  • Burnley 1 Liverpool 3: Firmino and Shaqiri complete comeback

Liverpool will look to keep pace with Man City atop the Premier League standings on Wednesday, facing Burnley.

Klopp became embroiled in a heated discussion with Sean Dyche on the field after the game, before pleading for more protection after Gomez suffered a nasty ankle injury.

Klopp's decision to make seven changes from the Merseyside derby victory over Everton nearly backfired until goals from James Milner, substitute Roberto Firmino with his first touch, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed a comeback win after Jack Cork had given the hosts the lead early in the second-half.

Xherdan Shaqiri added a third in stoppage time to ensure Liverpool moved to 39 points from 15 league games, a club record, but Klopp was frustrated by what he deemed an overly physical Burnley approach.

Burnley continued to ask questions of the Liverpool defence and found an opener soon after the restart when Jack Cork poked home from very close range after Allison had turned away to rapid-fire efforts from James Tarkowski and Ashley Barnes.

"Joe is injured and probably not only a little bit", he said. We don't know at the moment and we have to see tomorrow.

Seven changes seemed a surprise from the Liverpool boss, however the vast majority of Premier League teams did make rotation the mid-week keyword.

Despite Meng's arrest the same day that deal was announced, Beijing officials were standing by the agreement on Thursday. Ren responded: "We must not bind ourselves up just because the U.S.is attacking us".


"I said after the first challenge, I don't know who did it, a sliding tackle from six/seven yards, getting the ball, everybody likes it, I said to the ref "it's no foul but please tell them you can not do that".

"They wanted to be aggressive", Klopp told a news conference. You try something, and you need someone to say: 'Be careful'. I know that. It's part of football but it lead to the situation. Somebody has to tell you to stop doing it, make two more steps and make a normal challenge.

Liverpool's Joe Gomez receives medical attention after sustaining an injury during the match against Burnley at Turf Moor in Burnley December 5, 2018.

Burnley have struggled to put together a 45-minute performance, never mind 90, but made Liverpool sweat, Ben Mee forcing a stunning save from Allisson late on, as Liverpool broke to make it 3-1 - despite the ball having gone out of play for what should have been a Burnley corner: "We kept going right to the death, another sign of the strong jaw and mentality, particularly against a side with their quality".

Prizes include, a trip to Old Trafford to watch Man United take on Liverpool in the Premier League, tickets to Ireland's home games in the Six Nations, All Ireland football and hurling final tickets and much more.

"The referees have to make sure it doesn't happen".
