Defence still Liverpool's Achilles heel, admits Klopp

17 September 2017

Scott Arfield opened the scoring for Burnley on 26 minutes, but Mo Salah took just four minutes to level up the scores with a well-taken goal from the edge of the box.

This time it was Trent Alexander-Arnold's abject failure to beat Stephen Ward and worsened by Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip's ensuing miscommunication.

The Clarets batted back wave upon wave of intricate Liverpool attacks.

Philippe Coutinho is set to start his first Liverpool game this season when the Reds take on Burnley in the Premier League, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp lamented Liverpool's inability to come away with all the three points.

"It is not that we ignore it - I said if there would have been a solution out there we would have done it".

After an absolutely soul-crushing 5-0 defeat to Manchester City last weekend and another disappointing game against Sevilla in the mid-week Champions League match, the home crowd at Anfield was itching for a positive effort. We made seven changes and still played this type of football - no one should take this for granted.

"Raggy was there and the ball bounced in the wrong direction and Robbo he knows he could see Arfield quicker".

Derrick Henry (2013-15) is sixth with 45. "Jalen played an outstanding game today, run and pass", Alabama coach Nick Saban said. On the defensive side of the ball, junior Keith Holcombeled the way with a career-high nine total tackles and a pass breakup.

Liverpool hadn't lost at home against Burnley for over 40 years entering today's game. Our shape was good and Popey was excellent in goal. We thought that would be important.

On the half hour, Emre Can's ball to Salah was met with the Egyptian's chest. That in and of itself is another familiar theme, but just because Liverpool is in a rut, it doesn't mean that I have to fall in to it with them; it's too early in the season for that, isn't it?

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. They made seven changes, players who have been brought in for absolute fortunes, players on the bench who have come in for £35m.

And with Coutinho failing to find top form following his summer saga surrounding a move to Barcelona, Klopp says he needs time.

The Florida Health Care Association called the deaths a "profound tragedy within the larger tragedy of Hurricane Irma ". He's also talking about hurricane recovery efforts in Florida, and says authorities there have done an "A-plus job".

The Brazilian worldwide Coutinho had been linked with a move to Barcelona during the summer and the Catalan giants reportedly had a number of bids rejected for the player, including one that was worth £138 million.
