Jur Kidding Burnley score from CORNER but Reds furious as replay shows Alisson being held

JURGEN KLOPP was left fuming after Burnley took the lead against Liverpool in this afternoon’s crunch Premier League clash.
And Reds’ goalkeeper Alisson was equally unhappy after Ashley Westwood netted directly from a corner in the swirling winds at Anfield.
The Brazilian claimed to have been impeded by Burnley’s strikers as the ball swung in from his right and looped over his head into the Liverpool net.
TV replays showed that he might have had a point – but he and manager Klopp were forced to swallow their frustration as Andre Marriner let the goal stand.
Worse was to follow for Alisson , as Marriner booked him for complaining excessively about the decision.
The goal came in the 6 th minute of the match after Joel Matip had conceded the corner by nodding a loose ball behind under little pressure.
As players jostled for position in the Liverpool penalty area, Westwood sent an inswinging effort which seemed to be carried by the wind.
It very much looked as if two Burnley players impeded the Liverpool keeper as he made an attempt to meet the ball, which sailed straight into his net.
Klopp spoke angrily to the fourth official on the touchline as the game continued.
He’ll have been much happier with what followed, as Roberto Firmino ended his mini-drought by scoring after a one-two with Mo Salah on nineteen minutes.
And Liverpool went on to take the lead ten minutes later with a brilliant curled effort from Sadio Mane .
The Reds dominated the rest of the half, with Salah going close to making it 3-1 as players tried to come to terms with the poor weather conditions.
