Jurgen Klopp gave a tense interview following the 1-1 draw with Burnley, which actually saw reactionary Liverpool fans write off our season after seven games.
We’ve now not won in three, conceding eight goals in eight days.
In fairness, Liverpool had 35 shots today and virtually all of the ball, yet conceded in an incredibly sloppy manner to gift our opponents the lead – just as we did against Manchester City and Sevilla.
Before the international break, we seemed to have hit form, but since, we’ve been a shadow of the side that thrashed Arsenal 4-0.
Klopp has noted the positive performance, but bemoaned the failure to award Mo Salah a penalty – considering he probably had two not given.
“I’m not happy, I’m angry with the result but pleased with the performance,” he told the BBC Sport.
“It’s our fault. We were dominant, fantastic attitude. We played good, were fluent with seven changes. But only one goal.
“When you have shots on goal it’s not about their defending. Their keeper made a few outstanding saves. I’m not happy as when Solanke hit the bar I am sure it was a penalty.
“It’s the best we have played against Burnley since I have been in. In the past we didn’t feel good in the game. Today I saw fluid movements, passing between the lines, speed, crosses.
“We have to take the point and carry on. Philippe was a really good game. He had a little cramp at the end. We did not plan to take him off but we had to decide differently.”
All we can do is move on. We play Leicester twice in a row at the KP Stadium, first in the League Cup, then in the Premier League.
Expect more rotation, as Klopp tries to juggle his largely fit squad.
