Liverpool head into the international break on top of the Premier League after extending their 100 per cent record to four matches with a 3-0 win at Burnley.

An own goal by Chris Wood, deflecting in Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross, was added to by Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino as Jurgen Klopp's side regained top spot just over two hours after Manchester City had briefly overtaken them.

It was an afternoon of firsts for the Reds. First time the club have won 13 consecutive league matches. First time they have have won their opening four matches in back-to-back seasons. First clean sheet of the season. And Firmino becoming the first Brazilian to score 50 Premier League goals.

But this was a different type of victory to what had gone before, grinding it out before moving through the gears when they spotted the right opportunity.
