Nothing is going well for Liverpool! Beaten 1-0 at Anfield Road by Burnley, the Reds and Xherdan Shaqiri greatly jeopardized their chances of retaining their title.
Liverpool had not lost at home in the Premier League since April 23, 2017, the day Crystal Palace won 2-1 before going on 68 games without a setback. This almost historic defeat relegates the formation of Jürgen Klopp to 6 points of leaders Manchester United.
As tight as ever, Burnley forced the decision on a penalty converted by Ashley Barnes in the 83rd which had been awarded after a foul by goalkeeper Alisson. Even if the opposing pressure was total and even if goalkeeper Nick Pope was saved by his crossbar on a strike from Divock Origi, Burnley did not suffer excessively to sign this clean sheet.
Established as Sunday against Manchester United (0-0), Xherdan Shaqiri was not the most disappointing offensive element of the Reds. Author of a very good start, the Balois however slowly declined until his replacement by the Japanese Takumu Minamino in the 84th.
