They were unlucky, perhaps, not to see a late flurry of chances produce a winning goal, but by the final whistle, Anfield regulars were left asking the usual questions.

Liverpool were dominant against Burnley at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday but could only earn a 1-1 draw.

"You know what Burnley is about - the team, the squad, what the manager asks of you, it is a hard-working side and they expect that of their players and I am sure as long as you give that for the team, the fans will see that and appreciate it".

Coutinho is in the starting XI for Saturday's match with Burnley.

Sean Dyche's side nearly claimed all three points as they managed to gain some territory late on, with Ben Mee seeing powerful headers from consecutive corners cleared off the line in the final 10 minutes, first by Matip, then goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. But from his point of view it will be great for him to get some club football under his belt going into the worldwide games.

It has been a tough week for Liverpool, who were flogged 5-0 by Manchester City a week ago before being held by Sevilla. In the last five matches of Burnley, they have won three matches, lost one match and another match ended in a draw.

There was also a full Premier League debut for Nick Pope in goal in place of the injured Tom Heaton, with Pope's first top-flight start coming against the backdrop of the Kop as Liverpool attacked their favourite end before the break.

Sam Vokes feels his Wales colleague Ben Woodburn is ready for regular Premier League football with Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp ponders what to do without Sadio Mane against Burnley.

"We've got some great confidence from the away games we've had recently and the points we've picked up", Vokes added.

Klopp's team dominated against Sean Dyche's side but another cheap goal against and another profligate display despite having 35 shots made it a third game without a win in all competitions for Liverpool.

Chance after chance fell Liverpool's way - headers going narrowly wide.

"A lot of parts of the game I was really happy with". Burnley fired a ball into the box and Klavan and Matip both went for the same header. We played good, were fluent with seven changes [from the Sevilla game].

Klopp insisted he is optimistic about his side's chances of taking points from a hard run of games, saying: "Now we go to Leicester, Leicester again, then we go to Moscow and then Newcastle and if we can keep the shape and improve the other things, I think everybody has seen already we can be really strong".
