Latest Football News – Four games and four wins for Liverpool. Saturday afternoon, the Reds won in Burnley 3-0. A wide victory and a first clean sheet of the season for the men of Jurgen Klopp, who lead in the Championship of England.
Liverpool does the job. Without being flamboyant in the game, the Reds win largely on the Burnley field (0-3) and continue their good series with four wins in as many games, taking at the same time the head of the Premier League, with two points ahead on … Manchester City! But, above all, the men of Jurgen Klopp make this Saturday afternoon their first clean sheet of the season, all competitions.
Zero goal conceded but two in advance at the break. Because the Reds pressed the accelerator in the first period. Thanks to Alexander-Arnold, whose center-shot slightly deflected by Wood ended up in the right-sided opponent’s corner (0-1, 33), and thanks to a hard-to-finish Sadio Mané, who scored a cross-shot that would not leave no chance to Nick Pope, minutes later (0-2, 37th).
Firmino, number 50
If the second period was not crazy in terms of pace of play, it did not prevent Roberto Firmino to score his 50th goal in the Premier League, through a superb strike at the entrance to the surface of repair, becoming the first Brazilian in history to achieve this performance.

But the most important lesson to be learned from this meeting on Liverpool side is mainly the fact of not conceding a single goal for 90 minutes, a performance that had not yet been achieved this season. A reassuring news for the best defense of the Premier League last season (22 goals conceded). An important victory for Liverpool, who is already leading the championship in front of his rival last season, namely Manchester City. The beginning of a mano to mano until the 38th day?
