BURNLEY, England -- Liverpools defensive shortcomings were exposed in a 2-0 loss at promoted Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday, puncturing the optimism generated from the teams opening-weekend win at Arsenal.Sam Vokes put Burnley ahead with a shot from the edge of the area in the second minute, having been set up by Andre Gray after Liverpool right back Nathaniel Clyne gave the ball away.Gray turned scorer in the 37th when he finished off a length-of-the-field break by Burnley sparked by Daniel Sturridge getting dispossessed, which allowed new signing Steven Defour to break forward.Inconsistency and defensive weakness were Liverpools biggest problems last season under Juergen Klopp and the same trait has returned early in this campaign. Last weekend, Liverpool beat Arsenal 4-3, leaving some pundits to predict Klopps side as potential title contenders.The season is still pretty young, Klopp said. It doesnt look like we are 100 percent fine-tuned. But its only the start of the season and I can see a lot of good things.The lesson here is dont give the ball away like we did twice today. We will work on it 100 percent.Sturridge was back from injury to start up front but Liverpool missed the pace and energy of injured new signing Sadio Mane, one of the scorers against Arsenal.Boosted by scoring an early goal, Burnley was happy to concede possession, defend stoutly and hit Liverpool on the counter-attack at Turf Moor. It was the home sides first win back in the Premier League, after losing 1-0 to Swansea on the opening weekend.The first goal came early and settled us down, Vokes said. The crowd was bouncing. It was good to settle those nerves. Second half, we knew we had to dig in and defend for our lives. Thats what we did. Cheap Nike Roshe Sale .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013.

Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0.

Nike Roshe Clearance . PETERSBURG, Fla. BENSALEM, Pa. -- You couldnt wipe the smile off jockey Mike Smiths face. It wasnt just that Songbird won Saturdays Grade 1, $1 million Cotillion at Parx Racing, it was how she did it.Songbird was nice and relaxed sitting off of Carina Mia for six furlongs before going after that Grade 1 winner at the five-sixteenths pole and disposing of that rival by the three-sixteenths pole en route to a 5-3/4-length victory.Carina Mia finished 6-3/4 lengths ahead of Cathryn Sophia. Land Over Sea, Disco Rose, and Queena Esther completed the order of finish.Man, that was good, Smith said. She was so happy, so cool, calm. She drew away, but she was having fun today. Thats the old her, I was really glad to see that.The victory was the 11th in as many starts for Songbird, a daughter of Medaglia dOro owned by Rick Porters Fox Hill Farm and trained by the Hall of Famer Jerry Hollendorfer. Her combined margin of victory is 60-1/2 lengths.Songbird, last years 2-year-old filly champion, has now won seven Grade 1 races, four this year including the Santa Anita Oaks, Coaching Club American Oaks, and Alabama.Smith indicated this might have been her best performance yet.She seemed to have blossomed, I dont know if thats possible; it feels kind of strange saying that as good as shes been, said Smith, who has been aboard for all 11 wins. Look at her color, she was playing in the post parade. I couldnt believe it. I think she likes the cooler weather a little bit.Smith was as interested as everybody else how the race would play out. In the Coaching Club American Oaks, Songbird was the target and it was Carina Mia who went after her at the quarter pole, only to be repelled.On Saturday, breaking from the rail, Carina Mia went to the lead under Julien Leparoux, set fractions of 23.81 seconds for the quarter, 47.71 for the half-mile, and 1:12.04.I was wondering, didnt quite know, said Smith, when asked how he thought the race would unfold. I was going to stay out to see if they wanted to go ahead instead of pressing me on the outside this time, as opposed to the Coacching Club.dddddddddddd. I did what I did and it worked again. When you ride a filly like this just about anything works, really.Leparoux said he rode Carina Mia the way she wanted to be ridden today. ... We had the inside post, she broke good, this time Mike kind of looked at us. We didnt go crazy, crazy; she fought back, she just got beat today by a champion.Songbird covered the 1-1/16 miles in 1:44.02 and returned $2.60 as the 1-5 favorite.Here once again Songbird laid off the pace a little and ran at them when Mike asked her to, Hollendorfer said. Very grateful for her and Im very pleased the way she did that today.The victory was sweet for Porter, who was hospitalized last month and forced to miss the Alabama. He attended the Cotillion.With this filly its special anywhere, he said. Shes just incredible. The performances she puts in time and time again; the way she gets out of that gate and Mike lets her do what she wants to do. Its just so much fun to watch her run.It wasnt fun for John Servis, the trainer of Cathryn Sophia, who, along with locally based owner Chuck Zacney, had targeted the Cotillion since the beginning of the year. Cathryn Sophia, sitting third behind Songbird and Carina Mia approaching the quarter pole, came up empty in the stretch under Javier Castellano.Im very surprised, I thought maybe she was a little flat, because I thought shed be a little closer to the pace, Servis said. [Castellano] said no, she was comfortable as can be and I was just sitting. He said at the three-eighths pole I thought I was a winner. She just didnt go on.Songbird will return to Southern California on Wednesday and point to the $2 million Distaff at Santa Anita on Nov. 4, when she could face champions Beholder and Stellar Wind.Jerry and I agree the Distaff is the race to run her in, Porter said. I know were hooking some big cheese in that race. Thats the fun of it, hook the big ones and hope to beat them.
