Burnley 0-1 Liverpool

Liverpool extended their winning streak to six games in a row in all competitions with a 1-0 victory against Burnley, courtesy to Fabinho’s goal late in the first half.

With Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both returning to the starting lineup after their Africa Cup of Nations exploits, it was the Brazilian midfielder who made the difference, pushing home from close range.

 

 

Burnley had many opportunities in a surprisingly equal encounter, but they all went missing, with Wout and James Rodriguez wasteful after breaking through on goal.

Fabinho was in the correct spot to tuck in his fifth goal in seven games after Trent Alexander-corner Arnold’s throw was headed on by Mane.

Defensively, the visitors tightened up, but offensively, they didn’t have much to give.

When given a second opportunity to seal the victory, replacement Diogo Jota could only slice wide from a terrific position.

Weghorst’s injury pulled him off the field, further complicating Burnley’s case. Liverpool was able to defend far more easily without their target man, and Jurgen Klopp’s side had no issue hanging on for maximum points.

With the win, Liverpool has moved to 54 points, nine points behind champions Man City, and they still have a game in hand on their title rivals.

 

 

Burnley, meanwhile, remains in the relegation zone, with the Clarets currently seven points away from safety due to Newcastle’s victory over Aston Villa.

Tottenham 0-2 Wolves

Wolves made it three Premier League defeats in a row for Tottenham with a 2-0 triumph against Antonio Conte’s sloppy side.

 

 

In a game in which Tottenham supporters disregarded the club’s request by continuing to scream the Y-word, their team went down on six minutes when a calamitous run of goalkeeping from Hugo Lloris enabled Raul Jimenez to volley spectacularly. Spurs were entirely to blame for their demise and could not have been more gracious in assisting Wolves to a two-goal lead.

 

 

When Ben Davies’ weak ball out launched a Wolves attack, and Daniel Podence’s attempt rebounded back off the post, Leandro Dendoncker was on there to double the advantage.
