Liverpool goalscorer Milner: We showed great character for Burnley win

Then Alisson brilliantly clawed Mee's header away from the top corner in added time and Liverpool counter-attacked for Shaqiri to score before, at the final whistle, Klopp and Burnley boss Sean Dyche exchanged words.

Burnley had this specific plan, they wanted to be really aggressive. Naby made all the difference, I think his blocked shot was the biggest chance we had in the first half.

"Just try and get yourself ready for the next game, try to do your best and then after the season you will get judged, not during the season".

"Joe's injured and probably not only a little bit", said Klopp after the 3-1 win at Turf Moor.

The 21-year-old was tended to by medical staff before he was stretchered off the pitch with the injury, which the club say they will assess the seriousness of in the coming days.

Jack Cork's opener looked set to cause an upset, but goals from James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri ensured a valuable three points for Jurgen Klopp's side who can now go top of the table, temporarily at least, with a win at Bournemouth on Saturday.

"Since football is very intense here, I have to be very well prepared when the opportunity arises".

The visitors struggled to break down Burnley and it was the home side who came closest to breaking the deadlock, but a superb volley from Ashley Barnes late in the half was ruled out for offside. I thought we were effective. I told the ref he needed to calm it down because the danger of injury is always there and we had to make a substitution of an really important player for us.

"The main thing for me was the idea of getting back to what we're about, there were signs of that and a lot of good individual performances".

The Liverpool manager said: "I don't regret it in a way that it should not have happened". It's all good. I think he has scored seven so far in the league.

Liverpool's German head coach utilised his squad to make seven changes from the side that clinched a dramatic stoppage-time Merseyside derby victory over Everton.

"We controlled the game in a lot of moments, but in the moments where we allowed Burnley to make proper tackles, it didn't look that cool".
