Burnley 1 Liverpool 2

New Years Day wasn’t pleasant, wind, rain and a trip to Turf Moor. For a long time the game wasn’t much different to the weather and it looked like hard work for both teams. A goal started to look unlikely until Sadio Mane unleashed a volley the keeper probably didn’t see until it hit the net. It wasn’t in keeping with the game but it got us going for about fifteen minutes when in truth we might have scored two or three more. As time ticked by it seemed as if we were trying to protect what we’d got but we’re not very good at it, time wasting and all that isn’t something we do well and when Burnley scored it felt like we’d let a win go. How we then scrambled the winner only those on the pitch know but we did and we had an unlikely hero in Klavan. It made the getting out of bed on New Years Day just that little bit more worthwhile.
