Without Mane, Liverpool struggle to 1-1 vs Burnley in EPL

Without Mane, Liverpool struggle to 1-1 vs Burnley in EPL

Burnley create a goal from literally nothing after a long period of Liverpool dominance. He hit the ball ideal, it was not even that he needed a few touches.

Mohamed Salah was quick to restore parity for the Reds after Scott Arfield gave the visitors an unlikely lead at Anfield inside the first half an hour, but despite their domination of the contest from there on - with some 35 shots in all - Klopp's side were unable to find a victor.

With the captain out for several months after surgery this week Pope is set for an extended run in the side and his first start at this level will come at Anfield today against Liverpool.

Heaton joined northwest side Burnley in the summer of 2013 and had played every league game in each of his three seasons before the last term, when he only missed three. Receiving a long pass from Emre Can, with flawless control, Salah unleashed a strong shot that cannot be pushed by goalkeeper Nick Pope. The venue of the match is at Anfield, Liverpool. The Brazilian tried to force through a transfer to Barcelona but was unsuccessful and alienated himself from his team and fans little while doing it.

Within minutes of starting it looked like this would be tested.

Sergio Aguero scored a predatory hat trick and laid on an assist for Gabriel Jesus, while Nicolas Otamendi headed in, and Raheem Sterling added a late penalty.The victory took City to the top of the table, but Manchester United can join it on Sunday with a win over Everton. Errors at one end of the pitch and lack of ruthlessness at the other leaves them winless in their last three fixtures across all competitions.

Coutinho was expected to shoulder the burden in the suspended Mane's absence, but it was Salah who stepped up to lead Liverpool's front line. "We have options. Roberto [Firmino] already played left wing, Phil can play there, Alex [Oxlade-Chamberlain] can play there".

And only Salah found the net for Liverpool.

While many will no doubt focus on the defence, it was actually Liverpool's attack which really let them down on Saturday.

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.

"I certainly think it's beneficial, if we continue like we have over the years, as the group gets stronger, the keepers have to work harder", Dyche said.
