Liverpool 1 Burnley 1

Brilliant Burnley did what no other Premier League side has managed this season as they stopped the champions in their tracks.

 No other team had taken a point at Anfield this season in a triumphant march to the title by the all-conquering Merseysiders.

 But the Clarets are no ordinary outfit at the moment and Jay Rodriguez’s fantastic second-half equaliser denied Liverpool their perfect record and inched Sean Dyche’s men a priceless point closer to possible European football.

 Rodriguez’s 11th goal of the season extended Burnley’s own unbeaten run to five games as they produced an inspired second-half performance to hit back from a goal down following first-half heroics from goalkeeper Nick Pope.

 And only the width of the crossbar denied substitute Johann Berg Gudmundsson a dramatic late winner as the Clarets – beaten just once in 13 top-flight games – ripped up the script and kept their own fairytale story alive with three games left to try and grab a Euro slot.

 The Clarets made one change to their starting line-up as they looked to re-write some daunting Anfield history and prevent the Reds adding to their own.
