Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp defends back line, transfer strategy

Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has praised his players for executing the game plan during their 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield this afternoon.

At some point, somebody like Arsenal will be on the end of another Liverpool hiding but today Burnley got another great result to add to those they got against Spurs and Chelsea in what is shaping up to be a good season for them.

However this weekend was far less of an anomaly, in fact it was the complete status quo as Liverpool failed to beat a team most people would expect them to beat.

England worldwide striker Daniel Sturridge starts up front while Roberto Firmino has been moved to the left-wing.

6 - Jurgen Klopp made seven changes to the side that drew 2-2 with Sevilla in midweek.

However, there was good news on the Philippe Coutinho front.

Burnley's Scottish-born Canadian midfielder Scott Arfield (2nd L) celebrates with teammates after scoring the opening goal. I know the boys are ready to work but we also need to be ready not to get frustrated if different situations don't come through, and not lose confidence because this or that doesn't work.

And the first-time finish from the Canadian worldwide was top-class as he passed the ball into the bottom corner of Simon Mignolet's net from 15 yards.

Liverpool were back on terms four minutes later, when Emre Can's lofted ball over the top found Salah, who managed to squeeze a shot between two Burnley bodies and inside Pope's near post.

The momentum was back with the Merseysiders and stayed that way after the break as Burnley struggled to gain any sustained possession against a wave of red shirts.

And as long as that remains the case, Liverpool will continue to promise much, but achieve little.

The Reds racked up 35 efforts at goal to the Clarets' five, but could have lost had Joel Matip not cleared Ben Mee's header off the line late on.

And with 10 minutes to go, the Clarets twice nearly grabbed a dramatic victor as they suddenly looked the ones full of running. After a long punt out the back, Trent Alexander-Arnold was too easily beaten in an aerial duel with Robbie Brady.

It's 7th v 8th in this Saturday kick-off as Liverpool and Burnley hope to gain ground on their rivals early in the season.

This will be Liverpool's first of three matches without Sadio Mané as he serves a ban following a red card against Manchester City.
