Matip: We did a lot of good things but not enough

Sun, 17/09/2017 - 10:31

Joel Matip believes Liverpool did 'a lot of good things' during a frustrating 1-1 draw with Burnley at Anfield on Saturday.

But the defender is already eyeing the Reds' next outing, where he wants to see even more positive moments from his teammates and, consequently, an improved result.

Jürgen Klopp's team dominated their meeting with the Clarets, enjoying 71 per cent of the possession and taking 35 shots to their opponents' five.

But they fell short after Mohamed Salah cancelled out Scott Arfield's opener, failing to capitalise on the numerous opportunities they subsequently created.

"It was a tough game and I think we deserved more but we have to handle this and we're [already] looking forward to the next game," Matip told Liverpoolfc.com.

"We did a lot of good things but not enough. But we are on a good way and maybe next time we score that one goal more than the other team.

"The whole game we created a few chances but we didn't use them and they scored one time. [It was] a tough day and we have to learn from this again."

LFCTV GO: Matip discusses Burnley draw

The visitors took a direct approach to goal throughout, with Chris Wood posing a physical threat that at times troubled Matip and his fellow centre-half Ragnar Klavan.

On that aspect of Burnley's tactics, the No.32 added: "You know what they do but they train this really often so they know how to do it and it's still difficult, even if you know before.

"They did what they wanted to do well so it was hard for us.

"It wasn't easy but we had to go for the second ball. It was a really difficult challenge against him."

Lucky father and son chosen to install 125 corner flags

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 20:46

Two lucky Liverpool fans were selected at random to install special 125th anniversary corner flags on the pitch at Anfield for Saturday's game against Burnley.

David Withers and son Michael, 11, were outside the stadium before the Premier League match when they were approached by chance and offered a unique task.

The 125-themed corner flags were just one element of a range of activities to mark the recent anniversary of the club’s first ever match – a 7-1 victory over Rotherham Town on September 1, 1892.

David – who has supported the Reds since the age of six – and Michael were attending their first Anfield game since returning to the United Kingdom from living in Shanghai.

Having fulfilled their unexpected duty ahead of kick-off, the father and son took up their spots on the Kop to watch Jürgen Klopp’s side as they were held to a 1-1 draw by the Clarets.

Jürgen Klopp on draw with Burnley, Coutinho and defending

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 20:07

Jürgen Klopp insisted Liverpool's performance against Burnley merited more than a 1-1 draw but accepted that his side have to improve after a challenging week.

The Reds had 35 shots to the visitors’ five at Anfield on Saturday, but could only find an equaliser from Mohamed Salah following Scott Arfield’s opening goal.

Read on for a transcript of the manager’s post-match press conference.

On the amount of chances Liverpool created…

That’s why I’m still not in the perfect mood, I would say. It feels strange, it feels wrong, but it’s a fact – we drew. A lot of parts of the game I was really happy with. We made seven changes but it was still really fluent, it looked like proper football – offensive football, dominant football, possession football how it should be. We created moments. You cannot create in each situation a finishing situation, but we did it absolutely often enough. It could have been more often, of course, because with one better decision here or there then we would have had a few more. But it was the best game against Burnley since I’m here, obviously not result-wise but performance-wise for sure.

[We were] unlucky, I would say, in and around the penalty situation. For me, it’s a penalty, I cannot change this even when I saw the pictures back after the game. We still had the chance to score but unfortunately we hit the crossbar. Obviously fortune didn’t wear a Liverpool shirt today. I don’t want to ignore that they had two headers at the end of the game; that would have been typical a little bit for us if they would have scored in these situations. It was a very disciplined performance of the opponent, and also disciplined of my side. This one goal, that’s where we have to improve most, to switch the mood in being offensive, being offensive, being offensive – do, do, do all the time – and then this one situation, a little block here and we missed Arfield, or forgot him, and he can score then. So it doesn’t feel good.

On Philippe Coutinho…

He needs rhythm. We didn’t want to change him, it looked a little bit confused when we brought the subs on because I asked him and it was a thumb up. When they got drinks in a little interruption, he said ‘OK, it’s only cramp, but maybe better to stop’ and we had to change this.

On whether the Reds could have done better with the goal they conceded…

Yes. Could Trent have won the first headed challenge? Yes. Then the block on Joel, it’s difficult to do better because the defender cannot do it exactly the same because then it’s a foul. I’m not sure if it was already in the box but for sure around the box. He did it in 500 other situations really well. Raggy was there to protect the situation but the ball bounced in the wrong direction, it’s difficult to judge. Robbo knows he could have seen Arfield earlier. That’s how it is. He goes in between; it was a bouncing ball, they are quicker and they are more used to these situations, they do it more often. That’s what they are working for. He hit the ball perfect, it was not even that he needed a few touches. It was a good goal, absolutely, but we could have defended it much better.

On whether the last three results have made for one of his most frustrating weeks as Liverpool manager…

Result-wise, you are right, but honestly, as a person I’m not like this. If I can get over the few really, in my opinion, more than unlucky situations today then it’s my job to see the performance – and we reacted really well. Why we feel so disappointed or frustrated is because we all see what this team would be able to do. Seven changes and playing that kind of football – nobody should take that for granted, it’s pretty rare, so that’s good. Obviously we have quality and now we have to use this quality consistently, that should be the plan.

We have still space for improvement, that was clear before the season, but we could have won pretty much all our games so far when you think about the performance. That’s a very important thing, so we have quite a good form or shape. We didn’t win all of them and we lost one really high, but everyone who was there [saw it was a] strange game – it was not that we performed from the first second like you would imagine when somebody loses 5-0. Yes, we have to improve, but [there are] a lot of really positive things. Unfortunately, I still don’t feel any positivity in this moment, I am still in the 1-1 mood, but it is easy to see all the positive things from tomorrow on again. They are there. 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. We have to be strong, I know that, but we really can be strong.

On whether seeing results such as Manchester City’s 6-0 win at Watford compound his frustration at today’s draw…

No, how can I compare? Obviously they took a lot of confidence from our game, unfortunately for us, but it is like it is. We and all the other teams will have moments in the season when it is a little bit more difficult to go through. That’s completely normal. We should not compare with other teams. I understand and know the reasons why maybe a lot of people are doing that, but we have our way and it’s not the worst.

Young fans help celebrate LFC’s 125th anniversary

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 20:00

Liverpool FC today celebrated the 125th anniversary of its first game as 125 young local fans and former players came together to form a special guard of honour ahead of the Reds' meeting with Burnley.

Local schoolchildren who attend Red Neighbours and LFC Foundation programmes were given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take to the pitch at Anfield, welcoming fans to the game alongside former players and the Junior Lord Mayor of Liverpool for September, Freddie Hall. The youngsters were also joined by participants from the LFC Foundation’s Premier League Kicks Programme, who carried a commemorative centre circle flag onto Anfield’s hallowed turf. 

Before kick-off the youngsters met LFC CEO Peter Moore, who gave a pep talk on the importance of the 125 milestone and the club’s rich history.

One young Red, Abigail Alker - who suffers from childhood cancer, Neuroblastoma - was also invited to Anfield by Red Neighbours for a special day as club mascot. Abigail joined skipper Jordan Henderson in leading out the team ahead of kick-off.

Meanwhile, guests of the LFC Foundation from Anfield Sports and Community Centre and Red Neighbours' over-50s Walking Football programme were invited to enjoy the game from an executive box in the Main Stand thanks to donations from partners. Some of LFC’s eldest fans - Harry Lyness and Eric Hooton - joined the group to celebrate their 90th birthdays.

Fans at Anfield also joined in the celebrations as they formed a commemorative mosaic around the ground to celebrate 125 years of the Liverpool Way.

Match report: Reds held to Burnley draw

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 18:52

Liverpool endured a frustrating afternoon at Anfield as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley on Saturday.

The Reds responded quickly to going behind to an early Scott Arfield strike as Mohamed Salah scored at the Kop end with the Clarets' first shot.

But the hosts were unable to find another goal in the remainder of the first half or the entirety of the second as the visitors held on for a point.

Key points

  • Arfield gives Burnley the lead
  • Reds equalise through Salah
  • Clarets dogged defending frustrates

Team news

With the Reds coming into the game off the back of midweek Champions League commitments, Jürgen Klopp opted shuffled his pack significantly.

The boss made seven changes to his starting XI, with Philippe Coutinho earning his first start of the season and Dejan Lovren missing out due to a sore back.

First half

Despite the reshuffle, the hosts started well, with Daniel Sturridge testing Tom Heaton's replacement Nick Pope with a low effort early before Salah had a penalty appeal waved away by referee Roger East.

But Burnley provided a response and, moments after a brilliant Andy Robertson challenge had denied Chris Wood, they were ahead.

The visitors won two successive headers before the ball dropped to Arfield, who had time and space in the centre of the box to bury his shot in the bottom corner. 

Thankfully, Liverpool did not allow the concession of the goal to disrupt their rhythm, and it was for that reason they were quickly level.

Salah's diagonal run was brilliantly found by Emre Can, and the Egyptian showed coolness in chesting the ball down before slamming home. 

The hosts continued to push as the break neared but saw efforts from Sturridge and Salah hit the side-netting and the goalkeeper respectively as Burnley held on.

Second half

The Clarets again struggled to get out of their own half when the second period resumed, with Sturridge and Coutinho taking advantage of the space in front of the box to take shots that went narrowly over.

Can then tested the 'keeper with an attempt from a similar area, before Sturridge followed suit after working space on his left foot.

Try as they might, though, the Reds couldn't break the deadlock - leading Klopp to call for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dominic Solanke with 78 minutes gone.

In the aftermath of those changes, an intricate move that ended in Alexander-Arnold shooting at Pope looked to be the nearest they would come.

However, there was still time for Solanke to push a Salah cross onto the bar from close range, putting the seal on a day of frustration for the hosts.

Jürgen Klopp explains his seven changes for Burnley clash

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 16:23

Jürgen Klopp has explained the reasons behind his decision to make seven changes to the Liverpool team for today's Premier League meeting with Burnley.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Philippe Coutinho, Ragnar Klavan, Simon Mignolet, James Milner, Andy Robertson and Daniel Sturridge come into the starting XI at Anfield.

“It was about the intensity of the games and the quality of the squad,” said the manager, referencing the clashes with Manchester City and Sevilla during the past week.

“There’s no doubt that the line-up we found today is a very strong one. It’s a good situation.

“I told the boys already, this is a wonderful line-up but we shouldn’t rely on this. It’s all about finding the right attitude. I know the boys are ready to work but we also need to be ready not to get frustrated if different situations don’t come through, and not lose confidence because this or that doesn’t work. We need to enjoy the job, because that’s what Burnley are doing.”

11 pre-match stats: Gini set for Liverpool milestone

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 11:05

Georginio Wijnaldum is in line to play his 50th game for Liverpool in this afternoon’s Premier League clash with Burnley.

In addition to the above fact, with the help of club statistician Ged Rea we reveal 10 other key pre-match stats...

Liverpool have won five of the six Premier League meetings between the teams, with the sole Burnley success coming at Turf Moor last season.

In those games, the Reds have netted 13 times, conceding three. Liverpool have won all three home clashes in the Premier League, scoring on eight occasions. 

The last Liverpool player to hit a hat-trick against Burnley was Yossi Benayoun in a 4-0 Anfield win in September 2009.

The Reds are looking to beat Burnley for a fifth time in a row at Anfield for the first time since 1925-26 when they also recorded five in succession.

There has been one goalless draw at Anfield in 40 league meetings - that came in December 1920.

The Reds have had a player dismissed in each of the last two matches - Sadio Mane and Joe Gomez. Never in their history has that happened in three games in succession. 

Liverpool have kept four successive league clean sheets at Anfield since the defeat to Crystal Palace back in April. The last time they kept a fifth top-flight home shut-out was in February 2007 (in a sequence of nine matches).

The Reds are five goals short of recording 200 under Jürgen Klopp in all competitions, while they have never lost back-to-back league games under the boss.

In the Premier League era Liverpool have earned 999 points at Anfield.

Burnley picked up seven points away from home in the whole of last season, but already this term they have four from two games. So far in this campaign the Clarets have scored four times away from home. It took them 10 games to net as many goals last season.

Henderson: We're constantly inspired by LFC's history

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 10:50

As Liverpool prepare to mark their 125th anniversary with a series of events at today’s game with Burnley, Jordan Henderson has explained how the club’s history helps inspire the current crop of players.

Writing in ‘This is Anfield’, the captain insists that the Reds’ illustrious past and reminders of it are used as motivation as the modern-day squad aim to add their names to the history books.

He said: “Playing for a club with our history definitely has an impact on you as a player. Being the current captain probably hammers that home even more, but it's always around you.

“When we play in the Champions League we wear a badge on the shirt with the number '5' on it. Every day at Melwood we walk in past the European Cup, a bust of Bill Shankly and a wall marking all the trophies the club has won. It's the same at Anfield – and, by the way, rightly so. Who wouldn't be proud of this history?

“It's something that attracts you as a player – makes you want to come here then stay here as long as possible.

“It is often referenced, to us the current group of players, whether the history of success puts added pressure on us to achieve? It does – but not in a negative way. The key for us and the players that follow us, is to focus entirely on what history we can create. We should be inspired by the legends and the past achievements here, but not weighed down by it.

“That is easier said than done sometimes and there are only the players of here-and-now that can do anything about it.  It's for us to put more trophies in the cabinet and have achievements etched onto the wall for the next generation of Liverpool players to walk past and be inspired by.

“I have no doubt this team and this squad is good enough to do that. So, we have to focus on what we can do and then work hard every day to make it happen. That includes today against Burnley.”

Klopp: Today's an experience we have to get used to and embrace

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 10:45

Jürgen Klopp believes Liverpool must embrace the prospect of returning to domestic duties so soon after European action as he eyes a lengthy run in the Champions League for his side, this season and beyond.

The Reds take on Burnley at Anfield this afternoon just days on from Wednesday’s 2-2 home draw with Sevilla.

Klopp wrote in ‘This is Anfield’: “This afternoon the focus is back on the Premier League and a really, really tough game against Burnley. We saw last season, home and away, just how good Burnley are, and in my opinion they get even better for this campaign.

“Sean, I am sure, is rightly proud of how he continues to build his team and improve them each and every campaign. They have threats all over the pitch. Often the focus is on their fight and spirit and how they are a difficult opponent to play against.

“All this is true. But what is also true is that they have quality and talent to hurt when attacking. We are aware and prepared for all these threats and know that unless we perform to the highest level again we will not be happy at full-time.

“It is a test for us, following such a high-intensity Champions League night with a high-intensity Premier League fixture. We have had experience already this season because of the qualifier matches.

“It's something we need to embrace and be good at, because the plan is to have a long European campaign and to be doing this season after season. This applies to our brilliant supporters also. I think the Anfield crowd on Wednesday were outstandingly good in lifting the team in big moments. We will need this more so today.

“We don't have too many 3pm Saturday kick-offs, but I know these are 'traditional' in England. Hopefully this produces a 'traditional' Anfield atmosphere and it will give the players extra energy in the moments when they require it.”

The view from Turf Moor: 'I'm expecting a reaction from Liverpool'

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 10:30

Ahead of Liverpool's meeting with Burnley at Anfield on Saturday afternoon, we asked Clarets fan Jamie Smith to give us the lowdown on the opposition...

Seven points from four games so far, plus a Carabao Cup win over your big local rivals, you must be really pleased with your start to the season?

Absolutely delighted! We didn't finish last season well and you often see poor form carry over into the new campaign, so that was the major concern for me. Although Chelsea shot themselves in the foot a bit with two red cards, winning at the home of the champions on the opening day was a great way to get up and running and we'd certainly take being in the top half, above the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal, at this stage. The cup win over Blackburn was a nice bonus too, even if the gulf between the clubs made it a fairly straightforward win. The challenge now will be maintaining the start we've had.

Four of those points have come from trips to Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, so does that give you added confidence going into Saturday’s game?

Definitely. Everyone knows our away record was awful last season so it was vital to see an improvement on that. To take four points from trips to last season's top two is more than we could have dreamed of, really. In hindsight winning at Crystal Palace in April was a big result as it proved to the lads that they could do it - it feels like a mental blockage has been lifted. Obviously we beat Liverpool at home last season too - when Sadio Mane was also unavailable - so that's an extra confidence boost for us.

Two goals in two Premier League appearances for your record signing Chris Wood. Will he be Burnley’s biggest threat at Anfield?
 
I think so. I was a bit unsure when we went for him after selling Andre Gray, thinking he was a bit too similar to Sam Vokes, but he seems to be more mobile and have a touch more to his game than the Wales international. His movement and anticipation have both impressed me in his couple of games so far. Wood scored a hat-trick on international duty for New Zealand as well, so he's on fire at the moment. Creatively, we rely a lot on Robbie Brady to provide quality balls into the box, especially from set pieces, although Steven Defour can also unlock a defence if he gets time and space on the ball.

How big a blow is the absence of Tom Heaton due to the shoulder injury he picked up against Palace last weekend?

It is a blow but, as Sean Dyche would doubtless say, it gives an opportunity to young Nick Pope, who did really well under a lot of pressure when he came on against Palace. Of course, Heaton is our captain too and we'll miss his leadership and organisational skills, especially as the centre-back partnership of James Tarkowski and Ben Mee is still newish and quite raw. Pope has only conceded one goal in half a dozen games for us, albeit mostly playing in cup matches against lower-league sides, but he has a big reputation and I'm looking forward to seeing how he develops with an extended run in the side.

How do you expect Burnley to line up?

Dyche started with 4-4-2 for the first time in the league this season for the Palace game, pairing Wood and Vokes, but it didn't work that well, despite the win, and a change back to 4-5-1 might be more suitable, especially in a game where we're highly likely to be starved of possession. The formation might depend on whether Jeff Hendrick recovers from a thigh injury in time as we don't have a lot of depth in central midfield. The win against Liverpool at the Turf last season will be the blueprint - press high and try and force mistakes and sit deep when we don't have the ball to negate the pace of the likes of Mohamed Salah. It won't be pretty to watch, but it might work!

What have you made of Liverpool so far this season?

Difficult to say after the Manchester City game, although you'd expect there will be a reaction from a heavy loss like that. The pace in Liverpool's attack makes them very hard to stop when they get going, but Mane not playing is a big boost for us. When he was missing for the game at the Turf last year it let us defend our box and restrict Liverpool mostly to hopeful efforts from distance.

Finally, your score prediction?

I fully expect Jürgen Klopp to demand a response from the defeat at City and it could be a tough afternoon for us. Our hope is we can stay in the game as long as possible, but a narrow defeat wouldn't be too disappointing given our fine start. I'll say 2-1 Liverpool, the same as last season.

Special 125th anniversary celebrations at Anfield today

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 10:00

Liverpool FC will celebrate the 125th anniversary of the club's first ever game at Anfield today.

On September 1, 1892, the Reds played their maiden fixture following an acrimonious split from Everton, running out 7-1 winners over Rotherham Town at Anfield.

And, just over 125 years on from that win, this significant milestone will be marked with special celebrations before and during this afternoon's Premier League meeting with Burnley.

Anfield's Fan Zones will host live music and a 125-themed Q&A with club legends in the build-up to the match.

There will also be a special mosaic displayed prior to kick-off, LFC Foundation activities at half-time, and other commemorative touches at the Reds' home ground.

Wijnaldum: We're prepared for Sadio's absence

Sat, 16/09/2017 - 08:00

Georginio Wijnaldum has acknowledged that the loss of Sadio Mane for three games due to suspension has come as 'a blow' to Liverpool.

But the Dutchman revealed that the Reds' approach to training means they are always prepared to cope with the absence of any individual.

As a consequence of the red card he received against Manchester City last weekend, Mane will sit out Saturday's meeting with Burnley at Anfield and the back-to-back trips to Leicester City that follow.

However, Wijnaldum is hopeful Jürgen Klopp's team won't struggle without their Senegalese wide-man, thanks to the emphasis placed on the collective at Melwood.

"It's always a blow if you lose a player," the No.5 admitted to Liverpoolfc.com.

"It was already a blow to lose Adam Lallana at the beginning of the season. Those players are really important for us.

"It's always a blow for a team if important players get injured or suspended. But we're trying to create a base that when another player comes in we still try to play the same way.

"Someone else will fill in his position. We're going to try to play the same as usual.

"We train to not be affected by someone's position, so if someone changes from a position it must not be a problem for another player. 

"We're trying to create a good base for the team and the players so when someone else plays you can still play the same way."

Today's game against Burnley is likely to provide another test of the Reds' ability to overcome a deep-lying opposition defence.

Liverpool struggled to counter that particular tactical approach at times last season - a theme that first emerged during a 2-0 defeat to the Clarets at Turf Moor in August.

Wijnaldum and his teammates know exactly what they have to do to prevail against a massed backline.

"Last season, in a few games we had problems with that," he added.

"In those kinds of games, you must have the confidence and the faith that you will score and will create chances, even if it's really difficult because they drop deep and defend really well. 

"You still need confidence to create chances; against Crystal Palace, we had that and we were lucky we scored at the end of the game.

"You need a lot of patience against those kinds of teams. They drop deep and don't give you a lot of space to play football and there aren't a lot of gaps between the lines. 

"You need to be ready so when they give you that space you can use it. You have to be really patient. A lot of times that's also the problem - when it doesn't happen quickly, you force things and you make them better."
