“These Reds are bottling nothing”, “Eight to go” – Liverpool fans react to 4-2 win over Burnley

Liverpool fought back from an early upset to seal a 4-2 victory over Burnley, remaining just one point behind Man City at the top of the Premier League.

The Reds conceded their first league goal since the start of February when Ashley Westwood’s corner evaded Alisson, who was pinned down by two Clarets players.

But a brace from Roberto Firmino and a well-taken strike from Sadio Mane gave the hosts a comfortable lead, with Mohamed Salah pushing for a record 50th strike in the English top flight for Liverpool.

It wasn’t to be for the Egyptian, and his side endured a late scare as Johann Berg Gudmundsson beat Alisson to make it 3-2, only for Mane to polish off the game with a tap-in on the break in stoppage time.

On a wild afternoon at Anfield the result was all that mattered, and the Reds have now kept the pressure on City in the title race.

Here’s how supporters saw Liverpool’s 4-2 win on Facebook, Twitter and the This is Anfield forums.


Referee Andre Marriner came in for criticism for the opener…

“Their first goal was sad refereeing! Outfield player gets a free for being jumped on. Bring on VAR!”

Shayne Rochfort on Facebook.


Lallana returned to the side and produced an impressive display…

“Where’s all the Lallana haters?

“Fair play to him.”

Gavin Denning on Facebook.


Doubles for Bobby and Mane earned big praise…

“The player we need to be in form the most is Bobby and today he was more like his old self. When Bobby plays well so does Liverpool.”

And fans’ hopes were retained in the title race…

“Let’s keep this up and hope City mess up. Have faith Reds YNWA.”
