Coutinho and Liverpool frustrated as Burnley punish dodgy defence

Burnley’s Nick Pope makes a save after a shot from Dominic Solanke

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

Burnley demonstrated their organisation and defensive mettle in both matches last season and this match is coming hot on the heels of Liverpool's Champions League matchup against Sevilla.

Klopp left his subs late, too late for some, but when Dominic Solanke came on he perhaps spurned the greatest chance of a game. Tom Heaton underwent surgery on an injured shoulder earlier this week and was replaced in goal by Nick Pope.

The Clarets failed to win any of their opening 17 away games in the division past year but have already picked up four points from their two matches on their travels this time.

Starting the game slowly, Liverpool was surprised by by a goal from Burnley in the 27th minute.

And so far this season, the Clarets have been smashing the competition.

As has become the standard Liverpool way, they looked much better at the other end of the pitch.

US President Donald Trump will visit the hard-hit Florida cities of Naples and Fort Myres on Thursday to view the damage. Irma earlier left a trail of destruction in the Caribbean, where almost 40 people were killed.

Pope, relatively comfortable in the first half, looked less so in spilling Can's shot from the edge of area and the goalkeeper, jeered throughout the first half by Liverpool supporters for time wasting, was finally booked for the offence on 54 minutes.

Jeff Hendrick is on track for an Anfield return to action after overcoming a thigh injury. Obviously we have quality and now we have to use this quality consistently, that should be the plan.

"I'm not happy. I'm angry with the result, but pleased with the performance", the Reds boss said. For reasons unknown outside of Anfield, Klopp has shown a tendency to continually switch his choice of keeper as well as his outfield players.

The centre back pairing is the real issue of the back line, though.

With a metaphorical game of musical chairs on the team-sheet every week, Klopp is inadvertently contributing to a lack of confidence, communication and chemistry at the back for the Reds.

Burnley's away form in the Premier League last season was wretched, taking until the end of April to win at Crystal Palace for their first victory on the road. The Liverpool front man does brilliantly to control Can's long ball, he brushes off a challenge before powering the ball into the back of the net from inside the box.

This will be Liverpool's first of three matches without Sadio Mané as he serves a ban following a red card against Manchester City.
