Burnley Players Rated In Their Last Minute Defeat Vs Liverpool: Clarets Duo Get 9/10!

Burnley were left completely shattered as they conceded a last-minute equalizer against Liverpool to continue their extend their winless streak of four to five games.

The Clarets started the game in a very disciplined manner but a second-half opener from Sadio Mane completely changed the complexion of the game. However, the home side kept fighting on and eventually scored in the final few minutes through Berg Gudmundsson.

Liverpool, however, had other plans as their defensive duo in Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan combined to score the last minute winner to seal all three points for the Reds.

Here are the best and the worst rated Burnley players in their disappointing defeat against Liverpool

Nick Pope (7.5/10):

Made a couple of stunning saves in the second half to keep his side in the contest. However, the Burnley keeper couldn’t do much to stop Sadio Mane’s stunning effort for the opener.

Phil Bardsley (8/10):

Had a relatively good game on the right flank, where he was involved in virtually everything. His tremendous work rate and fighting spirit helped Burnley keep their shape and momentum throughout the game.

James Tarkowski (7.5/10):

Looked troubled at times, defensively but the former Brentford man did well to keep up with the likes of Dominic Solanke and Sadio Mane.

Ben Mee (8/10):

Complemented the industrious defensive work from his defensive partner James Tarkowski really well as the 28-year-old cleared a lot of dangerous long balls as well as making a few crucial interceptions.

Charlie Taylor (7.5/10):

Looked quite dangerous in the attack, at times but had his fair share of troubles dealing with the marauding runs of Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander Arnold on the left flank.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson (9/10):

A stunning performance from the Iceland international who had been a real menace for the Liverpool defence throughout the game. His determination and fighting spirit helped him prevail at the death, where he scored the all-important equalizer.

Jack Cork (7/10):

Perhaps not the best of outings for the former Swansea midfielder, who was largely outdone by the midfield pressure from the opposition.

Steven Defour (7.5/10):

Tried to influence stamp his mark on proceedings through some pinpoint passing and clever movement in the middle third.

Scott Arfield (8/10):

His directness and willingness to score proved beneficiary to his side in the attacking third. The former Huddersfield man took three shots, all of which caused some troubles for the opposing defence.

Jeff Hendrick (6.5/10):

Completely failed to make an impact on the final third, largely due to his lack of dynamism and cleverness. The 25-year-old was rightfully subbed off in the second half.

Ashley Barnes (9/10):

Showed terrific industry to make himself a complete menace for the Liverpool defence throughout the ninety minutes. His physicality was cleverly used to exploit the porous defence of Jurgen Klopp’s side by the Burnley manager and it is probably fair to say that he succeeded doing so for the most part.

Substitutes

Sam Vokes (8/10):

His introduction in the second half was a boon for the Burnley faithful. Not only did he provide more attacking options inside the box but his impressive aerial abilities also helped him gather the assist for the Gudmundsson equalizer later in the game.

Nahki Wells (NA):

Replaced Gudmundsson in the final few minutes to provide more attacking options in the final third.
