Sturridge, Liverpool vs Burnley

“Same old Liverpool”, “Who’d have thought it?” – Fans react to Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

Liverpool suffered a familiar disappointment as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

Premier League, Anfield
September 16, 2017

Goals: Salah 30′; Arfield 27′

After a gruelling seven days that saw his side lose 5-0 away to Man City and draw 2-2 at home to Sevilla, Jurgen Klopp made seven changes to his starting lineup at Anfield.

Unfortunately, no matter the personnel, the Reds will seemingly always struggle at the back, and Scott Arfield broke the deadlock on 27 minutes after a mixup between Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan.

Mohamed Salah levelled the scores shortly after, but Liverpool were unable to find a winner despite dominating throughout, including 71 percent of possession.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at home to Burnley on social media and our forums.


It was same old Liverpool as Arfield opened the scoring…

“What the hell 80% possession and 1-0 down…”

Reds on the forums.


But Salah struck back within four minutes…

“Salah is going to be as important a signing as Mane. Get in son!”

Solanke came so close to a winner late on…

“One of those days…”

Alex on the forums.


And the final whistle brought a familiar misery…

“We didn’t deserve anything more based on that second half. Shite.”

Libero on the forums.

“Who’s bored of the same old Liverpool and the inability to fix problems. I said before the start of the season that Liverpool will not move forward this year.”

Ross Mills on Facebook.

“We just seem to take the wrong option every time, or the ball is overhit, or we fluff our pass, or we shoot from distance…Groundhog day sadly and Klopp should bear the brunt of the criticism.”
