Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

The Egyptian forward collected Emre Can's ball through the middle on the edge of the box and, after two quick touches, coolly finished low past goalkeeper Nick Pope. We played good, were fluent with seven changes.

When the Liverpool team was announced at around 2 pm yesterday, fans were full of optimism as Philippe Coutinho started his first game of the season.

But despite Liverpool's dominance Joel Matip was called into action late on to head off the line, after Mignolet failed to get near a Burnley header from a corner.

Tom Heaton has been a consistent performer for Burnley in their goal.

Expecting a win, though, Anfield gradually became more irritated and frustrated in the second half - much to the annoyance of Klopp, who became more agitated with the collective groans from the stands. The Australian worldwide may have cost a reported 15m, but he could be worth his weight in gold if his goals keep Burnley in the Premier League again.

The alterations did not have the desired effect even though Mohamed Salah had swiftly cancelled out Scott Arfield's opener during the first half. I think a 2-1 Liverpool win is the most likely result but Burnley will be given opportunities to get a result by Liverpool's poor defence.

Chelsea boss brutal when asked about thoughts on Wenger and Arsenal
I don't understand why they can't fight for the title. A lot of time it's very difficult to understand why. We have to try to think only to play the game.

"I understand and know the reasons why maybe a lot of people are doing that, but we have our way and it's not the worst".

"We've got a game on Tuesday in the cup and then another league game against Leicester, so it's important we get back to winning ways and this whole week we'll be focusing on that". "But only one goal". Their keeper made a few outstanding saves. I told the boys already, this is a wonderful line-up but we shouldn't rely on this.

Why we feel so disappointed or frustrated is because we all see what this team would be able to do.

"For me it's really hard always to come completely on your planet, visit you and say 'Yeah you're right, there were five good options out there and we missed them because, I don't know, we wanted to spend the money anywhere else'".

Klopp insisted he is optimistic about his side's chances of taking points from a hard run of games, saying: "Now we go to Leicester, Leicester again, then we go to Moscow and then Newcastle and if we can keep the shape and improve the other things, I think everybody has seen already we can be really strong. We did not plan to take him off but we had to decide differently".
