Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

That's it from me, so much for my intro back at 14:30, hey? Burnley have their first win of the season and Liverpool their first defeat.

Head here for a developing match report, or here for the reaction from Turf Moor and the other Saturday games.

FULL-TIME

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Liverpool had 25 shots, Burnley had three. But the Clarets take the points and were a lot more comfortable than the statistics might suggest.

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Andre Gray is cheered to the rafters as he trots off, to be replaced by teenage Australian Aiden O'Neill, who comes on for his senior debut to help to see this one out.

INJURY TIME

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Burnley have three minutes of stoppage time to survive before they clinch their first win of the season.

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

No, it is just not happening for Jurgen Klopp's men today. Burnley's superb organisation at the back leaves Liverpool frustrated and they end up firing wide from outside the box yet again, through Nathaniel Clyne.

Marko Grujic fires over the Burnley bar. He must have been 30 yards out - I would say Liverpool are getting desperate but they have been doing that all game.

David Dunphy: Liverpool need someone with pace and raw power. Someone like, say, Christian Benteke.

Liverpool are camped in the Burnley half. The Clarets have 10 players behind the ball.

SUBSTITUTION

Another change for Burnley. Sam Vokes is off. Lukas Jutkiewicz is on, probably with instructions to run around a lot and defend from the front.

What we saw at Arsenal was a Liverpool team playing in the Klopp way, high intensity, but today we have to give a lot of credit to Burnley.

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Almost an instant impact from Marko Grujic. His shot from the edge of the box brings a reflex save from Tom Heaton. Burnley are defending deep and in numbers, can they keep this up?

Attack is the best form of defence

Almost every other manager in the league would take one of the two strikers off to help the midfield out but not Dyche. He's basically saying we might sneak another goal here.

SUBSTITUTION

Liverpool 2-0 Burnley

Yes, here comes Alberto Moreno... and Marko Grujic. They replace James Milner and Adam Lallana and have 13 minutes to rescue something from this game.

Alberto Moreno is coming on for Liverpool. No, I'm not making that up.

'Origi is a targetman'

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Pat Nevin

Ex-Chelsea winger on BBC Radio 5 live

Liverpool need someone they can aim at in the middle and they haven't had anyone with any height or physique so far. With Origi they have that and although it's a surprise to take Sturridge off he is not fully fit yet,

Daniel Sturridge
PA

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

The overall shot count is 20-3 in Liverpool's favour and the Reds have had 85% of possession in this second half, but there is not enough urgency from the visitors and most of their efforts at goal have been a) from distance and b) off target... step forward Philippe Coutinho as the main offender there.

Alistair Lowe:  Mane's pace already looks indispensable. LFC have crabbed across the pitch for 70 minutes and Heaton's only save is from Clyne!  

Burnley will be delighted

It's been same-old from Liverpool this game and Burnley will be delighted about that. They've got themselves organised and covered in terms of the attacking spaces. It's just too predictable.

Philippe Coutinho lets fly from the edge of the Burnley box again. Do you need me to tell you what happened?

(His shot soared a long way over, again).

Possession not winning any prizes for Liverpool

For the away team here to be 2-0 down given the possession they've had it's just incredible.

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Time for a Liverpool change - Divock Origi is on for Daniel Sturridge.

Signs the Reds are getting frustrated as Jordan Henderson takes out Johann Berg Gudmundsson as he shields the ball.

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Liverpool's possession is above 79% now, but still no way through. Burnley have only had 12 touches in the Reds' half since the break but they will not care while the scoreline stays the same.

PA

A penny for your thoughts, Jurgen?

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Liverpool have not failed to score in a Premier League game since 2 February but are short of inspiration in front of goal today.

What will Jurgen Klopp do about it?

Jurgen Klopp
PA

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Liverpool are still attacking and Philippe Coutinho is still shooting from distance but it is still not happening for either. Just over half an hour left for them to find a way back into this game.

SUBSTITUTION

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Steven Defour's Burnley debut is over... he is being replaced by Johann Berg Gudmundsson. The £8m Belgian set up his side's second goal so I think he can be happy with his work today.

Steven Defour
PA

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

A bit of controversy here, almost, when James Milner fails to keep the ball in play with a desperate slide near the left touchline but the officials let the game continue. The home crowd whistle their disapproval but Liverpool's luck does not last because Daniel Sturridge scoops his shot over when the ball is sent into the Burnley area.

'Wind is a factor'

There is such a swirling wind and you don't know what is going to happen. It nearly catches Klaven out and Gray is looking incredibly sharp. He's having a great game.

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

This is more like it by Liverpool. This time, Roberto Firmino lets fly, and brings the save of the game from Tom Heaton. That was heading for the top corner.

The Reds have to be careful, mind. Just before that Firmino effort, Ragnar Klavan switched off and Andre Gray almost got in on goal.

'Need to change it quickly'

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Pat Nevin

Ex-Chelsea winger on BBC Radio 5 live

Liverpool need to change it fairly quickly because they are 2-0 down and they haven't created enough chances. By the look of it Burnley have a level of comfort at the start of the second half.

Lallana and Arfield
PA

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

As discussed, Philippe Coutinho had a bit of a stinker before the break. Has he improved? Yes, sort of... his latest shot from outside the area was on target for once today but was straight at Burnley keeper Tom Heaton.

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

A bit of a delay after Andre Gray is hurt in a collision with Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren, but no treatment is needed. We are back under way, and the Reds have the ball again. In their own half at the moment.

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

This is familiar. Liverpool start the second half on the attack, and start by firing wide. Daniel Sturridge is the culprit this time, skewing his shot off target after finding a good position in the box.

KICK-OFF

No changes from either side at the break. Burnley get the second half under way.

Two shots, two goals for Burnley

Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

heatmap from Turf Moor
BBC Sport

The respective heat maps of the two teams tells you what the pattern of play was like in that first half. Liverpool (on the right) saw 78% of the ball and had 13 shots, but only two were on target and neither tested Tom Heaton.

Burnley, on the left, hardly got out of their half and only had two shots in total... but scored with both of them.
