Had it not been for Salah's clinical goal, Liverpool might have had to concede three points to Burnley. But what followed was more a failure of Klopp's attack to break down Burnley's determined defence as they finished with 35 shots but just nine on target. At some point, somebody like Arsenal will be on the end of another Liverpool hiding but today Burnley got another great result to add to those they got against Spurs and Chelsea in what is shaping up to be a good season for them.
Philippe Coutinho is set to start his first Liverpool game this season when the Reds take on Burnley in the Premier League, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. I thought we done that well today.
Liverpool will be determined to return to winning ways after last week's 5-0 defeat to Manchester City was followed by a 2-2 draw with Sevilla in the Champions League. "We were dominant, fantastic attitude".
Centre-backs Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip failed to deal with a cross into the box and Chris Wood's unchallenged knockdown allowed Arfield to coolly slot into the bottom corner to give Burnley - winless at Anfield since 1974 - a shock lead after 27 minutes.
"Raggy was there and the ball bounced in the wrong direction and Robbo he knows he could see Arfield quicker".
Liverpool's week worsened further as they were held to a draw at home by a sturdy Burnley side - a result which they might not have fathomed. A good goal for them. Liverpool continued to dominate and Burnley rediscovered their resilience to frustrate them. Emre Can created a swift equaliser with a measured ball over the top from just inside his own half. Simon Mignolet will likely replace Karius in the goal.
Feeling his oats a bit in the post-match press scrum, Dyche talked about his side's gameplan and how he exploited some key weaknesses in Liverpool's sqaud. After seeing Salah denied a penalty from a hefty Ben Mee challenge, he played on and crossed for substitute Dominic Solanke, who hit the crossbar while attempting to open his Liverpool account. Klopp's tactics aren't short on entertainment, but it's starting to look like they'll be a fundamental shift required if we're ever going to solve our problems at the back.
"Seven changes and playing this type of football, no one should take it for granted. But I don't want to make too much of a big deal because I believe in my players, however much they cost".
