Liverpool player ratings vs Burnley: Darwin Nunez does the business before deadly Diogo Jota makes triumphant return after another frustrating night in front of goal

Liverpool moved back to the top of the Premier League table for at least the next 48 hours after they secured a 2-0 win at Burnley that was far closer than it should have been given how much the Reds dominated their hosts.

Darwin Nunez proved to be the match-winner as he curled in a superb strike from 20 yards inside the first 10 minutes to end a 12-match drought. From there, Jurgen Klopp's side attacked relentlessly, but struggled to find a second goal to give them comfort.

Burnley goalkeeper James Trafford made a string of excellent saves while Mohamed Salah struck the bar and both Cody Gakpo and Harvey Elliott had goals disallowed either side of half-time. At the other end, Burnley had spells of pressure, but never really tested Alisson Becker before the returning Diogo Jota stepped off the bench to seal the points with a goal from a tight angle.
