It was Origi who had Liverpool‘s best chance of the opening 45 minutes, racing through and hitting the crossbar after an error from Ben Mee.
The Reds came increasingly desperate as the minutes passed, with substitute Roberto Firmino missing a glorious chance with the goal gaping.
Their misery was complete when Ashley Barnes buried a late penalty, following a foul by Alisson, ending their long unbeaten home run.
The Cameroonian did very little wrong throughout the evening, biting into tackles, using the ball well and keeping Burnley‘s attack quiet.
Matip was handed TIA’s Man of the Match award by Joanna Durkan, who said his “front-foot approach and desire to find his forward players was clear to see.”
Meanwhile, the Echo‘s Ian Doyle described the centre-back as “easily Liverpool’s best player,” highlighting a “good interception” in the first half.
Writing for the Independent, Karl Matchett thought Fabinho was his “usual solid self” at the back, with others far more to blame for the defeat.
FotMob noted that Shaqiri produced two key passes at Anfield and won four of his seven duels, as the Swiss tried to make things happens in the final third.
Doyle thought that “far too often he chose the wrong cross,” while Matchett handed him a three-out-of-10 rating and concluded that he was “very poor in the final third again.”
