Burnley take a point from wasteful Liverpool

Liverpool now face successive trips to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City in the League Cup and the Premier League respectively.

However, as fans begin to write off the Reds' Premier League title chances, maybe they'll have more luck in 2017-18?

Liverpool hadn't lost at home against Burnley for over 40 years entering today's game.

Liverpool were relatively untroubled for most of the game, but they always find a way to stumble in matches.

Mohamed Salah quickly cancelled out Scott Arfield's 27th minute opener, but the Reds could not complete the comeback despite enjoying complete domination.

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

Liverpool, refreshed by seven changes to the team that started the Champions League draw with Sevilla in midweek, controlled proceedings only to encounter stubborn resistance and creak under the first spell of Burnley pressure.

Sean Dyche's side nearly claimed all three points as they managed to gain some territory late on, with Ben Mee seeing powerful headers from consecutive corners cleared off the line in the final 10 minutes, first by Matip, then goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

There's very little doubt that the Reds missed Sadio Mane but they would have been buoyed by the return of Phillipe Coutinho to the starting line-up.

Today's match ended as one of the typically disappointing Liverpool games fans have come to nearly expect against smaller sides such as Burnley.

With last weekend's 5-0 thrashing at Manchester City to also consider, Klopp admitted that he was disappointed with the ways things have fallen for his team since the September global break.

Burnley, of course, have already won 3-2 away at Chelsea this season.

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is training with Burnley after Tom Heaton's horrific injury against Crystal Palace last weekend.

"I'm not saying they didn't before, but we understood the mistakes we had made in the previous three games and knew that conceding that amount of goals was not good enough".

Philippe Coutinho started for the first time since he was denied a move to Barcelona.

Dominic Solanke hit the crossbar late on and Pope turned in a top display in-between the sticks, but Liverpool cannot continue to dominate games to such an extent yet look back at defensive blunders and what could have been.

Miscommunication between Klavan and Can led to a Burnley corner.

It's fantastic just how much Deja vu one football team can cause but once again Liverpool pulled out their usual trick.

"He needs rhythm", Klopp said.
