Liverpool boss Klopp not happy with ‘aggressive’ Burnley tackling

"The Reds unsung hero James Milner will play his 500th Premier League game at the Vitality Stadium and it was no surprise to me that it was Milner who was the catalyst for Liverpool's dramatic comeback against the Clarets in midweek".

But the German hit back in his press conference today: "Daniel Sturridge is no cheat".

Mane's availability for the clash is not yet certain but manager Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to have the winger at his disposal against Eddie Howe's side. I'm not sure if he spoke about the challenge of [Phil] Bardsley on Alberto Moreno. We have our own aims and our own interests that's how it is.

He went on to say: 'It wasn't a foul but they can not do that. I don't know if the referee even judged it.

"The game's really hard and sometimes a striker expects a tackle and you try to avoid that by jumping". Who wants to discuss Daniel?

The Liverpool defender fractured his leg during the victory against Burnley on Wednesday night, leaving the pitch in the 23rd minute on a stretcher and having to be replaced.

Speaking in the video on Liverpool's Twitter account, Gomez said: 'Hi everyone, it's Joe, I just wanted to say thank you to you all for your kind messages and well wishes. He was in outstanding shape, he helped us a lot and especially because we could make these changes with Trent [Alexander-Arnold] and Joe and that was really important because Trent is still a young boy and we cannot push [him] through 20 games in a row.

"But I don't think they can reinvent the rules". We will see what we will do but we have other options of course.

He acknowledged Gomez's progress this season: "Together with Virgil, he improved so much ... it is a bit lucky because it could have been worse".

Liverpool are up against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium next and will have to look to World Cup finalist Dejan Lovren to fill in the spot of Gomez.
