Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has stuck the knife into the concept of consistent team selection yet again by making seven changes for today's Premier League clash with Burnley. Much has been said about how his finishing still needs work but last night, he was truly one of Liverpool's best. Why we feel so disappointed or frustrated is because we see what this team can do.
"They made seven changes today for players who they brought in for absolute fortunes".
Within two minutes of Liverpool's trip to Turf Moor last August the wait was over as Vokes turned and fired beyond Simon Mignolet from the edge of the area, setting Burnley on their way to a 2-0 win over the Reds.
"It feels odd, it feels wrong but it is a fact we drew", said Klopp.
"It is not that we ignore it - I said if there would have been a solution out there we would have done it". "We were dominant, fantastic attitude". You don't finish the situations. It was a very disciplined performance from the opponent but also disciplined from my side. "This is where we have to improve".
There was a roll-call of former title-winners and mosaics around the ground to mark the 125th anniversary of Liverpool's first ever game, against Rotherham Town, but there was precious little in the present to celebrate for Jürgen Klopp.
"Over the years here we have had a few partnerships and they have worked well and I think Chris Wood is a fantastic talent", he said.
"But it is 1-1, I'm not happy about it because of the performance".
Klopp lamented Liverpool's inability to come away with all the three points. "We have found our game, we can make short passes, and we have a lot of energy from our full backs".
"Our gameplan wasn't to come here and keep the ball all afternoon - it isn't going to happen".
City remained in rampant form as it ended Watford's unbeaten start to the English Premier League with a resounding 6-0 victory at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
"It's nearly subliminal at times".
Burnley have been leading Premier League matches for a combined 153 minutes this season, only Chelsea (172) have been in a winning position for longer so far in 2017-18.
"But we're not naive".
