Klopp: Liverpool could have won every game

Klopp: Liverpool could have won every game

That's probably because of how many shots his team had to take the win - but they just didn't manage it. Trent Alexander-Arnold lost a header to the diminutive Robbie Brady.

Philippe Coutinho persuaded Jurgen Klopp to substitute him towards the end of Liverpool's 1-1 draw against Burnley after cramping up in his first Premier League match of the season. Burnely, meanwhile, have registered five points from trips to Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool, proving Sean Dyche's team are no longer pushovers away from home.

Liverpool's last match: Manchester City 5-0 LiverpoolThe Reds' last Premier League match was a humbling 5-0 defeat away at City.

"I said if there would have been a solution out there we would have done it".

Liverpool then squandered countless good attacking positions as Burnley defended stoutly against a constant stream of forays forward from the hosts. A good goal for them. You know they're going to have some efforts but if you keep them as far out as we kept them, as in distance from the goal, you know the stats say it's much harder to score from 30 yards than it is from six.

The 31-year-old was taken off in the 36th minute after being treated on the pitch for several minutes. That in and of itself is another familiar theme, but just because Liverpool is in a rut, it doesn't mean that I have to fall in to it with them; it's too early in the season for that, isn't it?

We know that we have analysed that well and we know that what we missed there and it's important that we correct it. In terms of team news , we'll see the return of all the first team players weren't involved in the midweek match.

For Luis Muriel's injury-time miss, read Ben Mee's twin headers, one cleared off the line by Joel Matip, the other saved superbly by Simon Mignolet.

Feeling his oats a bit in the post-match press scrum, Dyche talked about his side's gameplan and how he exploited some key weaknesses in Liverpool's sqaud.

The Reds brought in four new players in the summer, signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke and Andy Robertson.

Late on, sub Dominic Solanke hit the frame of the goal as Liverpool pushed for that elusive victor.

"Seven changes and playing this type of football, no one should take it for granted". Klopp's tactics aren't short on entertainment, but it's starting to look like they'll be a fundamental shift required if we're ever going to solve our problems at the back. The Brazilian had very little space to work with as the visitors shielded their goal impressively but Coutinho is a player who has done better in tougher situations before.
