Ashley Barnes celebrates at Anfield

London, January 22: Ashley Barnes converted an 83rd-minute penalty as Burnley condemned Liverpool to a first home defeat in the Premier League since April 2017.

Having been fouled by Alisson for the spot kick, Barnes fired home from 12 yards out to secure his side three welcome - and unexpected - points to move them away from the relegation zone.

Defeat means Liverpool remain six points behind leaders Manchester United in the table.
