Klopp frustrated as Burnley end Liverpool’s home run

first_img “The ref let all these challenges today happen. When the ball comes in the box, Burnley are always dangerous. “They stayed completely in the game, they just did what they wanted to do. It is frustrating because we should have scored much earlier.” Liverpool can still break Manchester City’s record points haul of 100 two seasons ago, but will now need to win all three of their remaining matches against Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle. Klopp has insisted he is not looking to rewrite the record books, but there was no sign of the German easing up with a first title in 30 years long since won. Robertson and Sadio Mane were recalled from the side that won 3-1 at Brighton on Wednesday with only injured captain Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold missing from Klopp’s strongest XI. Loading… But the Reds were made to pay for a host of missed chances when Jay Rodriguez’s fine finish earned a point to further Burnley’s late push for a place in Europe next season. “We left the door open, we didn’t close it. We should have scored two, three, four goals at least,” said Klopp, who was also irked by referee David Coote’s lenient attitude to Burnley’s physical approach. Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope (left) kept Liverpool at baySalah’s double in midweek kept him in the running for a third Golden Boot in as many seasons at Liverpool and only Nick Pope in the Burnley goal prevented the Egyptian closing in on Jamie Vardy at the top of the scoring charts.Pope turned a fiercely struck Salah volley over before spreading himself well to deny Liverpool’s top scorer in another one-on-one.The opening goal came from a much more unlikely source as Fabinho picked out Robertson’s run and the Scotland captain looped a header into the far corner for his first goal since November.Pope and Liverpool’s Alisson Becker are battling for the Golden Glove and the England international showed why he is in the lead with 14 clean sheets as he kept his side in the game once more before half-time to turn Mane’s powerful shot over the bar.Andy Robertson (left)opened the scoring for Liverpool against BurnleyChances continued to come and go for the hosts after the break. Remarkably, despite Liverpool’s home form, their number nine is still yet to score at Anfield in the league this season as Roberto Firmino hit the post to extend his wait for a home goal.Liverpool’s profligacy was punished 21 minutes from time when Rodriguez’s brilliant finish from James Tarkowski’s knock-down beat Alisson from the edge of the area.Burnley then had the best chance to win the game in the final stages as Alisson flapped at another set-piece and the ball fell for substitute Johann Berg Gudmundsson, who hit the crossbar.“That would be pushing it a bit,” admitted Burnley boss Sean Dyche had his side snatched victory.“Forget there is no one here. It’s still very difficult to come here against sides like that.center_img Read Also: Video: The moment Mourinho walks out of virtual press conference“They don’t give you a breather.

Andy Robertson’s first-half header had the champions on course to maintain their perfect home record this season and close in on a record points tally for the English top flight.last_img read more
