That's all for today, goodbye!
Liverpool's 24-game winning run at home comes to an end, but they're now unbeaten in 58 matches at Anfield and still chasing a record-breaking points tally in the Premier League this season. Next up for them is a trip to face Arsenal. Burnley move up to ninth in the table and are staying in the mix for a European place next season. They face Wolves next time out.
Burnley earn a 1-1 draw against the champions Liverpool. The home side took the lead in the first half when Robertson's brilliant header curled over Pope and into the back of the net. The goalkeeper kept Burnley in the game, making some wonderful saves from both Salah and Mane before the break. Burnley equalised through Rodriguez's goal in the second half and they had a chance to win it late on, but Gudmundsson's shot bounced off the crossbar.
90' + 3' GOOD CHANCE! Van Dijk plays a wonderful pass up to Alexander-Arnold on the right and he puts the cross into the box first time. He picks out Salah in the middle, but he scuffs the shot and Pope gets down well to hold onto it.
90' + 1' Mane drifts out wide on the left and pulls away from Bardsley to swing a cross into the box. Firmino made a run to the far post, but it's too close to Pope who is happy to collect it.
N. Pope
Yellow Card
89' Pope is booked for time-wasting. 
P. Bardsley
Yellow Card
88' Bardsley slides in very late on Salah as Liverpool start their counter-attack and picks up a yellow card for the challenge.
87' OFF THE BAR! Liverpool don't cope well with Burnley's corner and Westwood has a chance to swing a second cross into the box. Alisson punches it as far as Gudmundsson who fires his shot towards the target and it bounces off the top of the crossbar.
85' Oxlade-Chamberlain gets into some space on the right and cuts the ball back to Salah just outside the box. He takes a touch before curling his shot towards goal, but it's straight at Pope who holds onto it.
83' Klopp is asking why his side didn't get a penalty after Robertson was brought down just inside the box after a loose challenge from Gudmundsson. The referee doesn't see anything wrong with it though and the VAR check doesn't change the decision.
A. Oxlade-Chamberlain
G. Wijnaldum
81' The third change for Liverpool sees Oxlade-Chamberlain replace Wijnaldum.
J. Gomez
Yellow Card
80' Gomez picks up the first yellow card of the game for a late challenge on Vydra.
79' It's patient play from Liverpool who have all of their outfield players in Burnley's half. The away side are keeping their shape well though and making it difficult for Liverpool to find a way through.
77' Rodriguez has scored in consecutive Premier League games for the first time since April 2018.
75' Rodriguez holds up the ball well on the left before laying it off to McNeil so he can get into a better position in the box. It's a good cross into the middle from him but Van Dijk is well placed to clear it.
73' GOOD CHANCE! Alexander-Arnold finds himself in a pocket of space just outside the box and he drills a powerful shot towards goal. It's straight down the middle at Pope though and he punches it away.
71' Liverpool are keeping hold of the ball well at the moment as they try to quickly regain their lead in the game. Burnley have got all of their players sitting deep in their own half to close down the space ahead of the home side.
J. Rodriguez
69' BURNLEY ARE LEVEL! The free-kick is good by Burnley and nobody picks up Rodriguez as Tarkowski heads it to him. He takes a touch before firing his shot on target and Alisson is beaten as it nestles into the bottom-left corner. 1-1!
J. Tarkowski
69' Tarkowski rises above Gomez in the box to meet the initial free-kick and he heads it back to Rodriguez. VAR checked the goal to see if he was offside in the build-up, but Robertson was playing him on.
T. Alexander-Arnold
N. Williams
69' Alexander-Arnold also comes on for Williams.
N. Keïta
C. Jones
69' Klopp is making a double change now as well and Jones makes way for Keita.
67' Mane comes back from an offside position to get on the end of Gomez's header, but the flag goes up for offside against him, giving the players chance to go off for the drinks break.
M. Vydra
C. Wood
65' Wood is the other player to make way, with Vydra replacing him.
J. Guðmunds­son
E. Pieters
65' Double change for Burnley now and it's Pieters coming off first for Gudmundsson.
64' Liverpool are asking for a penalty after a sloppy challenge from Tarkowski on Salah in the box. The players get into a tangle as they both go for the ball but the referee doesn't think there's anything in it as he waves the claims away.
62' Burnley don't clear their lines from a corner and Liverpool have three chances to double their lead. Williams' drilled effort is blocked by Tarkowski before it falls to Wijnaldum and his shot is blocked by Taylor. It bounces through to Salah, but Long is in the right place to block this one as well.
60' Williams squares the ball to Fabinho and he hits the shot first time from outside the box. It takes a big deflection off Brownhill which leaves Pope scrambling across his line, but it rolls wide of the target.
58' CLOSE! Robertson squares it to Mane and he cuts back inside to get away from Tarkowski before drilling his low shot across goal. It's beaten Pope, but it fizzes just wide of the far post.
57' GOOD SAVE! It's a wonderful curling cross into the box from Westwood on the right and Rodriguez isn't picked up in the box as he dives onto it to head his effort towards goal. Alisson gets across his line quickly to push it away but the flag goes up for offside anyway.
55' Burnley have their first shot on target in the game as Rodriguez finds himself in a pocket of space on the edge of the box. He fires his shot on goal, but it's straight at Alisson who holds onto it.
53' McNeil nicks the ball off Gomez on the halfway line and has a chance to run into space down the left. Rodriguez is making a supporting run, but Williams makes a good challenge to nick it off him.
51' CLOSE! Another quick attack from Liverpool and this time it's Jones that's in on goal when Salah lays it off to him. It's a good hit by the midfielder, but he can't turn it on target as it flies wide of the post.
49' OFF THE POST! Pieters didn't keep up with Firmino's run down the left of the box and he's picked out by Salah. He hits the shot first time but drags it. Pope is beaten but the shot bounces off the outside of the far post.
47' McNeil is brought down by Williams on the left and Burnley have a free-kick in a good position. Westwood goes across to take it, but it's not the best cross from him as Gomez clears it at the near post.
46' Burnley get us back underway for the second half!
Klopp will be pleased with his side's performance so far and will expect more of the same from them in the second half as they look to continue their impressive winning record at Anfield. As for Dyche, he will be expecting a lot more from his players after the break as they haven't even managed a single shot on target so far.
Liverpool lead through Robertson's goal at the break. The home side dominated in the first half but it took them until the 34th minute to break the deadlock when Robertson scored a brilliant header that curled past Pope into the net. If it wasn't for the goalkeeper, Burnley could've been out of this game as he's made three great stops to deny Salah and Mane.
45' + 2' GREAT SAVE! Salah brings down Robertson's cross with a brilliant first touch and he lays it off to Mane. He turns away from Long before firing his shot towards the top-left corner but Pope gets a strong hand to it to tip it wide.
45' It's patient build-up from the home side again as they switch play from left to right to pick out Williams. He touches it onto Firmino on the right of the box and his shot takes a big deflection off McNeil.
43' Robertson is causing more problems for Burnley now as he drives past Pieters on the left and curls a low cross into the six-yard box. Firmino is running onto it at the near post but misses it and Tarkowski clears it behind him.
42' Robertson is the 14th Liverpool player to score at Anfield in the Premier League this season. Only in 1992-93 have they had more different home scorers (15).
40' Westwood swings a corner into the box but it's right on top of Alisson, who punches it away. Brownhill follows up and brings the ball down on the edge of the area, but Salah makes a good interception.
38' Williams gets himself into a good position as he drifts into the box from the right and Mane picks out his run. The right-back keeps his shot low, but it's blocked by Long.
36' Burnley are under pressure again as Liverpool counter-attack from a corner. There's not as much pace as they move upfield this time and Mane can't pick out Jones' run from the right as Tarkowski makes another block.
A. Robertson
34' LIVERPOOL LEAD! It's a brilliant goal from Robertson as he drifts away from his defender at the far post. He guides his header over Pope's outstretched hand and it curls into the back of the net. 1-0 Liverpool!
34' It was a lovely cross into the box from Fabinho following a corner as he picks out Robertson's run at the far post.
33' GOOD SAVE! Brownhill blocks Mane's cross but then gives the ball away to Salah inside his own box. The forward turns with it before drilling his low shot towards goal and Pope comes off his line to make the save with his feet.
31' Burnley do well to win the ball back in midfield, but Rodriguez is on his own as he makes a run down the right. He tries to hold it up and wait for support to come, but Robertson nicks it from him.
29' Victory here today will see Liverpool equal the record for the most home wins in a single Premier League campaign (18).
27' Burnley are crowding around Alisson in the box as McNeil swings the cross into the box and the keeper can't get a touch onto it. Wood is waiting for it at the far post, but Van Dijk heads it out for a corner.
25' McNeil does really well to wrongfoot Jones on the left and makes a driving run into the final third. He's got support up with him, but it's a wild cross into the box from him that swings straight out of play.
23' Taylor makes another good run down the left wing and swings a good cross into the box. Rodriguez has made a run to the near post, but a block off Williams takes it looping onto the roof of the net.
21' CLOSE! Jones isn't picked up in the middle of the box and Mane picks out the midfielder. He takes a touch before firing his shot towards goal and Bardsley gets an important touch on it that takes it just wide of the post.
20' Burnley are struggling to get hold of the ball at the moment as Liverpool start to pile even more pressure on them. Tarkowski goes long with his clearance, but the offside flag goes up against Wood.
18' GREAT SAVE! Long doesn't clear his lines with the initial header and Salah plays a one-two with Firmino before he gets the shot away. He hits the shot on the volley and Pope, who is moving back towards his line, dives to push it wide of the post.
16' It's patient build-up by Liverpool as they work it out to the left and Wijnaldum cuts the ball back to Jones in the middle of the box. He keeps his shot low but it's straight at Pope who holds onto it.
14' Salah was brought down just outside the box by Rodriguez and he's standing over the resulting free-kick. He curls it up and over Burnley's wall, but there's not enough dip on the shot and it sails over the bar.
13' Mane does brilliantly as he drifts pass Pieters on the edge of the box and cuts inside to try and get into a shooting position. He dummies a shot before Firmino takes it off him and has a go, but it's another good block from Tarkowski.
11' GOOD CHANCE! Robertson pulls away from Bardsley on the left again and swings yet another great cross into the box. Salah is running onto it in the middle but Tarkowski gets there just ahead of him to block it.
10' Jones gives the ball to Pieters in midfield and he turns before chipping a pass into the box for Rodriguez to run on to. The forward can't get on the end of it though and Alisson comes to collect it. 
8' Liverpool are on the attack again now and Robertson swings another good cross in from the left. None of his team-mates have made a run to the near post though and Long clears his lines.
6' Mane plays a good throughball into Robertson and he drills a low cross into a dangerous position in the six-yard box. Tarkowski reads it well though and makes an interception to put it out for a corner.
4' Taylor gets past Wijnaldum down the left for Burnley and swings a good cross into Rodriguez. He tries to square it to Wood who is in a better position on the edge of the area, but he overhits it and Alisson comes to collect.
2' Liverpool are seeing a lot of the ball early on here and Wijnaldum makes a driving run through the middle from his own half. He tries to lay it off to Salah on the edge of the box, but Brownhill gets an important touch to get it back to Pope.
1' Salah gets the game underway for Liverpool!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.
