Liverpool sees familiar failings as Burnley deny Jurgen Klopp's men at Anfield

Burnley lay just one place above Liverpool in 7th by virtue of a +1 better goal difference.

Burnley sounded a note of caution on a rare counter-attack when Jack Cork's superb challenge set up Brady for a shot which Simon Mignolet needed two attempts to catch.

The Burnley boss, as well as goalkeeping coach Billy Mercer, have seen Pope take strides in his game since joining from Charlton in the summer of 2016, despite limited action on the pitch. Nick Pope, on his first appearance in the Premier League, going on to make 8 saves.

Luckily for Liverpool, Philippe Coutinho could be fit for his first start of the season which is timely considering Mané's absence. Usually, the Brazilian bends his strikes in with more finesse and quality but last night he was way off the mark.

And despite the German's protestations, the Clarets provided more evidence for the case against the defence.

The big news is that Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been dropped to the bench.

Having said that, everything was not off for the playmaker.

McConnell said he spoke with Suu Kyi by phone on Wednesday and she repeated her call for "peace and reconciliation" in strife-torn Rakhine state.

Dominic Solanke had Liverpool's best chance to win the game late on, but his instinctive volley ricocheted off the crossbar, and Jurgen Klopp's men had to settle for a point.

The man of the night.

Heaton underwent successful surgery on Wednesday after dislocating a shoulder in last Sunday's win over Crystal Palace.

"He's been working with some top-class keepers", added Dyche. The 25-year-old's willingness to apply the dark arts to Burnley's game - time-wasting with his goal kicks after barely 15 minutes on the clock - was vital to the Clarets earning a point. Some of the football played was terrific, but they were wasteful in front of goal and suspect at the back. Pope was solid and kept out everything brilliantly apart from Mohamed Salah's goal. Chris Wood managed to get in the middle of the two Liverpool players and Klavan ended up on the ground while the game was stopped. "We thought that might be a weak link aerially on the right back".

It has been a tough week for Liverpool, who were flogged 5-0 by Manchester City a week ago before being held by Sevilla.

Liverpool dominated possession early and often, cutting off Burnley passes at ease and pushing their opponents back.

"He should be ready (to start)", Klopp said, as reported by Firstpost.
