A string of good performances so far this season sees Burnley as high as 7th, including impressive results against Spurs (1-1) and Chelsea (3-2). We made seven changes but we were still really fluent, offensive football, dominant football.

Late on, sub Dominic Solanke hit the frame of the goal as Liverpool pushed for that elusive victor. Only Emre Can, Joel Matip, Roberto Firmino and Salah kept their place.

Dropping out of the team are defenders Joe Gomez, who was sent off versus Sevilla, Alberto Moreno and the injured Dejan Lovren, who has picked up a back problem.

Within minutes of starting it looked like this would be tested.

Coutinho had a busy day with 96 touches in all, a total surpassed only by centre-back Ragnar Klavan for the Reds.

Fortunately their lead didn't last long. He controlled the ball - spun around and fired in another goal to add to his burgeoning collection.

Meanwhile Liverpool U19 boss Steven Gerrard was full of praise for his side after their 4-0 UEFA Youth League win against the Spaniards.

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.

And with the likes of Jordan Henderson, Alberto Moreno, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Dominic Solanke and Gigi Wijanldum on the bench, Klopp waited until there were 10 minutes left to make his first sub.

Liverpool disappointed yet again after the thrashing at Manchester City with a 1-1 draw against Burnley at home on Saturday afternoon. Salah appears to be fouled inside the box by Mee but play continues and the loose ball is picked up by Alexander-Arnold who tees up Solanke but the forward strikes the crossbar from four yards out. Liverpool's vulnerabilities at the back nearly exposed as Mee rises highest to meet a corner delivery, but sees his header cleared off the line by Alexander-Arnold!

It's not been a great week for the reds but they have to pick themselves up.

Burnley, who could even have poached a late victor through Ben Mee, got an unexpected point to add to the four they secured at Chelsea and Tottenham.
