Liverpool Boss Klopp: Burnley Draw Is Our Fault

Coutinho is in the starting XI for Saturday's match with Burnley.

Philippe Coutinho's Premier League return ended in disappointment, as the Clarets, who have won only once in their 23 visits to Anfield, opened the scoring in the 27th minute courtesy of Scott Arfield. First Robbie Brady beat Trent Alexander-Arnold in the air.

However, he played a significant part in their 27th-minute opener, using his strength to win a cross ahead of both Liverpool central defenders, Ragner Klavan, and partner Joel Matip.

Salah appeared to have been fouled but a penalty appeal was waved away - the ball came over to Solanke inside the 6 yard box and whoosh - onto the crossbar. He did it in 500 other situations really well.


"If this ball goes out to the right hand side, you watch Emre Can who's with him now, then he goes with him". Burnley, meanwhile, have registered five points from trips to Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool, proving Sean Dyche's team are no longer pushovers away from home. Opponents don't need to do anything special to score against Liverpool and Burnley's goal was so easily avoidable.

With the captain out for several months after surgery this week Pope is set for an extended run in the side and his first start at this level will come at Anfield today against Liverpool. The main measure is when you play, you've still got to see improvement on a daily basis and I think we have seen that. Of course, we have to win games. Yet, what remains worrisome is that the defence was rarely tested by Burnley, and on the rare occasions when they were, they made a huge mess of things.

Liverpool have kept just two clean sheets in their eight games in all competitions so far this season and have a goal difference of zero in the Premier League, compared to plus ten for Manchester United and plus 14 for Manchester City.

"We all know the extent to which Tom's professionalism goes, and he's as good as it gets".


"A lot of parts of the game I was really happy with".

"We made one big mistake around their goal". Nearly created a late victor with a fine run and terrific cross to the back post, but Alexander-Arnold's shot was well saved by the keeper. I saw a great attitude.

"We know it's tough coming to these places and we are willing to do the bits that are nitty gritty in the game".
