Leeds 2-2 Everton (Raphinha)

He's a wonderful, wonderful player. 

Cutting in, he hits it from long range into the back of the net - what a game!

Man City 4-0 Norwich (Sterling)

Gabriel Jesus deserves all the plaudits today.

He stays out on the right wing as Raheem Sterling comes on, and then sets him up instantly for the fourth.

Game over in Manchester.

Norwich fail to clear a corner and Laporte pokes home.

Aston Villa 2-0 Newcastle (El Ghazi)

After a VAR check for handball, Villa are awarded a penalty and their reliable spot-kick taker Anwar El Ghazi steps up to fire it home. 

That should be the points.

4 weeks ago
Leeds 1-2 Everton (Gray)

Rafa's boys are back in front!

Summer signing Demarai Gray has shown exactly why the Spanish boss brought him in with a brilliant low shot that finds the corner.

The Leeds midfielder brings his side level just before the break!

Man City 2-0 Norwich (Grealish)

The £100m man has started to pay back some of that fee as he bags City's second of the afternoon.

The ball just hits him and goes in!

Man City 1-0 Norwich (Hanley OG)

Six minutes on the clock as Grant Hanley turns into his own net to give Man City the lead.

Grealish and Bernardo start for Man City

Pep Guardiola has made some interesting changes for their 3pm home match v Norwich.

4 weeks ago
Liverpool 2-0 Burnley!

That's a lovely Liverpool second that surely puts this game out of reach.

Trent Alexander-Arnold gets the final pass after a lovely move that sends Sadio Mane through, who finishes with power and conviction.

That should be three points in the bag! 

4 weeks ago
Burnley goal disallowed!

The game gets underway and within a minute Ashley Barnes has the ball in the net, but the linesman has his flag up!

Positive intent.

HALF TIME: Liverpool 1-0 Burnley

The teams go into the break with Liverpool leading 1-0 thanks to Diogo Jota's goal. 

And they are on course for a win, looking at this statistic.

4 weeks ago
VAR rules out Salah goal

Mo Salah looked like he has got his 99th Premier League goal, but he had just strayed offside and VAR rules it out. 

No toenails needed here, the Egyptian was about a yard off. 

4 weeks ago
Liverpool 1-0 Burnley!

After all that positivity for the visitors, Diogo Jota makes them pay! 

Tsimikas whips in a delightful ball and the Portuguese man gets in front of his marker and heads the ball past Nick Pope. That is two in two for Jota and Liverpool lead!

Bright start from Burnley

Burnley have already been told off for time-wasting, but they are causing Liverpool problems as Guðmundsson goes down after a shoulder barge. Nothing given by the on-field referee Mike Dean and as we have seen so far this season, VAR isn't getting involved. 

Liverpool are yet to get into their flow.

Kick off!

The game gets underway, with the Liverpool fans enjoying the atmosphere a full Anfield is producing.

Burnley go back to basics

A little stat for you as the Kop welcomes the two teams to the pitch, Sean Dyche has named a starting line-up that is wearing the numbers 1-11.

This is the first time it has been done in the Premier League since Charlton did it in the 1998-99 season!

Wood and Barnes up top for Burnley

For the visitors, who won at Anfield last season, Ashley Barnes starts with Chris Wood up front as Matej Vydra misses out. 

Ashley Westwood also misses out in midfield as Josh Brownhill moves into central midfield.

No Firmino for Liverpool

Roberto Firmino is once again on the bench for the Reds as Diogo Jota starts up front, with Sadio Mane and Mo Salah, who could bag his 100th Premier League goal today.

There is also starts for Harvey Elliot and Joel Matip, while James Milner misses out through injury.
