Burnley have made a poor start to the new Premier League season after they made it two defeats from two games at Liverpool in the early kick-off on Saturday. The current struggle from the Clarets is similar to what was obtainable last season but they were able to recover well to seal their Premier League status at the end of last season. Burnley finished the season in a safe place having secured the safety with a few games left to play.
The loss at home to the Seagulls preceded the Liverpool game which ended in a 2-0 defeat. New Zealand national team star Wooddidn’t find the back of the net in both games. As a matter of fact, the New Zealand striker hardly had any chance against a well marshalled Liverpool defence before being subbed off for Jay Rodriguez in the final quarter of the Premier League clash.
Liverpool have showed their title credentials this season with two straight victories. The Reds beat Burnley 2-0 with goals from Portuguese international Diogo Jota and Senegalese player Sadio Mane in each half to make it two wins from two games. The Merseyside giants had beaten Norwich City in their first game this season. Jota was on target in a 3-0 away win alongside both Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
