Liverpool have started the new Premier League campaign well and they were able to secure top spot on the league table with a straightforward 2-0 win over Burnley. The Reds made no mistake in front of a packed Anfield crowd as they picked up the three points at stake at the expense of the Clarets.
Netherlands international Virgil Van Dijkis the leader in the Liverpool defence and he was an absentee in the Reds squad for the majority of last season due to a serious knee injury. He was back in a Premier League squad for the Reds in the opening game of the new season at Norwich City who were promoted to the top flight after they won the Championship title last season. Netherlands player Van Dijk marshalled the defence as Liverpool thrashed Norwich City 3-0 away from home in their Premier League opener this season.
Diogo Jota, Brazilian substitute Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah were on target for the Reds against the Canaries.
