Sunday afternoon Premier League action…12/08/2018

The Premier League continued on Sunday afternoon with Liverpool crushing  West Ham United by four goals to nil at Anfield. Declan Rice started in a midfield holding role for the ‘Hammers’ but was substituted at half-time. Burnley travelled to St Mary’s and played out a scoreless draw with hosts Southampton. Shane Long did not make the ‘Saints’ matchday squad but Stephen Ward and Jeff Hendrick started for the ‘Clarets’. Jon Walters was on the visiting bench but it was bad news for Kevin Long who missed out on the matchday squad for the first time in over a year while Robbie Brady is still not considered fit enough for selection.
