Klopp: Liverpool could have won every game

And with the likes of Jordan Henderson, Alberto Moreno, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Dominic Solanke and Gigi Wijanldum on the bench, Klopp waited until there were 10 minutes left to make his first sub.

That means the two teams stay in the same place on the table - Burnley in 7th and Liverpool in 8th.

Klopp's frustration was in stark contrast to Dyche who, having seen his team collect just seven points away from home all last season, has now seen them garner five points from their first three away games - tricky visits to Chelsea, Tottenham and Anfield.

"I feel a lot more confident at this level", he said.

And from there, it was all Liverpool, but also no Liverpool.

Countless chances went begging for Liverpool in the second period, as Pope was called into action on nice occasions. Klavan and Matip at centre-back, though? Anfield aggressively pursued Southampton's Virgil van Dijk, but got derailed by a tapping up incident.

MF Philippe Coutinho, 6 - Always wanted the ball and never hid, but the Brazilian was hugely frustrating at times as too often he tried to force things with his final ball or shot.

Tarkowski thwarted Milner as he looked to volley goalwards, as it looked increasingly likely the Claret's defence would concede until Mee came agonisingly close to putting them ahead in the 80th minute with a lopping header nudge over the bar by Joel Matip.

But, despite peppering the Burnley goal, they couldn't find a way past Nick Pope.

"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.

"Coutinho did well. He needs rhythm and was getting better as the game went on", Klopp said. After the Reds gave up the opening goal to Sergio Aguero, Sadio Mane was shown a straight red for kicking City keeper Ederson in the face.

Feeling his oats a bit in the post-match press scrum, Dyche talked about his side's gameplan and how he exploited some key weaknesses in Liverpool's sqaud. Pope was solid and kept out everything brilliantly apart from Mohamed Salah's goal. Some of the football played was terrific, but they were wasteful in front of goal and suspect at the back.

"He should be ready (to start)", Klopp said, as reported by Firstpost.
