Salah could have scored more this season - Jurgen Klopp

James Milner

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has suggested that his players did not receive enough protection in Wednesday's Premier League fixture at Burnley.

"There were a lot of situations, challenges".

He said: "I'm pretty sure I don't make a lot of friends, but that's not my job".

Jack Cork gave Burnley the lead early in the second half before Liverpool hit back with goals from James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Liverpool's Joe Gomez receives medical attention after sustaining an injury during the match against Burnley at Turf Moor in Burnley December 5, 2018.

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. "Just be careful. Sliding six or seven yards to win the ball, these times are over and somebody needs to tell you to stop doing it".

"I thought some of the timing of the challenges were superb". If there was no rule against it we, as managers, would constantly celebrate on the pitch and you would say "that's nice" (and) the whole bench would run there. Burnley lacked the ball for the most part, having to make do with only around a quarter of first-half possession, and with Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood failing to find each other when opportunities arose they presented little threat to Liverpool's goal.

Liverpool fell behind but within 15 minutes they were in front, Van Dijk playing a key role in their victor. You've got to put a marker on the game - not only with good tackles, but also with good play.

Liverpool's German head coach utilised his squad to make seven changes from the side that clinched a dramatic stoppage-time Merseyside derby victory over Everton.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been fined £8,000 after admitting a Football Association (FA) charge of improper conduct concerning his celebration of Divock Origi's victor in the Merseyside derby. Second half, one-two with Mo [Salah], good finish, bit lucky for Burnley.
