30′: Plenty of possession for Liverpool but not in a dangerous area. Another corner after they get the ball wide on the right but once again the corner doesn’t trouble Burnley.
28′: Burnley’s defending is top draw. Block a chance from Origi/Wijnaldum and then force Can to go long. Liverpool not having much joy, but should exploit the space behind Ben Mee.
