Jan, 22nd 2021 – Liverpool suffered their first defeat at Anfield in three years as they went down one nil against Burnley to dent their title defence. 

Ashley Barnes fired home a late winner from the penalty spot to secure a famous victory for Burnley. Barnes was tripped in the box by goalkeeper Alisson with seven minutes remaining and converted the resulting penalty to earn all the points. 

The hosts pushed to find the net in the second half but ran out of ideas, Nick Pope making a stunning save to deny Mohamed Salah and fellow substitute Roberto Firmino flicking an effort wide.

Burnley’s shock win lifts them up to 16th in the table, seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Liverpool’s last loss at home was ago against Crystal Palace and they have now fallen six points behind leaders Manchester United.
