Liverpool and Burnley are drawing 1-1 at Anfield. Liverpool did not start to look like their normal selves at the start of the first half. Burnley looked dangerous at times at the start of the game, and it took time for the Reds to begin creating chances in the game.

Burnley were in Liverpool's half for most of the first 7 minutes of the game. Burnley was close to scoring in the 9th minute when Amdouni passed a great ball to Fofana. Fofana tries to cross the ball in the box but instead changes his mind and tries to chip over Kelleher. The ball goes on top of the net, and the flag goes up for offside.

A minute later, Burnley gets another chance after a flick from Fofana going towards Amdouni, who was preparing a shot. Kelleher blocks the attempt to make a save. Trent Alexander Arnold tries a shot outside the box with a first-time shot, but it goes over the bar. Liverpool started to get into the groove to attack Burnley at home.

Diogo Jota and O'Shea scores headers from corners to make the game 1-1

In the 31st minute, from a corner kick, Jota wins a header over Trafford to score the opener for Liverpool. It was an unfortunate goal to concede for Burnley because it was a mistake from a Burnley defender. Trafford was set to grab the ball, but Dara O'Shea blocked his path to the ball. The ball fell perfectly to Jota's head after a great pass by Trent through the corner kick.

Dara O'Shea makes up for his mistake in the Liverpool goal and scores the equalizer for Burnley late in the first half. Like the Liverpool goal, O'Shea wins a header in the box from a corner kick. He sends the ball in the top right corner past Kelleher. O’Shea has scored his first-ever Premier League goal.
