Jurgen Klopp explains why he took Philippe Coutinho off against Burnley

Klopp admitted it would have "been typical" for Liverpool had they scored from either or both of those chances and that is the problem - being so commanding without killing off a game is too much of a distinctive trait for the Merseysiders.

Liverpool's 125th anniversary celebrations fell flat at Anfield where they completed a disappointing week by drawing 1-1 with Burnley in the Premier League yesterday.

The visitors took the lead when Scott Arfield found the net in the first half but Mohamed Salah equalised just moments after.

"I'm not happy, I'm angry with the result but pleased with the performance", said Klopp.

"It's the best we have played against Burnley since I have been in. Obviously we have quality and now we have to use this quality consistently, that should be the plan".

Sekope Kepu was Australia's other tryscorer, burrowing over in the 49th minute to spark the dominant second half. Fly-half Bernard Foley kicked six conversions and a penalty goal for 15 points.

Countless chances went begging for Liverpool in the second period, as Pope was called into action on nice occasions. "We were dominant, fantastic attitude". You don't finish the situations. "This is where we have to improve".

Having appeared to announce itself as a potential title contender with a 4-0 victory over Arsenal in late August, Liverpool has slipped to eighth on the table, and Klopp will be concerned as to how his side will cope without Mane at Leicester in a week.

Arfield - on the scoresheet for the first time since hitting a dramatic victor against Everton 11 months ago - said: "In football this is an iconic British stadium so to score here is brilliant and on a personal note it was fantastic". I thought it was a penalty beforehand.

"That's a very important thing, so we have quite a good form or shape". I feel like I'm in some sort of Liverpool time loop and it never ends.

You could argue Pope should have done better for Salah's goal, but that could be considered harsh after a respectable performance in challenging circumstances.

Arizona and Arizona State can likely be bypassed for the conference championship, while OR and Utah have their own question marks. The Wolverines (3-0) didn't lead by more than three points until Peoples-Jones' touchdown early in the third quarter.

"We have to take the point and carry on". It's not going to happen.

Aiming to prevent the Liverpool forward from adding to his tally this weekend is the Premier League's newest goalkeeper.

"It's nearly subliminal at times".

Expecting a win, though, Anfield gradually became more irritated and frustrated in the second half - much to the annoyance of Klopp, who became more agitated with the collective groans from the stands.

"But we're not naive". As one of the only players to prove a real threat against Manchester City before his early substitution from the game, Salah has already shown his standard, but now has the challenge of maintaining this level for the remainder of the season.

It's also unclear if this sudden death will delay or halt production of the show. Police are reportedly struggling to figure out how or why Munoz was killed.
