Jurgen Klopp watched his Liverpool side dominate the game against Burnley at Anfield on Sunday, but only come away with a point on a frustrating afternoon for the Reds.

Klopp gave Philippe Coutinho his first start of the season, and the Brazilian impressed as the hosts mustered a total of 35 shots in the game.

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.

Liverpool got a deserved equaliser just three minutes later, with in-form winger Mohamed Salah scoring after smart control in the box.

That goal should have set the Merseysiders on their way to victory.

However, with Nick Pope in fine form between the posts for the Clarets, Liverpool struggled to turn their dominance into goals.

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

However, at the other end, Ben Mee went close as the visitors themselves came close to pulling off a shock victory.

The contest would end all-square, with Klopp claiming after the game that he was “angry with the result but pleased with the performance”.

While the Reds were frustrated in attack, their backline continues to look somewhat unconvincing, which may well hinder their chances of a genuine title tilt this season.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche, on the other hand, will be pleased with another impressive display from his charges.
