Premier League: Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Premier League: Burnley 2-0 Liverpool

Sam Vokes and Andre Gray scored their first Premier League goals as Burnley beat Liverpool for the first time in the history of the competition.

The pair struck in the first half to give the Clarets their first Premier League win over their opponents at the fifth attempt.

Gray created Vokes’ early opener – robbing Nathaniel Clyne and feeding the Wales international, who turned and fired home from the edge of the area.

Gray then found the net himself with a low left-foot shot from the edge of the area, after he had collected a pass from record signing Steven Defour on his debut.

Liverpool dominated possession and had numerous chances but could not find the net.

Roberto Firminho came closest early in the second half but Clarets goalkeeper Tom Heaton superbly tipped his goal-bound effort past the post.

Clyne and Georginio Widnaldum had late efforts but Burnley held out to record their first win of the season.
