Liverpool equalised nearly immediately as Mohamed Salah maintained his excellent goal-scoring form with another fine finish from the edge of the area to make it 1-1 in the 30th minute.

Klopp's side hit back immediately as Emre Can found Mohamed Salah who controlled and slotted the ball past Nick Pope with relative ease.

Scott Arfield scored his first goal in 11 months for Sean Dyche's men.

After the break, Pope denied Livepool on several occasions, including one point-blank save from Dominic Solanke, which he pushed onto the bar.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that the club only have themselves to blame after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley in the Premier League at Anfield on Saturday.

Klopp insisted he is optimistic about his side's chances of taking points from a hard run of games, saying: "Now we go to Leicester, Leicester again, then we go to Moscow and then Newcastle and if we can keep the shape and improve the other things, I think everybody has seen already we can be really strong". Another advantage will be the fact they are playing at Anfield.

"It's got a big new stand now and is a great place to go to and play".

Ragnar Klavan and Matip paired up at the back and Staunton was left unhappy with defending from corners.

Burnley broke their club record to sign Chris Wood this summer and so far he has delivered for them.

Meanwhile Liverpool U19 boss Steven Gerrard was full of praise for his side after their 4-0 UEFA Youth League win against the Spaniards.

While one might also consider that the Burnley defence was extraordinarily strong and sturdy, the fact that Coutinho failed to trouble them much can not be ignored.

Teenage fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold came close early, dragging an effort wide before seeing a teasing cross blocked by Robbie Brady. A match that only ended up feeling like a rerun of matches Liverpool fans have already seen.

Speaking to ESPN, the 25-year-old has admitted he wanted to make the switch but is now moving on from the disappointment. Sturridge cuts inside, rides a couple of challenges before unleashing a shot from the edge of the area and Pope does well to parry it to safety.

Liverpool dominated the game.

"More options, that's all good".
