Jurgen Klopp angry with Liverpool's performance in draw with Burnley

It finished 1-1, Liverpool dropping a precious two points, and Houghton admits he was expecting much more from Klopp's side.

Liverpool were held as they failed make their dominance count, having had 35 shots and over 70 percent of possession.

The Reds' star playmaker returned to the starting XI in today's game with Burnley at Anfield.

The hosts quickly managed to regather shortly after via Mohamed Salah, but the scoreline remained unchanged with the result seeing Burnley jump past Liverpool in the Premier League standings.

Scott Arfield gave the Clarets a lead in the 27th minute with a fine finish which left Simon Mignolet stranded between the posts.

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope said: "We were really resilient and defended really well".

The Brazilian, who came off the bench in the 2-2 Champions League draw against Sevilla to a thunderous cheer from the Anfield crowd, will look to thwart the obstructive approach of Sean Dyche's side from midfield. The set piece was fed into the Liverpool box and was met by defender Ben Mee who thought he had scored only to have his header cleared off the line.

Burnley, who could even have poached a late victor through Ben Mee, got an unexpected point to add to the four they secured at Chelsea and Tottenham. But from his point of view it will be great for him to get some club football under his belt going into the global games. The Egypt global read the delivery perfectly, unlike Ward and Ben Mee who backed off and allowed Salah to control inside the penalty area and steer a fine low finish beyond Burnley's stand-in goalkeeper Nick Pope.

"I'm sure it was a penalty on Mo Salah", he said.

"I'm not saying they didn't before, but we understood the mistakes we had made in the previous three games and knew that conceding that amount of goals was not good enough". In the past we didn't feel good in the game.

Philippe Coutinho made his first competitive appearance for Liverpool this season after coming on as a second-half substitute against Sevilla on Wednesday. Hence it is predicted that Liverpool has more chance to win this match.

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.

Dominic Solanke hit the crossbar late on and Pope turned in a top display in-between the sticks, but Liverpool cannot continue to dominate games to such an extent yet look back at defensive blunders and what could have been.
