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

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

Scott Arfield gave Burnley the lead against the run of play but Liverpool levelled just three minutes later through Mohamed Salah.

The fearsome trident of Mané, Firminho and Salah proved too much for Sevilla who failed to contain the threat posed by the trio who had already scored eleven goals between them prior to the game.

Liverpool had an array of efforts to try to win it as they dominated, but the Reds could even have lost after Joel Matip was forced to clear a Ben Mee header off the line.

The result means Burnley stay unbeaten away from home so far this season following victory at Chelsea on the opening day of the season and a draw at Tottenham.

"We made seven changes but it was still really fluent, it looked like proper football - offensive football, dominant football, possession football how it should be".

The contest would end all-square, with Klopp claiming after the game that he was "angry with the result but pleased with the performance". We can change the system; we can do a lot of things.

It's hard for a manager to do anything about the type of errors that led to Scott Arfield's opening goal, but if there is one criticism it's that Klopp possibly should have made his substitutions earlier.

Wood, who justified his club record signing by scoring in each of his first two EPL matches for Burnley, didn't manage a shot on goal at Anfield. Their keeper made a few outstanding saves. We didn't win all of them and we lost one [to a] really high [score], but everyone who was there [saw it was a] unusual game - it was not that we performed from the first second like you would imagine when somebody loses 5-0.

"Now we have to use this quality consistently".

Liverpool then squandered countless good attacking positions as Burnley defended stoutly against a constant stream of forays forward from the hosts.

It was a tough chance for the 20-year-old, as the ball came to him at an awkward angle, and it turned out to be Liverpool's final genuine opportunity to take all three points from the match.

"On the bench tonight, you had Sturridge, Coutinho and Oxlade-Chamberlain - I'm not sure why he was bought", Hamann told RTE Sport after Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Sevilla on Wednesday night.
