Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Burnley result v Southampton

By Harvey Byrne

Southampton convincingly beat Burnley 3-1 on Sunday afternoon – and Liverpool fans took to Twitter wondering how their side lost to the Lancashire outfit.

The Saints won the clash at St Marys with a double from Charlie Austin and Nathan Redmond strike leaving Sam Vokes’ penalty as nothing but a consolation.

However, Liverpool did not have similar fortunes in the clash against Sean Dyche’s team and they lost 2-0 in a shock defeat at Turf Moor.

The result on the south coast left many fans of the Reds on social media wondering how their own team suffered a two goal defeat against the then newly promoted outfit.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Burnley have only won one other match this season with a 2-0 victory at home against Watford.

However, Liverpool were left aggrieved that they couldn’t take all three points against the Clarets with 80% of the match possession and 26 shots in total.

Although the Reds have not been too affected by the shock defeat and they currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League table with 16 points from their first seven fixtures, three points behind league leaders Manchester City with a game in hand.

They face fierce rivals Manchester United on Monday, which will be sure to be a thrilling encounter at Anfield.

In other Liverpool news, Xabi Alonso has described the Reds’ upcoming match against Manchester United on Monday as a game that is “going to be a good one to watch”.
