Burnley did the unthinkable on Thursday night, beating Liverpool 1-0, leaving Jurgen Klopp and everyone observing in shock and ending the Anfield side's 68-match home Premier League unbeaten streak and extending their scoreless run in the top flight in 2021.

 

The win was Burnley's first at Liverpool since 1974 and sees Jurgen Klopp's team slip further behind the leaders in the Premier League, while their scoreless run in the league was stretched to 438 minutes.

After the match, Klopp said his team wasn't even thinking about defending the Premier League title at this point.

"It's a tough one, not easy to explain," Klopp said. "These boys are not the kind of [people] after a 7-0 to think we'll go like this. They worked tonight hard and it didn't happen. If something doesn't work you have to try harder, more often, longer.

"It was not easy to lose that game and we did it. It's not about blaming, we have to sort it together and we will. In football you don't have a lot of time. We tried a lot, in some moments the right things and some not. That's the problem. You have to break the wall down by trying, in the right mood. We had chances.

"We can't imagine the title race at the moment."

The team sheet started the shock of the night with Mohammed Salah and Firminho left on the bench, starting Belgian forward, Divock Origi and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain alongside Sadio Mane, while picking Xherdan Shaqiri in his starting eleven in midfield.

Burnley, who entered the match four points above the relegation zone, stood tall against Premier League holders Liverpool in the first half, with Nick Pope making a nice save from a well-hit Origi shot shortly after the half-hour.

Liverpool had scored only one goal in their previous four Premier League matches and despite ratcheting up the pressure on the visitors as the first half wore on were unable to find an opener, as Origi hit the post with only Pope to beat just before the break.

Still seeking a breakthrough goal, Klopp brought Firminho and Salah off the bench in the 57th minute as Liverpool looked to keep pace at the top of the table following Wednesday wins from both Manchester clubs.

Burnley took the lead late in the second half when Ashley Barnes converted from the penalty spot after Liverpool keeper Alisson had tripped him up in the area.

For all their pressure and 73% possession, Liverpool struggled to create real openings, with Ben Mee and James Tarkowski outstanding in the center of Burnley's defense.

Liverpool, who last lost at home on April 23, 2017, stay in fourth in the table with 34 points, while Burnley picked up a crucial three points to put distance between them and the relegation zone.
