Burnley v Liverpool 3-0 (League match: October 24, 1914)

October 24, 1914
Key note: “For the fourth time this year Burnley have met and defeated Liverpool, and Saturday’s victory at Turf Moor gives them a goal average of 14-3 over their Mersey side opponents in those four meetings. In addition to these four meetings, it should also be remember that Burnley played Liverpool in a charity match at Liverpool, four days after the English Cup final, and lost by 1-0, so that the goal average in the five matches this year is 14-4. And at the outset it would just be as well to say that if Liverpool want to beat a team of Burnley’s calibre they will have to get a better half-back line, and their forwards will have to try to learn the lost art of shooting.” (Burnley News: October 28, 1914)
