Burnley hold on to draw with Liverpool

Postado Setembro 17, 2017

The Brazilian's return to the Liverpool squad has come at a timely moment for Klopp, as he will be without star winger Sadio Mane for the next three matches, following his controversial red card against Manchester City last Saturday. "We need to enjoy the job, because that's what Burnley are doing". The experience of a second consecutive season in the top flight is showing in players who have taken five points from visits to Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea.

Burnley go into the game level on points with Liverpool and managed to prevail past Crystal Palace last weekend.

Klopp has been tasked with bringing the Premier League title to Liverpool for the first time after he was brought in as Brendan Rodgers' successor at Anfield back in October 2015.

He admitted: "Could Trent (Alexander-Arnold) have won the first headed challenge? Yes". However, it must be frustrating for Klopp to see that Liverpool can't do the same despite having excellent players at their disposal.

Klopp also refuted any suggestion that he continues to place too much trust in error-prone players, with the German coach eager to point out that no-one is flawless and that form can fluctuate.

Sean Dyche's side nearly claimed all three points as they managed to gain some territory late on, with Ben Mee seeing powerful headers from consecutive corners cleared off the line in the final 10 minutes, first by Matip, then goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

"The defender can not do exactly the same because it is a foul and I don't know if it was in the box". Also conceded a corner late on when he went for the same ball as Emre Can, even though there was no Burnley player in the vicinity.

For all the hosts' dominance, Dyche will have been confident that his side needed just one chance to take the lead and so it came to pass.

He leaves one of our most expensive transfers on the bench for James Milner.

The 31-year-old was taken off in the 36th minute after being treated on the pitch for several minutes. Nicolas Otamendi added a fourth in the second half with a close-range header. Not as influential after the break but probably should have been awarded a late penalty when he surged into the box and was felled by Mee.

Clarets manager Sean Dyche said: "They made seven changes had some fresh faces".
