Liverpool faced defeat in their second game of the 2016-17 season at the hands of Burnley by a scoreline of 2-0.

Liverpool fans were confident of another win as they traveled to Burnley after a scintillating display of attacking prowess in a narrow 4-3 win over Arsenal. But they were in for a shock as the Reds were undone by a very mechanical Burnley side who made their few chances count.

Liverpool dominated the whole game and had 26 attempts compared to Burnley’s 3, but the home side were efficient in converting their chances as they raced to a 2-0 lead in the first half. They did an admirable job at keeping the Reds’ attackers at bay, especially after their red hot display against Arsenal.

The twitteratis were out in full force against Liverpool, trolling the side and their fans as the club fell to a 2-0 defeat to comparative minnows Burnley while Liverpool fans expressed their disappointment on the famous social media platform.

Stats also seemed to back the popular opinion that Liverpool are yet to show a consistent run of form beginning from the pre-season and were very stale in possession despite rocking a record possession percentage.

While Burnley’s Steven Defour was plauded for a near-flawless performance on his Burnley debut, fans and pundits alike pointed fingers at the displays by Clyne, Mignolet and Sturridge.
