Burnley's Scottish-born Canadian midfielder Scott Arfield (2nd L) celebrates with teammates after scoring the opening goal. But what followed was more a failure of Klopp's attack to break down Burnley's determined defence as they finished with 35 shots but just nine on target.

Philippe Coutinho is set to start his first Liverpool game this season when the Reds take on Burnley in the Premier League, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

But even manager Sean Dyche could not have expected such a dramatic turnaround with the first three trips yielding a win at Chelsea followed by draws at Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool. Hopefully I have added that to my game. We made seven changes but it was still really fluent, it looked like proper football - offensive football, dominant football, possession football how it should be.

Liverpool hadn't lost at home against Burnley for over 40 years entering today's game. A good goal for them.

"We have still space for improvement, that was clear before the season, but we could have won pretty much all our games so far when you think about the performance". It also started a wave of confidence for Liverpool as they definitively gained the upper hand in the contest.

It was, as Tarkowski, linked up with Brady who headed across the edge of the box, helped by a Chris Wood touch onto an unmarked Arfield who eased the ball past some questionable defending to steer the ball past Simon Mignolet. Emre Can created a swift equaliser with a measured ball over the top from just inside his own half.

This will be Liverpool's first of three matches without Sadio Mané as he serves a ban following a red card against Manchester City.

Klopp had originally wanted Coutinho to stay on the pitch and signalled for Roberto Firmino and James Milner to be withdrawn for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dominic Solanke. The latter went close to obliging when he volleyed against the bar from close range after Alexander-Arnold's cross deflected into his path. Klopp claimed a penalty for a challenge on Salah in the build-up to Solanke's chance while Dyche credited Pope with a vital save.

"We'll speak to him accordingly", Dyche said of Lindegaard.

"I still believe in the long-term, these players will pick themselves up from where they have been knocked down to", he told Sky Sports.
