Liverpool frustrated by battling Burnley

17 September 2017

It was exciting stuff at Anfield as both teams went for the victor and substitute Dominic Solanke's effort disappointingly hit the crossbar.

Burnley managed to hold Jurgen Klopp's side to a 1-1 draw at Anfield and, understandably, the Kop was not happy when the final whistle went. I don't know why [it's not a penalty]. What should it be? "Obviously the crowd needs to get a little bit used to his style of play but this is modern football; he takes the ball and he has cool build-up". You need to have luck in football, and you need to have the referee who makes the right decisions. Liverpool will be pleased to see Coutinho back in the starting line-up, but what they were really crying out for was the rapid speed of Sadio Mane to unlock a stubborn back-line.

"It feels odd, it feels wrong but it is a fact we drew", Klopp said in his post-match press conference.

Klopp gained acclaim for his impressive managerial performance at Borussia Dortmund after the Bundesliga outfit won the title in successive seasons ahead of cash rich Bayern Munich.

Despite a dominating performance Liverpool dropped two points against Burnley on Saturday night, leaving further question marks regarding the club's recent transfer window.

"We created a finishing situation often enough, it could have been more often".

The off-colour Coutinho was replaced by Solanke late on and the substitute could have turned one point into three, but he contrived to hit the woodwork with the goal gaping.

WH denies reports that Trump is softening stance on Paris climate deal
In June, a newly elected Trump publicly rejected the deal, which he called "unfair at the highest level to the United States". There was a lot of blowback from the global community when Trump announced he was pulling us out of Paris.

With the Burnley wingers pegged back in defensive duties, they lacked a clear outlet to attack and only an early gift from Palace proved to be the difference between these two sides. "For me, that is the No.1", explained the German manager.

"That's the thing we have to accept but a draw is hard to accept at the moment".

"The quality is there and I saw a great attitude". I saw them running, I saw them playing, I saw them fighting.

HALFTIME: Liverpool doing that "everything but scoring" thing they like to do that inevitably leads to the opposition sneaking a victory with their one shot on target.

"I think Coutinho had a really good game, and a big impact on the game", said Klopp.

"He was different class. Heats gets the plaudits he deserves and we wish him well for his recovery", Arfield added.
