Harvey Elliott shows LFC fans the future on “excellent” Anfield homecoming

Liverpool made it two from two to start the season with a 2-0 win over Burnley, with Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota guiding the Reds to the win in front of a full Anfield.

Liverpool 2-0 Burnley

Premier League (2), Anfield
August 21, 2021

Goals: Jota 19′, Mane 69′

It was an occasion that was 529 days in the waiting, and a full Anfield crowd marked their return

After a tentative start, Diogo Jota would provide a reason to celebrate with a lovely glancing header to put a dent into Burnley‘s plans to stall any dead ball situation.

The Clarets did have their moments with the Reds guilty of a misplaced pass or two, but it wasn’t the case in the build-up to Liverpool’s second having personified liquid football with Sadio Mane the one to net.

There would be other attacks of note but the scoreboard would remain the same on a day where Harvey Elliott impressed on his first Premier League start and Alisson key in keeping a clean sheet.

Here’s how Reds supporters reacted to the victory on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s comments section.
