The results machine, as Jürgen Klopp described Burnley, overturned Liverpool’s hopes of tweaking a blank Premier League campaign with a flawless Anfield record. Sean Dyche’s team became the first visitor since Leicester in January 2019 to prevent Liverpool from winning at home in the league thanks to an impeccable finish by Jay Rodriguez and the impressive demonstration of goalkeeper Nick Pope.Liverpool aimed to end their winning campaign with a 100% record at Anfield, but their attempt to become the first high-flying team to do so since Sunderland in 1891-1892 was interrupted by a stubborn and extremely well-organized Burnley team. The pope was once again a figure of authority, promoting his claims to become the number one in England with a beautiful exhibition that was only pierced by the fine head of Andy Robertson in the first half. Liverpool have had several chances to extend their lead, but will need to find comfort at home in an undefeated 58th league game at Anfield. Burnley could also have ended the record, but substitute Johann Gudmundsson rocked the bar late.
