Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

"It's great to see the progression".

The Reds, who welcomed back Philippe Coutinho to their starting XI, had 35 shots on Burnley's goal but were made to settle for a point, with Mo Salah's strike swiftly cancelling out Scott Arfield's 27th-minute opener.

This latest frustrating draw at Anfield follows one in midweek, when Liverpool surrendered a 2-1 lead to share the points with Sevilla in their opening Champions League group game.

Liverpool needed a good response after a demoralizing defeat to Manchester City last weekend and the fixture against Burnley provided an opportunity for redemption for the Reds.

"Why we feel so disappointed or frustrated is because we all see what this team would be able to do". I think we showed that last week. We thought that would be important.

Liverpool's defensive failings were again exposed with this incident, but up front they just couldn't get the ball over the line.

"It feels unusual, it feels wrong but it is a fact we drew", said Klopp.

While Liverpool often failed to find the killer finish and should have been more clinical, Burnley were consistently fantastic in defence, with Tarkowski, in particular, intervening at crucial moments with a well-timed block or tackle.

Liverpool have a very convincing home record against Burnley and will no doubt be comforted in the knowledge that the Lanchashire side have not won at Anfield since 1974 when the two clubs met in the old Division One. "This is where we have to improve".

The Merseyside outfit failed to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk in the summer transfer window despite the Netherlands international's interest in a switch to Liverpool. Apes. Solanke volley from a distance of 4 meters just hit the crossbar.

"But it is 1-1, I'm not happy about it because of the performance". At the end of the season, he will have 85 or 87 per cent of all games I think.

"But in the dressing room and within ourselves we know we are going there full of confidence and looking to take the game on". It's not going to happen.

"It's nearly subliminal at times".

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.

"But we're not naive".
