Coutinho returns but Liverpool frustrated by Burnley

After a unremarkable spell at Chelsea, Salah has returned to the Premier League with Liverpool and taken the league by storm.

"They weren't brilliant chances for the amount of possession we had".

Three thoughts on Liverpool 1-1 Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

"You know they're going to have some efforts but if you keep them as far out as we kept them, as in distance from the goal, you know the stats say it's much harder to score from 30 yards than it is from six".

Scott Arfield put the Clarets ahead after 27 minutes with a neat finish, before Livepool then levelled matters through Mohamed Salah just three minutes later.

Speaking to Robbie Savage and George Riley on 606, Frank fumed: "We've got one of the biggest circuses at Anfield at this moment, at Liverpool football club, and the biggest clown of the lot is Jurgen Klopp".

Philippe Coutinho makes his first start of the season for Liverpool in Saturday's hosting of Burnley.

It has been a tough week for Liverpool, who were flogged 5-0 by Manchester City a week ago before being held by Sevilla.

Coutinho & Sturridge start against Burnley
You can not create in each situation a finishing situation, but we did it absolutely often enough. Klopp explained: "I'm not happy, I'm angry with the result but pleased with the performance".

There's very little doubt that the Reds missed Sadio Mane but they would have been buoyed by the return of Phillipe Coutinho to the starting line-up. But from his point of view it will be great for him to get some club football under his belt going into the worldwide games.

The Egyptian showed neat control and a touch to take his marker Stephen Ward out of the game before driving an unstoppable finish past Nick Pope, the goalkeeper making his first Premier League start in the absence of injured England worldwide Tom Heaton.

He approached East after the match, and said: "I'm not too happy with the situation when Dominic Solanke hit the bar". We played good, were fluent with seven changes, but only one goal.

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

Burnley were close to departing Anfield with maximum points as they had two headers cleared off the line in a period that saw Matip chastise Klavan for failing to communicate as the Estonian unnecessarily went for the same ball as Can.

It's incredible just how much Deja vu one football team can cause but once again Liverpool pulled out their usual trick.

There is also the issue of extra games this season for Klopp to address and in doing so he will need to rotate certain members of his squad but therein lies a great problem for the German tactician.
