Burnley 1-2 Liverpool

Premier League, Turf Moor
January 1, 2018

Goals: Gudmundsson 87′; Mane 61′, Klavan 90+4′

It was a horrible spectacle for much of the afternoon, with a weakened Reds side never at their best against a defensively resolute Clarets outfit.

Sadio Mane‘s stunning strike fired the visitors in the front just after the hour mark, but Johann Berg Gudmundsson equalised with three minutes left.

Just when it looked as though two points had been thrown away, Ragnar Klavan stole in to head home in the fourth minute of stoppage time, sending both the players and the travelling fans wild.

Here’s how the supporters reacted to the game on social media…


Lovren deservedly received lots of praise, assisting the winner and defending excellently throughout…
