Liverpool held by stubborn Burnley

Liverpool pushed for the victor but, for all of Coutinho's brilliance, they lacked the cutting edge in the absence of the suspended Sadio Mane.

Pope, relatively comfortable in the first half, looked less so in spilling Can's shot from the edge of area and the goalkeeper, jeered throughout the first half by Liverpool supporters for time wasting, was finally booked for the offence on 54 minutes.

However Ben Mee could have won the game for Burnley in the closing stages, as he had a header cleared off the line by Joel Matip, then another attempt well saved by Mignolet.

Dyche said Burnley deliberately targeted Alexander-Arnold in the air and while that tactic paid dividends they did not allow Liverpool a monopoly on weak defending against a long ball. It also started a wave of confidence for Liverpool as they definitively gained the upper hand in the contest.

Expecting a win, though, Anfield gradually became more irritated and frustrated in the second half - much to the annoyance of Klopp, who became more agitated with the collective groans from the stands.

It's been a great start to the season for Burnley and they now sit seventh in the table after picking up points away to Chelsea and Tottenham already. "We need to enjoy the job, because that's what Burnley are doing".

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is hopeful Hendrick will be fit to play a part in the Clarets' clash on Merseyside after he took a full part in training on Thursday. But the rest was real Champions League football against a real strong side.

Teams that challenge for the title - or at the very least are in the mixer - turn these draws in to wins and though it wasn't for a lack of trying, we just weren't able to come up with the goods. "We played good, were fluent with seven changes, but only one goal", Klopp said in his post-match press conference. "But only one goal".

Dyche said he was delighted with the point against a home side who peppered their goal with 35 shots on target.

Late on, sub Dominic Solanke hit the frame of the goal as Liverpool pushed for that elusive victor.

"He trained outstandingly in the few sessions we've had together since he was back". The German has come under the gun for not drafting in defensive reinforcements this summer, but for all the deflecting, he's right in stressing that one player isn't going to fix our problems.

The end result of 1-1 saw the Clarets take another point.
