Liverpool fumble at home again to a draw

Liverpool have scored only three goals from 73 attempted shots in their last three Premier League matches against Burnley.

"It feels odd, it feels wrong but it is a fact we drew", Klopp said in his post-match press conference.

But in what was Coutinho's first start of the season for Liverpool, the midfielder was substituted by Jurgen Klopp with his side desperately pursuing a victor against Burnley at Anfield.

"Now we are an established Premier League side with many options and good quality options".

All Whites striker Wood made a key touch in the goal for Scott Arfield as Burnley secured a fighting 1-1 draw away to Liverpool.

The result rounds off a miserable week for Liverpool, who were humiliated 5-0 by Manchester City last Saturday before opening their Champions League campaign with a 2-2 home draw with Sevilla.

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.

After rapid improvement from Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool last season, there were obvious flaws by the end of 2016-17.

"How I've said, he has trained outstanding in the few sessions we've had so far together since he was back", added Klopp.

Clarets manager Sean Dyche said: "They made seven changes had some fresh faces". "We were dominant, fantastic attitude".

Burnley are one goal better off than Liverpool in seventh place in the table after beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and enjoying draws with Tottenham and Liverpool.

Stand-in Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope frustrated the hosts on several occasions and Dominic Solanke saw an effort hit the crossbar in the closing stages as the Clarets held out for a point.

"It's always hard to replace top-class players in really good shape, but we did it last season, and I think in most of the games we did really well, so that's it".

"Going forward with the ability they've [Liverpool] got I expect their 'keeper to be making more saves than he did today".

"We have to take the point and carry on".

"I think Coutinho had a really good game, and a big impact on the game", said Klopp. "It helped him and helped us and for sure he is ready [for us] to think about".
