Fans are back inside football stadiums, and what a glorious racket it has been.

Last week the word felt normal again as chants, cheers and jeers rang out from the famous terraces around the country.

However, one of the most famous of England's stadiums was made to wait one extra week for its return to life with Liverpool playing their first game away from home.

Anfield was back at its magnificent best today as the capacity Merseyside crowd welcomed Burnley to the home of the 19-time Champions.

It is the first time Liverpool have had a capacity crowd since they ended their Premier League drought and the famous Kop certainly made itself heard.

In what was a truly emotional moment, the Liverpool faithful belted out one of the best renditions of their famous anthems we have ever heard.

After months of haunting fake crowd noise, 'You'll Never Walk Alone' never sounded quite so good.

The fans gave it their all and you could tell, just by the expression on the players' faces, how much it meant.

Superb.

The Reds would go on to continue their dominance in the second half as they pushed to kill off the game.

Burnley proved to be a stubborn force to break down but eventually a ruthless move unlocked the door for Mane to lash home.

There were a few nervy moments at the back as the minutes ticked away but Alisson showed why he is considered one of the best in the league with some fine saves of his own.

Liverpool would hold out to keep a clean sheet and top the standings for the time being.

For the likes of Thiago and Diogo Jota it was a special moment, while Virgil van Dijk would've been absolutely buzzing to be back on the famous Anfield turf in a playing capacity.
