Liverpool do not forgive in a packed Anfield

Klopp's team did not struggle against Burnley. Jota scored again, Salah had a goal disallowed and 18-year-old youth squad Harvey Elliott started.


Two games, two wins. Liverpool have started the Premier League seamless, forceful and solid. No goals conceded in the first two meetings against Norwich City (0-3) and Burnley (2-0). Although it is true that they are not the strongest rivals in the championship, those of Jurgen Klopp have started this season plugged with the aim of setting the pace from the beginning, especially knowing the competitiveness that will be this year in the fight for the title. In an Anfield once again packed to the brim, which You'll Never Walk Alone sang with the same energy as before, the 'reds' passed over the Burnley without complications and leaving new clues about Klopp's plans for this season.The first positive sign was the start of the young Harvey Elliott, just 18 years old, who shone in his first Premier League opening game after playing a few minutes against Norwich. Elliott took up the inside right position and had an impact throughout the game. Nearby were Salah, Alexander-Arnold or Henderson himself. In fact, Elliott gave his first assist but Salah's goal was offside. Minutes before, yes, Diogo Jota had already overtaken Liverpool after finishing off a lateral center from Tsimikas, who was once again the left-handed winger ahead of Robertson. Jota won the game in the eleven against Firmino for the second day in a row and once again demonstrated his reliability heading into goal.

Burnley, who scored zero points in the first two days, managed to score a goal that would have meant the tie but Barnes was also offside. Already in the second half, Mané made the final 2-0 culminating a tremendous team play that began in Van Dijk, continued in Elliott and fell to Alexander-Arnold to provide assistance. The presence of Van Dijk was once again an insurance for the Anfield team, especially when defending the aerial balls and starting the game from behind.
