Having beaten Luton 3-0 in the third round, the youth team went out of the FA Youth Cup tonight, losing 4-1 against Liverpool at the Kirkby Academy.

It was a difficult start. Melkamu Frauendorf gave Liverpool a third minute lead and it was soon 2-0 with Mateusz Musialowski finding the net in just the 11th minute.

It remained 2-0 until half time although Michael Mellon, back in action following an unreported injury, twice came close.

Liverpool scored again on 53 minutes through Oakley Cannonier but Sean Etaluku (pictured), who has broken into the under-23s recently, pulled one back, scoring from a Dane McCullough cross but almost immediately it was 4-1 with Musialowski scoring his second to complete the scoring.

Liverpool coach Marc Bridge-Wilkinson said: “I think the performance was OK. I think we can do things a lot better. Credit to Burnley, they made it really difficult. They came with a game plan and tried to play forward quickly and put us under pressure. The lads coped with that quite well.

“I think everybody performed to a really good level. I know that we can play better individually and collectively, but we’ve got to be pleased with the result and the performance.”

The teams were;

Liverpool: Harvey Davies, Isaac Mabaya, Terence Miles, Luke Chambers, Callum Scanlon, Stefan Bajcetic, James Balagizi, Melkamu Frauendorf, Mateusz Musialowski, Bobby Clark (James McConell 84), Oakley Cannonier. Subs not used: Luke Hewitson, Tommy Pilling, Josh Davidson, Keyrol Figueroa.

Burnley: Sam Waller, Jack Leckie, Dan Sassi, Ben Ward, Dane McCullough, Sean Etaluku (George Walters 82), Will Hugill, Will Couch (Keelan Williams 65), Jacson Coppack (Ruairi Behan 82), Kade Ratchford. Subs not used: Charlie Casper, Nathan James, Trevon Bryan, Joe Westley.
