Burnley 1 – Liverpool 3
Liverpool’s winning run continued on Wednesday night at Burnley.
Jurgen Klopp made seven changes to his Liverpool side for the trip to Turf Moor.
Liverpool fans would have been fearing the worst when Burnley took the lead through Jack Cork after 54 minutes.
But the Reds soon hit back through James Milner.
Roberto Firmino tapped home Liverpool’s second, while Xherdan Shaqiri sealed the win at the death.
Joe Gomez injury update & referee Stuart Attwell
Liverpool’s win came at a cost.
Jurgen Klopp revealed after the match that Dejan Lovren missed the Burnley game after he picked up an injury.
While Liverpool suffered an early blow in the match when Joe Gomez was taken out in a challenge with Ben Mee.
Joe Gomez was carried off on a stretcher.
Trent Alexander-Arnold came on as a replacement.
After the match Jurgen Klopp revealed that Gomez may now be a long term injury absentee for the Reds.
Moreover, the Liverpool boss called out the performance of referee Stuart Atwell:
I’m pretty sure I don’t make a lot of friends, but that’s not my job.
I said after the first challenge, I don’t know who did it, a sliding tackle from six/seven yards, getting the ball, everybody likes it, I said to the ref ‘it’s no foul but please tell them you cannot do that’.
Nobody can judge that. You get the ball, nice, but it’s like bowling because you get the player as well. It happened four or five times, everybody likes it, but Joe is injured, and probably not only a little bit.
Will the FA charge Klopp for his comments about their referee?
"After the first challenge I said to the referee 'you cannot do that!'" 😡
