Liverpool win 1000th home point in Premier League after Burnley draw

Goal - Arfield 26' - I don't know how many more ways I can think of to say that our defense isn't very good.

It was, as Tarkowski, linked up with Brady who headed across the edge of the box, helped by a Chris Wood touch onto an unmarked Arfield who eased the ball past some questionable defending to steer the ball past Simon Mignolet.

Jurgen Klopp will have a balancing act this season as Liverpool try to make progress in both the Champions League and the Premier League.

Philippe Coutinho was back in the Liverpool team after failing to get his desired move to Barcelona and saw plenty of the ball in the early stages as Liverpool established the pattern of attack versus the Burnley defence.

And while that lead lasted only a few minutes - Mohamed Salah making it 1-1 at half-time - the Clarets defended superbly to stop Liverpool breaking through again before nearly pinching a famous win themselves through inspirational stand-in skipper Ben Mee in a breathless finish.

The alterations did not have the desired effect even though Mohamed Salah had swiftly cancelled out Scott Arfield's opener during the first half.

The second half picked up were the first had left off, with Liverpool probing and Burnley trying to contain them.

Previously Manchester United and Arsenal passed the milestone, with Chelsea joining them as the third team last season.

Coutinho was expected to shoulder the burden in the suspended Mane's absence, but it was Salah who stepped up to lead Liverpool's front line. But only one goal. Unfortunately, I still don't feel any positivity in this moment, I am still in the 1-1 mood, but it is easy to see all the positive things from tomorrow on again.

Dominic Solanke hit the crossbar late on and Pope turned in a top display in-between the sticks, but Liverpool cannot continue to dominate games to such an extent yet look back at defensive blunders and what could have been.

"The goalkeeper has some outstanding saves and was lucky with the crossbar, but it was an unbelievably hard game". Of course, we have to win games.

"We have quality and now we have to use this quality consistently, that should be the plan", said Klopp.

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

"We made one big mistake around their goal".
