Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Burnley draw feels 'strange' and 'wrong'

Jurgen Klopp

It finished 1-1, Liverpool dropping a precious two points, and Houghton admits he was expecting much more from Klopp's side.

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.

"We created a finishing situation often enough, it could have been more often but it was the best game against Burnley since I was here, not result wise but performance wise".

Scott Arfield opened the scoring against the run of play with a fine finish 27 minutes into proceedings only for Mohamed Salah to equalise with a low shot three minutes later.

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope said: "We were really resilient and defended really well".

After an absolutely soul-crushing 5-0 defeat to Manchester City last weekend and another disappointing game against Sevilla in the mid-week Champions League match, the home crowd at Anfield was itching for a positive effort.

Burnley has picked up away points at three of last season's top-six teams, beating Chelsea on the opening day and drawing against Tottenham at Wembley.

Liverpool dominated the game. Sadio Mané was inevitably missed as he started a three-match suspension but with Philippe Coutinho making his first start of the campaign and Daniel Sturridge his second, the quality of the hosts' attack demanded a disciplined, concentrated reaction from the visitors. The Egypt worldwide read the delivery perfectly, unlike Ward and Ben Mee who backed off and allowed Salah to control inside the penalty area and steer a fine low finish beyond Burnley's stand-in goalkeeper Nick Pope.

"We made one big mistake around their goal". In a lot of moments of this game you can not play better football than we did today but we didn't finish the situations with their goalkeeper making two outstanding saves.

Coutinho makes his first starting lineup of the season. Headers went wide, shots went over and substitute Dominic Solanke even hit the cross-bar from about 4 yards out. Coutinho's return to match fitness could also see him line up at left wing, although his presence would be most keenly felt in the centre of the park.

It was exciting stuff at Anfield as both teams went for the victor and substitute Dominic Solanke's effort disappointingly hit the crossbar.

"Coutinho did well. He needs rhythm and was getting better as the game went on", Klopp said.
