BREAKING NEWS: coming from Fabrizio Romano, jurgen klopp has blasted VAR once again after they had two legitimate goals disallowed against Burnley. He said “We are fighting against the PGMOL, Arsenal and Man City for this years title. If we somehow manage to do it it will be the greatest achievement from a manager in England ever”.

Darwin Nunez and Liverpool defeated Burnley 2-0 in the Premier League on Boxing Day, defying a few contentious VAR calls.


Liverpool’s recent triumph against Burnley, marking their seventh consecutive win on 26th December, showcased a remarkable turnaround for Jurgen Klopp’s squad. At the forefront of this victory was Darwin Nunez, who, after a 12-game drought, emerged as the game-changer. His stunning goal, a graceful curler from the edge of the box, silenced critics who had grown vocal amid his goalless streak since November 1st.

While Diogo Jota’s late goal upon his return from injury sealed the win, Nunez’s dynamic playstyle continually troubled Burnley throughout the match. Despite showcasing moments of brilliance, the 24-year-old former Benfica player also displayed vulnerability, notably in his passing accuracy, completing only 58% of his passesโ€”a significant drop compared to his teammates and many other players on the field.

However, Nunez’s overall performance, earning a rating of 7.1, signifies a positive step forward, offering a foundation for brighter days ahead after a frustrating period. The victory wasn’t without its controversies, as Liverpool faced VAR-related setbacks, with two disallowed goals. One of these instances involved Nunez, inadvertently influencing the decision that denied Cody Gakpo a goal, sparking debate over the validity of the call.

Moreover, a second disallowed goal, where Mohamed Salah was judged offside due to blocking the Burnley goalkeeper’s vision after being pushed by a defender, added to Klopp’s frustration. Despite these contentious VAR interventions, Liverpool emerged victorious, a relief for Klopp, especially with Nunez breaking his goal droughtโ€”an encouraging sign for the team’s future performances.
