Burnley hold on to draw with Liverpool

Burnley hold on to draw with Liverpool

Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw against Burnley at Anfield on Saturday 16 September.

Liverpool have kept just two clean sheets in their eight games in all competitions so far this season and have a goal difference of zero in the Premier League, compared to plus ten for Manchester United and plus 14 for Manchester City.

After differing results at the weekend, Liverpool and Burnley will face off in a match both will see as an opportunity to take three points.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admitted he was "angry with the result but pleased with the performance" after Burnley frustrated his side, with the Reds racking up 35 efforts at goal to the Clarets' five. This made a lot of his shots appear as if they're passed directly to the keeper, as was the case against Manchester City as well.

There was a roll-call of former title-winners and mosaics around the ground to mark the 125th anniversary of Liverpool's first ever game, against Rotherham Town, but there was precious little in the present to celebrate for J├╝rgen Klopp.

Greg Olsen OUT indefinitely with a broken foot
Fantasy Impact Olsen originally left the game with a foot injury and was probable to return, but he was eventually ruled out. The Bills' defense contained Cam Newton and Company, to the tune of six sacks for (-50) yards, allowing just 3 field goals.

Liverpool have had their troubles at breaking down deep defences, but most of those problems have come away from home.

The defending continues to undermine everything. They have a wealth of talent at Liverpool so he is going to be limited with chances.

Fortunately for the home supporters, they only had to wait three minutes to draw level with the most simple of goals as an Emre Can pass, from well inside his own half, dropped invitingly for Salah. With Matip and Dejan Lovren distracted by Chris Wood, Scott Arfield could meet Robbie Brady's header and finish in style. Left badly exposed for the goal, but he's no doubt used to that by now.

Goalkeeper Nick Pope produced superb stops to deny Daniel Sturridge and Trent Alexander-Arnold with Dominic Solanke hitting the bar.

"I think Coutinho had a really good game, and a big impact on the game", said Klopp.

A second for the hosts looked a matter of when rather than if, but it never did arrive.

The Burnley draw did not go down well with the fans and Can's display received a mixed reaction. Going forward he was positive and assured, and went close to scoring late on but dragged his shot just wide. Nearly created a late victor with a fine run and terrific cross to the back post, but Alexander-Arnold's shot was well saved by the keeper.

Philippe Coutinho admits he was keen to join Barcelona. You would be really surprised.

Burnley have made a promising start to the season under manager Sean Dyche.

"What I see from all the questions, you start too early coming back to these things".

After the break, however, Liverpool never found a way to break the deadlock.
