Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

"They had two headers after that", added Klopp. Burnley fired a ball into the box and Klavan and Matip both went for the same header. "Sometimes that's what you need, but I don't think we were good enough today".

Liverpool were outstanding in August. Klopp suffered his heaviest defeat to Manchester City. Liverpool continued to dominate and Burnley rediscovered their resilience to frustrate them.

With Liverpool's well known defensive softness, getting out to cover Brady and preventing him from causing problems down the flank will be an important area of the game. They lost (0-1) their second match against to West Bromwich Albion and they had a draw (1-1) with Tottenham Hotspur in a third game.

They had possession and pressure, chance after chance.

Burnley's surprise point came despite having to field a rookie goalkeeper following the recent injury to Tom Heaton who will be out for several months with a dislocated shoulder.

"When the moment of truth came, he made two excellent saves", said Burnley boss Sean Dyche.

That Salah has hit the ground running in terms of goals and assists is a feat magnified by his poor finishing in a Liverpool shirt.

The Egypt global made the £36.9 million move from the Serie A side in June, as the biggest signing of the Reds' summer.

He's started every single game of the campaign so far and has contributed one assist and a passing success rate of 87.9%, according to WhoScored.com.

Jurgen Klopp's frustrating start to the season continued as Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley at Anfield on Saturday, despite Mohamed Salah's fifth goal of the season. He had six efforts.

"Seven changes and playing this type of football, no one should take it for granted". He tried his luck but remains on 99 club goals. Most of the goals they conceded were after star man Sadio Mane was sent off, but they were already 1-0 down and being at the least marginally outplayed.

It was all too avoidable.

However it was Burnley who would open the scoring, with Scott Arfield firing past Simon Mignolet on 27 minutes afer some unconvincing defending from the hosts.

"We know it's tough coming to these places and we are willing to do the bits that are nitty gritty in the game", said Dyche.

And this week could have gone much better.
