Liverpool Drop Points in Frustrating Home Draw Despite Dominance over Burnley

Liverpool Drop Points in Frustrating Home Draw Despite Dominance over Burnley

And while that lead lasted only a few minutes - Mohamed Salah making it 1-1 at half-time - the Clarets defended superbly to stop Liverpool breaking through again before nearly pinching a famous win themselves through inspirational stand-in skipper Ben Mee in a breathless finish.

Klopp admitted it would have "been typical" for Liverpool had they scored from either or both of those chances and that is the problem - being so commanding without killing off a game is too much of a distinctive trait for the Merseysiders.

However, with Nick Pope in fine form between the posts for the Clarets, Liverpool struggled to turn their dominance into goals.

Jürgen Klopp did change the XI, giving Coutinho his first start of the season and also adding Daniel Sturridge into the mix.

Coutinho was one of seven changes made by manager Jurgen Klopp from the team that drew 2-2 against Sevilla in midweek.

A late sending off and defensive errors again proved costly for Liverpool who let their lead slip against the Spanish side after dominating large portions of the match.

While the Brazilian may not necessarily be in it from the start, it sounds like Simon Mignolet will be back between the sticks after sitting out the meeting with the Andalusians.

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.

"I don't think anyone would have given us a chance of getting five points [at Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool] but the important thing is we do".

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

"Second-half, when you really need your keeper he makes two great saves". The drop-off in Liverpool's attacking play has been a common theme in those matches, as they've won only six times without the Senegalese winger.

Liverpool have a penalty waved away, and the rebound by Solanke hits the crossbar.

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.
