Liverpool 1 Burnley 1

Liverpool 1 Burnley 1

Jurgen Klopp bemoaned Liverpool's "strange" and "wrong" 1-1 draw with Burnley at Anfield on Saturday, having seen his side fail to convert a dominant performance into three points.

Mohamed Salah's fifth goal of the season, and his fourth in succession at Anfield, quickly restored parity.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised Burnley boss Sean Dyche for the work he has done with the club - claiming that the way he has the Clarets organised makes it very hard to play against.

There was so much composure about his finish - it was the type of goal that will only ever be scored by a top player.

"We have quality and now we have to use this quality consistently, that should be the plan", said Klopp. We didn't win all of them and we lost one [to a] really high [score], but everyone who was there [saw it was a] odd game - it was not that we performed from the first second like you would imagine when somebody loses 5-0.

It was expected for the Eagles to dominate possession and have a distinct territorial advantage, but Burnley stood strong and smothered the Palace attacks which saw 23 shots attempted but over half of them charged down.

He is fantastic and is the right man for the club, but Klopp does need to change something. Philippe was a really good game.

United Kingdom terror threat level raised to critical
Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the blast, saying a " detachment " from its terror group was responsible. Prime Minister Theresa May has raised the threat level to critical , meaning another attack is expected imminently.

"We created a finishing situation often enough, it could have been more often".

Burnley are one goal better off than Liverpool in seventh place in the table after beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and enjoying draws with Tottenham and Liverpool. "This is where we have to improve".

"We still had the chance to score but unfortunately we hit the crossbar". In terms of football we never really played to the best of our abilities, but to get a point here is special and just shows the mentality has completely switched.

"Unfortunately, I still don't feel any positivity in this moment. For me, that is the No.1", explained the German manager.

"Even at start of the year when the fixtures came out, everyone thought, 'Those first five are daunting ', but we've taken that challenge on and we've got four points from the first two so we go to Anfield full of confidence". It's not going to happen. Well, that theory proved to be what cost the Reds their maiden Premier League title, so one should not fool themselves.

"It's nearly subliminal at times".

However this weekend was far less of an anomaly, in fact it was the complete status quo as Liverpool failed to beat a team most people would expect them to beat.
