 12 March 2017

Liverpool came from behind to secure a win, but impressive performances were hard to find against a Burnley side who’d previously struggled away.

Liverpool 2-1 Burnley

Premier League, Anfield
March 12, 2017

Goals : Wijnaldum 45+1′, Can 61′; Barnes 7′

Simon Mignolet – 6

Was beaten by Burnley’s only shot on target, and other than that he had little to do in terms of shot stopping.

Can be quicker with his distribution, and especially when the team are behind he needs to get things going again with more urgency.

Came bravely for a couple of high balls in the second half and punched well despite being fouled.

Nathaniel Clyne – 6

Was unable to track the run of Ashley Barnes when Burnley opened the scoring early on.

Offered a good outlet down the right in attack and was regularly found with cross-field balls.

Not quite the performance Liverpool were looking for, but wasn’t the worst player on the pitch.

Joel Matip – 6

Probably didn’t expect to be under pressure from the start, but was.

The high line caused a number of problems early on and Matip was one of several players who couldn’t sort themselves out in the opening stages.

Clearances were mis-hit and headers were half won, but he did get used to what Burnley were serving up and became slightly more comfortable as the game went on.
