Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp Lists Three Potential Options For Replacing Suspended Sadio Mane

Simon Mignolet will come back in having sat out the Sevilla game, while Philippe Coutinho should start, too.

And it was required after Burnley scored with their only shot of the first half.

Matches between Liverpool and Burnley tend to be low scoring affairs and I expect this to be no different.

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.

Klopp insisted he is optimistic about his side's chances of taking points from a hard run of games, saying: "Now we go to Leicester, Leicester again, then we go to Moscow and then Newcastle and if we can keep the shape and improve the other things, I think everybody has seen already we can be really strong". It also started a wave of confidence for Liverpool as they definitively gained the upper hand in the contest.

Philippe Coutinho could also be given more match time, whilst Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could start in central midfield.

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. The main measure is when you play, you've still got to see improvement on a daily basis and I think we have seen that.


SEAN Dyche believes Nick Pope has improved as a goalkeeper by training with his Clarets stars, but accepts that development is about to be put to the ultimate test.

"Very few teams will come here and dominate, we knew we would have to do the basics".

"Now we are an established Premier League side with many options and good quality options".

And whilst we're happy with the result - Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wasn't, saying he's angry.

"We made seven changes but we were still really fluent, (playing) offensive football, dominant football", said the German, after watching his side have 35 shots to their opponents' five and enjoy 71 per cent possession.

"We watched all of them 500 million times and, to cool the people down, what if the new player doesn't hit the first ball and he makes exactly the same mistake?" said Klopp. "But only one goal".

Maybe that's not at all warranted considering it's still early days, but the mistakes continues to pile up and cost us dearly. For keepers, they are constantly landing on their shoulders, so common-sensically it's even more reason to make sure it's 100 per cent right.
