Liverpool win 1000th home point in Premier League after Burnley draw

Liverpool win 1000th home point in Premier League after Burnley draw”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised Burnley boss Sean Dyche for the work he has done with the club - claiming that the way he has the Clarets organised makes it very hard to play against.

Dominic Solanke hit the crossbar late on, but Klopp felt a penalty could have been awarded when Salah went down in the box just before that.

Klopp explained: "I'm not happy, I'm angry with the result but pleased with the performance".

"It's our fault. We were dominant, fantastic attitude".

Mohamed Salah - the Champions League game one Player of the Week - equalised for the home side with a cool touch and finish only three minutes later, but there would be no more goals in the next hour of play.

But only one goal.

The goals opened up what had been a tight affair with Salah, twice, and Sturridge testing Pope with low shots that were comfortably dealt with.

Burnley are now above Liverpool in the Premier League table with a better goal difference thanks to picking up two wins in their first four fixtures against Chelsea and Crystal Palace.

However, after picking up seven points from a possible twelve in the Premier League this season, four of those points coming against last season's two top teams, the Clarets will have good reason to believe they can compete against anyone at present. 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. We were unlucky there previous year, we took the lead and had them on the back foot for most of the game.

It again highlighted the weakness of a Liverpool defence that has been under the microscope over the opening weeks of the season and Klopp's furious response on the touchline spoke volumes about his own view of proceedings.

Despite that, Klopp was pleased with the Brazilian's outing, which saw him get a positive reception, having come off the bench to a similarly warm welcome in the match against Sevilla.

However, there was good news on the Philippe Coutinho front. "He had a little cramp at the end".

It was the greatest difference in shots attempted in the Premier League since October 2016, when Manchester United took 31 more shots than Burnley.

The Clarets continued their remarkable record away from home as they secured a first ever Premier League point on Merseyside.
