“Team is broken”, “Forget a title race” – Liverpool fans react to shock 1-0 defeat to Burnley

Liverpool’s long unbeaten home run came to a devastating end on Thursday night, as the Reds lost 1-0 at home to Burnley.

Liverpool 0-1 Burnley

Premier League (19), Anfield
January 21, 2021

Goal: Barnes pen 83′

After a poor run of results, Jurgen Klopp‘s champions needed a win against a well-drilled Clarets outfit.

As was the case against Man United on Sunday, Liverpool failed to create anything of note in the first half, barring one glorious chance that saw Divock Origi hit the crossbar.

Despite playing slightly better after the break, the hosts’ end product continued to be woeful and they were punished late on.

Alisson fouled Ashley Barnes in the area and the Burnley striker stepped up and fired home the penalty, sealing a momentous victory in the process.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s defeat on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s forum.


An appalling performance was lambasted after the final whistle…

“Team is broken. Big clearout needed at the end of this season.”
