Liverpool Make History With Win Over Burnley

Premier League leaders Liverpool have set a new record after their win over Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday evening.

The Reds thrashed Burnley 3-0 to usurp Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

Manchester City had earlier gone to the top of the table following the 4-0 win at home to Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Premier League champions got their goals through Sergio Aguero (2), Kevin De Bruyne and second half substitute Bernardo Silva.

Liverpool reacted to the Manchester City result with a dominant win at the home of Burnley.

The Reds took the lead just after the half hour mark through Burnley striker Chris Woods who put through his own net off a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross.

Liverpool added a second goal almost immediately (four minutes later) through Sadio Mane before Roberto Firmino wrapped up the win in the second half to send his team back to the Premier League summit.

With the result, Liverpool broke their record of successive victories in the league.

They have won their last 13 league games thereby beating the record set in 1990 (12 straight wins).

The last league game that didn’t end in victory for Liverpool was the Merseyside Derby on the 3rd of March.
