Now it can be officially recognized – Liverpool is in crisis. The team literally got on the field.
In the eighteenth round match, Klopp decided on radical substitutions. Left Firmino and Salah in reserve – the idea failed. Burnley even organized three shots on target in the first half. Of course, Liverpool had chances – goalkeeper Nick Pope was great. The England goalkeeper is one of the main heroes of the match. At the same time, one cannot say that Liverpool pressed the opponent to the goal for a long period.
In the second half, Klopp released a fresh Salah, but he also failed to break through Pope, although he had two chances to score. As a result, the case turned into a foul by Alisson in his own penalty area. Burnley’s rare exit to the gate was marked by a goal. Barnes scored a memorable penalty kick.
Burnley is pulling out a historic victory. Liverpool are in danger of falling out of the European Cup zone.
