shot well wide of target.


SAVE! Alisson shows he's keeping his focus as he gets down to his right to push away Rodriguez's header. The flag was up, so it wouldn't have counted, but the Brazilian didn't know that and had to make sure.


STAT: Burnley's last win over Liverpool came in August 2016 when first half goals from Sam Vokes and Andre Gray gave Sean Dyche's men a 2-0 win at Turf Moor. It is their only victory in the last 14 top-flight meetings.


New half, same old story. It's been pretty much all Liverpool so far. Jones wins it in the midfield and then racers in to space to receive a pass from Salah. The youngster lets fly, but arrows it the wrong side of Pope's right-hand post ... from his point of view.


OFF THE POST! Still no PL goal at Anfield for Firmino this term as he sees a scuffed shot from the left side of the area come back off the far post.

  • 2nd Half

KICK OFF! Burnley get us back underway.

  • End of 1st Half

HT: Liverpool 1-0 Burnley. Robertson's header gives the champions a deserved interval lead.


Pope does it again! Mane shows great strength to hold off his man and manufacture space for the shot. He hammers it towards the top corner, but the Burnley keeper manages to get across to push it to safety.


Two minutes added.


Rodriguez springs the Liverpool offside trap to collect a lofted pass on the right of the area. It's a narrow angle, but he has time and probably should do better with a low shot that fails to trouble Alisson.


Robertson surges past his man down the left and rolls a lovely ball across the six-yard box, but there is no Liverpool shirt close enough to provide the finish.


VIDEO: Robertson's header.


McNeil seizes on another poor Liverpool pass, this time from Robertson. He goes for goal himself this time but Gomez gets across to make an important block.

Andrew Robertson (FC Liverpool) trifft zur Führung gegen den FC Burnley

McNeil pounces upon a sloppy pass from van Dijk and drives towards the Liverpool area. He drills a low ball into the middle, but can't pick out a teammate. Liverpool deal with the resulting corner.


It needed something inspired to get past Pope. The Burnley stopper had seemed to be in a one-man showdown against Salah for a while there. Anyhow, it's a deserved lead for Liverpool.

GOAL! Robertson guides a wonderful header into the far corner from Fabinho's angled ball to the right of the Burnley area.


SAVE! Pope denies Salah once again after the forward had won possession in the Burley area, skipped past and challenge and looked to roll it home.


Rodriguez leads a lone charge for Burnley after the visitors do well to thwart a lengthy period of Liverpool pressing. He has little options as he tries to escape down the right and is eventually crowded out by Robertson and Gomez.


It's a deep delivery into a crowded six-yard box. Alisson is under pressure, but van Dijk rises to get it away. Burnley try again from the right, but once more Liverpool do enough to deal with a tricky situation.


Strong, direct running on the left from McNeil earns the visitors a corner.


Play resumes. Can Burnley get more of a foothold in this game? It's been one-way traffic so far.

Mohamed Salah (FC Liverpool) verzieht gegen den FC Burnley

Cue the obligatory drinks break.


Mane attempts a slick one-two with Salah, but the Egyptian's return ball has too much pace on it. Liverpool looking very lively and sharp. Burnley have barely been in the home side's half.


Another opportunity for Jones. Mane lets Salah's ball roll across his body to the youngster. He takes too long picking his spot and a Burnley body gets in the way to deflect a goal-bound strike off target.

SAVE! Pope flings himself to his left to keep out Salah's volley after the Clarets had struggled to deal with a high ball over the top.


CLOSE! Pope gets down to his right to smother Jones's side-footed effort after Firmino had nudged Robertson's pull-back into the youngster's path.


DID YOU KNOW? Liverpool have won all 27 league matches this season when they have scored the first goal.


Salah steps up and curves it way over the bar. A disappointing attempt from the Egyptian.


The pressure is mounting from Liverpool. Salah is tripped by Rodriguez just outside the area, right of centre.


Twinkle-toes from Mane sees him surge in from the left. Firmino takes over but sees his shot deflected over the bar.


Gomez fizzes a probing ball to Robertson in acres of space on the left. The left back fires a cross towards Salah, but Long does brilliantly inside his own six-yard box to hook it to safety.

STAT: Salah is one goal away from becoming the first Liverpool player to score 20 or more goals in three consecutive top-flight campaigns since Roger Hunt did managed the feat in four campaigns from 1962-66.


All Liverpool so far. Robertson overlaps down the left and gets to Mane's pass inside the area, but sees his low cross diverted behind. Burnley don't deal with the resulting corner as they would hope, but Mane sees a shot blocked before the referee blows for hand ball against the home side.


Wijnaldum turns in the midfield and drives towards goal. He attempts a one-two and almost gets the return via an inadvertent touch off a defender, but Pope is alert and clears his lines.


Head to head in the league at Anfield: Liverpool 23 wins, Burnley 8 wins, 11 draws... In the Premier League era, the Merseysiders have won nine of the 11 meetings and have lost just once.


A pre-match minute's silence was well observed for England legend Jack Charlton, who passed away on Friday.

  • 1st Half

KICK OFF! Liverpool get the contest up and running.


STAT: Burnley have lost just one of their last 12 PL matches. The Clarets have kept 14 clean sheets in the league this term - second only to Liverpool.·

Jay Rodriguez celebrates scoring for Burnley against West Ham.

Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have now scored a combined total of 250 goals in all competitions for the Reds across three seasons. Mane reacted to that milestone during a chat with the club's official website. He said: "I think our target is another 250 again and more trophies with Liverpool. I think it's just unbelievable. It's not easy to play in England and score this. It's just incredible because there are so many good teams and strong defenders, so it's not easy." 

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino - Liverpool's front three

Sean Dyche on Burnley's bid to beat their PL high of seventh spot and 54 points: "I think if we had the full complement of players, I'd be looking at the games we've got and I'd be expecting to get things. That's not because I don't believe in the group we've got, of course, it just means we are still stretched. It is a fact. We are playing back-to-back games in a short space of time. There is a demand on that. So I think I'm slightly more open-minded about that and where we can take it from now on in. Equally, on balance, I would say it is our second-highest total of points since we've been in the Premier League, including the time when the team was in the Premier League before my time here."
