VINTAGE DYCHE

DREAM TEAM POINTS: Liverpool 1 Burnley 1

Burnley produced another brilliant away performance to hold Liverpool at Anfield

That’s about as vintage Liverpool and Burnley as you can get.

The Reds boasted over 70% possession and had 35 – yes 35 shots – but that’s all irrelevant when the Clarets came away with a valiant point.

Sean Dyche’s spirited side actually went ahead through Scott Arfield’s strike but Liverpool were level almost immediately when Mohamed Salah fired home in front of the Kop.

Dominic Solanke was denied by the crossbar and Burnley’s stand-in goalkeeper Nick Pope turned into Peter Shilton late on to ensure the visitors remain unbeaten away from home.

In fact, they’ve taken FIVE points from Stamford Bridge, Wembley (Tottenham, if you were puzzled for a second) and Anfield before the end of September.

Heroic.

Despite their inability to find a winner the game served as further evidence of the brilliant piece of business the Reds made when they signed Salah for £34m this summer.

The Egyptian’s equaliser took his season goal tally to five already and his goal involvement (goals and assists) per minute played is more than one every game now.

Not bad for a ‘flop’ from Chelsea.
