Liverpool collected another three valuable points after stretching their winning streak to four this season with a 3-0 victory over Burnley.
The short trip to Lancashire saw the Reds meet a stubborn Burnley outfit in the initial stages before Liverpool flexed their muscles and eased to a comfortable victory, ensuring the manager maintained his smile throughout.
Trent Alexander-Arnold was the man to find the breakthrough as the clock ticked over the half-hour mark, when a cross destined for the box sensationally found the back of the net.
Upon closer inspection, it was deemed an own goal through a deflection by Burnley‘s Chris Wood.
It didn’t take long, however, for Liverpool to add to the home side’s woes as Sadio Mane was teed up perfectly for his fourth goal this season by Roberto Firmino, after capitalising on Burnley‘s loose play.
The Brazilian was sensational throughout and, although an attempt at an audacious bicycle-kick went unrewarded, Firmino added to the score 10 minutes from time with an emphatic finish after a lovely piece of breakaway play from the Reds.
That strike saw him become the first Brazilian to score 50 in the Premier League.
The Reds’ goalscorers will rightfully be praised for their efforts, but importantly Liverpool kept their first clean sheet of the season, much to Adrian‘s obvious delight.
The record-breaking 13th straight Premier League win ensures the Reds head into the first international break of the season on a high, where their return to action will see them take on Newcastle at Anfield on September 14.
