MATCH of the Day pundit Phil Neville hailed an 'unbelievable' defensive display from Burnley in their 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

The Clarets soaked up plenty of pressure at Anfield to claim a point and make it three away games unbeaten at the start of the season, following the win at Chelsea and draw with Tottenham.

Liverpool took 35 shots at goal during the game but Burnley held firm and Neville was impressed with the defensive organisation from Sean Dyche's side and their desire to do the dirty work at the back.

"They were unbelievable. In an era where you don't see many good defenders around one-v-one you're talking about a brilliant defensive unit," Neville said of the Clarets.

"Sometimes when they get beat and you think there's going to be a goal, it's Jack Cork here with unbelievable last-ditch defending and Ben Mee intercepts. They're always around the ball, they never leave themselves isolated and I think Sean Dyche is a brilliant defensive coach the way he sets his teams out.

"They enjoy defending, I watch Premier League teams and everyone wants to bomb forward, these actually enjoy it."

Host Gary Lineker had described Burnley as 'heroically stoic' after the game and Alan Shearer praised Scott Arfield's 'excellent finish' which had given Burnley the lead, although Shearer was critical of Liverpool's defending.

Of Burnley's start to the season away from home, Shearer added: "Bearing in mind they only got seven points on the road last season they've got five already and they've won at Chelsea, drawn at Spurs and now the point there, so he's obviously worked on that side of the game and they're doing well at it."
