That is all for today's live text coverage. Thanks for joining, goodbye!
Liverpool remain fourth and six points adrift of leaders Manchester United, who they face in the FA Cup fourth round in their next outing on Sunday. As for Burnley, who move up to 16th with this victory, they travel to Fulham in the domestic cup in three days' time.
What a huge upset at Anfield! Burnley see out the remaining seconds to pick up the rarest of away victories over Liverpool, in the process ending the reigning champions' 68-game unbeaten run at Anfield in the Premier League. Barnes won and converted a penalty in the final 10 minutes and the Reds, blunt all evening in front of goal, could not respond.
90' + 4' Yet another Alexander-Arnold cross from the right is dealt with. Liverpool have about 30 seconds to end their scoring drought and keep their long-running unbeaten home league streak alive.
90' + 3' Liverpool have conceded two penalty goals at Anfield in this season's Premier League (also Sander Berge for Sheffield United). They had only conceded two penalty goals at the ground under Jurgen Klopp before 2020-21.
90' + 2' Alisson comes up for the corner and nearly gets on the end of it. Burnley deal with the second delivery into the box and Minamino's shot from 15 yards is blocked.
90' + 1' The first of the four added minutes have been played. Liverpool are throwing everything at Burnley and will be desperate for just one more chance.
90' McNeil fires inches wide after being played in by Barnes. Four minutes have been added on at Anfield.
89' INCREDIBLE! Mane does well down the left to get away from his man. He sends a cross into the middle but it is missed by a couple of his team-mates. Alexander-Arnold scuffs a shot goalwards and Firmino diverts it on target, but Mee is positioned near enough on the line to make the block.
88' It is three months short of four years since Liverpool last lost a home Premier League match. They have two minutes, plus four or five to be added on, to find an equaliser at the very least.
J. Matip
Yellow Card
87' Matip handles the ball to halt a Burnley attack and is shown a yellow card by referee Mike Dean.
86' Liverpool just look incredibly flat. They are bossing possession, particularly in the final third, but there is just no way through on goal.
T. Minamino
X. Shaqiri
84' Klopp wanted to bring Minamino on before that Burnley penalty. He sticks with the decision, the Japan international replacing Shaqiri up top.
A. Barnes
Penalty Goal
83' GOOOOAAALLL!!! LIVERPOOL 0-1 BURNLEY!! Barnes calmly picks out the bottom-right corner and Liverpool's long-running unbeaten run at home in the league is at risk of coming to an end.
82' PENALTY TO BURNLEY! Now then!! Barnes gets away from Fabinho and is through on goal. Alisson tries to push the ball away from the Burnley striker's path but catches his opponent.
81' Klopp's men are running out of ideas, it seems. They have tried crossing the ball, shooting from range, threading it through - nothing is working. Burnley are on the verge of a valuable point.
80' Alexander-Arnold swings the free-kick into the six-yard box and Pope charges off his line to punch well clear.
79' Pieters blocks the run of Salah and Liverpool have a free-kick just outside the box in a good crossing position...
78' The shots have dried up for Liverpool all of a sudden. They are desperately trying to get the ball into the feet of Mane, Salah or Firmino inside the box but it is not dropping to them.
77' Liverpool have around 15 minutes to find a goal here - their title hopes could well depend on it. Burnley are doing just about enough to keep the champions at arm's length at the moment.
75' It is bodies on the line time for Burnley. Every time the ball drops inside the box a visiting player is on top of it in an instant. Liverpool want a penalty for handball against Pieters but it appeared to hit his side.
74' MISS! Burnley try to play out from the back but are caught out. Liverpool work the ball forward and it is nicely laid off for Firmino to strike 12 yards out, but the Brazil forward scuffs it well wide.
72' CHANCE! Liverpool are horribly exposed down their right. McNeil sends a cross in towards the front post and Gudmundsson gets to it first, but he cannot turn the ball on target.
71' Liverpool have had 76 per cent of the ball in the second half and got away a couple of shots on target. Burnley are continuing to remain firm at the back as we enter the final 20 minutes.
69' Barnes may have been offside for that chance a couple of minutes ago, though it goes to show just how vulnerable Liverpool are here. Not only are the Reds struggling to unlock Burnley, they are also at risk of conceding themselves at the other end.
67' Out of pretty much nowhere, Barnes chests down a long ball and volleys towards the bottom-left corner. Alisson produces the save of the match to keep it out, but the offside flag went up seconds later anyway.
J. Guðmunds­son
R. Brady
65' Gudmunds­son is on for Brady in the second of Burnley's changes. Dyche is looking to freshen things up in midfield.
64' Alexander-Arnold wins back the ball for Liverpool and sets Salah on his way. He tees up Mane on the penalty spot but Lowton does enough to put off the Senegal forward.
63' Burnley's last four Premier League games have all ended 1-0, though they have won just one of those. Those three defeats mean that losing 1-0 is now Burnley's most common scoreline in Premier League history (28 games).
61' WHAT A SAVE! Wijnaldum runs through the middle and plays in Salah. The substitute forward's shot is heading for the bottom-right corner, only for Pope to produce a superb stop.
60' Burnley are inviting a little too much pressure onto themselves now, though in fairness to them they are dealing with every ball that comes into the box. This is proving to be another frustrating evening for Liverpool.
58' Lowton calmly heads the ball back to Pope to collect, ending Liverpool's latest attacking move.
Mohamed Salah
D. Origi
57' Origi, who missed the biggest chance of the match so far, is replaced by Salah.
Roberto Firmino
A. Oxlade-Chamberlain
57' Firmino is on for Oxlade-Chamberlain in the first of Liverpool's changes.
57' McNeil gets away from Alexander-Arnold with ease but is unable to pick out a team-mate with his cutback.
56' Liverpool pair Salah and Firmino are stripping down and are about to be introduced.
55' Brady stands over the free-kick, which is too far out to shoot. He floats it towards nobody in particular and it goes straight out of play for a goal-kick.
54' Barnes is left one-on-one with Fabinho. The Burnley striker hopes for some support and in the end he does well to buy a free-kick off Thiago.
53' Robertson's cross from the left is as simple as you like for Pope to deal with. Burnley will take another 40 minutes of this.
52' That is the first serious save Pope has had to make today. Alexander-Arnold's shot came through a sea of bodies but the Burnley keeper watched it all the way.
51' GOOD SAVE! Mane spreads the ball to Alexander-Arnold. His initial cross is dealt with but he elects to go for goal from the follow-up, forcing a good stop out of Pope down low.
E. Pieters
C. Taylor
50' Pieters is on for the injured Taylor in a like-for-like change at the back.
49' Taylor, who is making his return from injury today, stays down after clearing the ball. The Burnley physio is on the pitch.
48' The hosts start the second half with some purpose but Alexander-Arnold's cross it too close to Pope. Salah has been sent to warm up - the Egypt international may well be introduced shortly.
46' RESTART! Liverpool get us back up and running at Anfield. The Reds will be five points adrift of leaders Manchester United if the game ends this way.
That Origi chance came about as a result of some terrible play from Mee, with Liverpool once again struggling to create much of anything from open play. Pope has had four saves to make but none of those have been out of the ordinary. Indeed, Alisson has had three saves to make up the other end in a game of few talking points thus far.
The sides go into half-time all square at Anfield. Liverpool had 13 attempts in the first half - their most without scoring before half-time in a league game since December 2017 - with Origi wasting the best of their opportunities when racing through but thumping the crossbar.
Yellow Card
45' + 2' There was an incident involving Barnes and Fabinho as the referee blew his whistle for half-time. VAR checks to see what exactly happened and a yellow card is shown to Fabinho, seemingly for barging into his opponent with excess force.
45' + 1' Liverpool have a free-kick 20 yards from goal. It is laid off to Alexander-Arnold and he shanks it high into the stands.
45' Had Salah been on the pitch, or indeed Firmino, it would surely be 1-0 now. That was a huge opportunity for fringe striker Origi.
44' OFF THE BAR! What a chance this is for Origi! Mee makes a mess of an attempted backpass to Pope and Origi is clean through on goal. He has an eternity to pick his spot but opts for power and thumps the frame of the goal.
42' Shaqiri is slipped in down the right and digs a cross towards the back post, where Mane is waiting to nod down. However, the Liverpool forward is flagged for offside.
40' Alexander-Arnold's first touch is a smart one, bringing him inside Taylor, but his attempted curler is blocked in front of goal.
A. Barnes
Yellow Card
39' Burnley striker Barnes is the first player to be cautioned today following a strong challenge from behind on Thiago in the build-up to Shaqiri's shot.
39' SAVE! Barnes goes through the back of Thiago but the Liverpool attack continues and culminates in Shaqiri's powerful angled drive being parried by Pope.
38' Thirty-eight per cent of Liverpool's attacks so far have come down the right-hand side. Alexander-Arnold cuts in from that flank and sends a pretty poor attempt flying over the target from a long way out.
37' It has not been a classic so far at Anfield, it is fair to say. Burnley have set up well and are making it very difficult for Liverpool to find a way through.
35' Alexander-Arnold clips the ball towards the six-yard box but Pope watches it sail out of play for a goal-kick. Up the other end, Brady's volleyed rebound is straight at Alisson.
34' ANOTHER ATTEMPT! Mane slips in Origi to his left. The Belgium international delays the shot but does eventually get a half-decent attempt on target, which Pope is again equal to.
33' Six of Liverpool's 10 outfield players have now had a shot, two of them - Oxlade-Chamberlain and Origi - finding the target. Burnley have a chance to counter but Brady's attempted throughball is dealt with.
31' A little over half an hour has been played at Anfield and Liverpool are still awaiting that elusive goal. Klopp's men have created next to nothing so far, with Shaqiri's shot from range the closest they have come to making a breakthrough.
30' SAVE! Origi carries the ball forward and tries to pick out the bottom-right corner from the edge of the box, but it is a fairly routine stop for Pope down low.
28' Robertson's left-sided delivery causes some panic for Pope, but a free-kick is awarded to Burnley for shoving inside the box.
27' Burnley are not just sitting back on a point here. McNeil gets away from Alexander-Arnold and sends a low cross into the six-yard box, where Fabinho is waiting to cut it out.
25' Liverpool are starting to turn the screw, though they are still resorting to shots from range. A good delivery from the right is well dealt with by Mee in the six-yard box.
24' SHOT! Mane thinks about the shot but there are eight outfield Burnley players between him and Pope. In the end the ball is laid off for Oxlade-Chamberlain to fire right down the Burnley keeper's throat.
22' CLOSE! Shaqiri is given time to get a shot away 20 yards from goal. He brings it inside with his first touch and fires just off target from his second. That is a warning for Burnley.
20' Liverpool left-back Robertson sends in a teasing cross that takes Pope out of the equation. Taylor heads behind for a corner, which Barnes deals with.
19' Robertson carries the ball into the middle and Shaqiri takes over 20 yards from goal, but the attacking midfielder is soon crowded out. Burnley are looking firm at the back.
17' There has not been a great deal between the sides so far. Liverpool striker Origi has had just three touches of the ball, compared to nine for Mane and 15 for Oxlade-Chamberlain either side of him.
15' Liverpool have failed to score in their last three Premier League games, last failing in four in a row in their last five games of the 1999-2000 season. Only seven reigning top-flight champions have gone four without a goal, most recently Leicester City in 2016-17 (six), with four of those being Liverpool in 1901-02, 1906-07, 1947-48 and 1984-85.
13' SAVE! Alisson is unable to bring a high ball under control and it drops to the feet of Barnes. The Liverpool goalkeeper is just inside his box and manages to make a flying save to keep out Barnes' shot. A great recovery stop, that!
11' Liverpool have had 64 per cent of the ball so far but have yet to have a meaningful attempt on goal. Shaqiri backheels the ball towards Wijnaldum, but the midfielder cannot quite adjust his feet to get the shot away.
9' Barnes is effectively through on goal, only for his lack of pace to let him down. He waits an age for a team-mate to provide some support before eventually taking on the low shot himself from an angle, which Alisson is equal to down low. The offisde flag finally goes up.
7' BLOCK! Burnley centre-back Tarkowski heads behind before Mane can pounce. Mane's flick on is blocked by Mee and Fabinho's follow-up is dealt with by Pope.
5' Tarkowski heads the ball into the middle of the Liverpool penalty area but it is a home player who gets the next touch to clear away. Burnley will have to make the most of any set-piece opportunities.
4' Burnley just about deal with the first ball into the box but it comes back in from the right and Fabinho leaps highest. Having got to the ball, the makeshift centre-back will be disappointed not to have directed it on target.
2' Liverpool have seen plenty of the ball early on, as expected. Possession has not really been an issue for Klopp's men during their recent blip - it has been their inability to turn that into clear-cut chances.
1' KICK-OFF! Burnley, 18 points worse off than their opponents in the table, get us up and running on Merseyside.
The two sets of players have made their way out onto the field at Anfield and kick-off is now just moments away.
Burnley have taken just five points from a possible 36 in Premier League games against Liverpool (W1 D2 L9), though they were the only visiting team to leave Anfield with a point last term, largely thanks to the heroics of goalkeeper Nick Pope.
Burnley show two changes from their 1-0 defeat to West Ham last weekend. McNeil and Taylor, the latter of whom was a big fitness doubt, take over from Pieters and Gudmundsson. It is McNeil's first start since December 21, having been ruled out with a groin issue.
Salah and Firmino have been dropped to the bench for Liverpool, with Origi and Oxlade-Chamberlain coming into the starting line-up. The other change from Sunday's stalemate with Manchester United is at the back, where Matip has returned from injury to replace injured skipper Jordan Henderson.
Subs: Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Jack Cork, Kevin Long, Erik Pieters, Matej Vydra, Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Jay Rodriguez, Dale Stephens, Phil Bardsley.
BURNLEY XI (4-4-2): Nick Pope; Matt Lowton, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee (c), Charlie Taylor; Robbie Brady, Ashley Westwood, Josh Brownhill, Dwight McNeil; Chris Wood, Ashley Barnes.
Subs: Nat Phillips, Caoimhin Kelleher, Mohamed Salah, Konstantinos Tsimikas, James Milner, Takumi Minamino, Roberto Firmino, Curtis Jones, Neco Williams.
LIVERPOOL XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Fabinho, Andy Robertson; Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Thiago, Georginio Wijnaldum (c); Xherdan Shaqiri, Sadio Mane, Divock Origi.
Burnley picked up a crucial 1-0 win over Sheffield United three weeks ago but have since lost back-to-back league matches to Manchester United and West Ham by that same scoreline. Sean Dyche's side are just one place above the relegation zone, albeit with a four-point buffer on 18th-placed Fulham with this game in hand to play.
Liverpool are without a win in four Premier League games and have failed to score in the last three of those. Jurgen Klopp's men are now playing catch up as they enter this game six points adrift of leaders Manchester United, who have played one game more.
