Liverpool rallied from a goal down to beat Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor on Wednesday to keep pace with Premier League leaders Manchester City.

"They wanted to be aggressive". I think his blocked shot was the biggest chance we had in the first half, I'm not 100 per cent sure but at least it looked like a proper chance; Burnley blocked it. You get the ball, nice, but it's like bowling because you get the player as well.

"Joe's injured and probably not only a little bit", said Klopp after the 3-1 win at Turf Moor. "That was it. The reaction from our supporters at the end showed me they are still very much with us and that display was more like the standards we know we're capable of".

Klopp's decision to make seven changes from the Merseyside derby victory over Everton nearly backfired until goals from James Milner, substitute Roberto Firmino with his first touch, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed a comeback win after Jack Cork had given the hosts the lead early in the second-half. But with six or seven yards and then [slide], these times are over.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche said his side produced some "excellent" challenges during the game.

"That's part of that front-foot mentality". I thought we were effective. "The second half was the flawless reaction and I'm really happy about the three points", he added.

"I got a message saying it was Wolves away". But we've got to get back to being "us". So I was really happy we could just adjust a few tactical things [at half-time], but I told the players I shouted a lot in the first half but I wasn't angry. The shape was really good tonight, the energy and endeavour.

The Clarets gave their visitors a tough test and after goalkeeper Joe Hart had kept them in the game with two top-class saves from Daniel Sturridge and Naby Keita, Jack Cork put them ahead just after the break.

The Brazil worldwide has not lost in his opening 15 league matches as a Liverpool player; equalling the club record in the Premier League set by Javier Mascherano in November 2007.

"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".
