Title-chaser Liverpool comes from behind to sink Burnley

The second half was a ideal reaction and I am really, really happy about the three points.

Although a couple of tackles were borderline - for instance, when Phil Bardsley appeared to go over the top of the ball on Alberto Moreno - in the main Burnley just made sure they did not back out of any challenges and it had the desired effect as Liverpool could not settle.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino celebrates scoring his side's second goal of the game with team-mate Virgil van Dijk, during their English Premier League soccer match at Turf Moor in Burnley, England, Wednesday Dec. 5, 2018.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane might miss the contest because the foot he cut Sunday during the Reds' win over Everton required stitches.

At his post-match press conference, the manager explained the subtle changes during the interval which allowed Liverpool to be more expansive en route to their 12th win in 15 league matches. You get the ball, nice, but it's like bowling. You've got to win the ball, you've got to challenge against these boys. I thought we were effective.




"The main thing for me was the idea of getting back to what we're about, there were signs of that and a lot of good individual performances". But we've got to get back to being "us".

"The shape was really good tonight, the energy and endeavour and also the will to win because that was there right the way through the last breath". "Even in the first half when Naby had the ball something changed a bit", Klopp added.

Now though, the player himself has insisted that he has no reason to try and quit Liverpool FC. Hendo shouldn't be involved in that - he had to protect all the runners. I think his blocked shot was the biggest chance we had in the first half, I'm not 100 per cent sure but at least it looked like a proper chance; Burnley blocked it.

Liverpool started the second-half with greater goal, and Daniel Sturridge forced a good save from Hart with a powerful effort from the edge of the area which was destined for the bottom corner.

Keita, making his first league start since mid-September, looked their biggest threat in the final third but there were few other players on his wavelength.
