Jurgen Klopp takes aim at officials following Liverpool’s draw with Burnley/Shocking Firmino stat resurfaces

Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has this evening revealed his frustration with the officiating during his side’s disappointing stalemate with Burnley.

Rodriguez cancels out Robertson

The Reds welcomed Sean Dyche’s men to Anfield a short time ago, for their latest Premier League outing.

Liverpool of course headed into proceedings having long wrapped up the English top-flight title, with the Merseysiders’ pursuit of Manchester City’s record century of points the only real remaining target for the champions this season.

Before today, the Anfield powerhouse sat on 92 points, with 4 games to play.

As such, with meetings with both Arsenal and Chelsea still to come, Liverpool were no doubt desperate to pick up all 3 points this afternoon.

When all was said and done, however, Klopp’s hosts could only muster up a 1-1 draw.

Despite having dominated both in terms of possession and chances created, Jay Rodriguez’s finish 20 minutes from time eventually saw Liverpool forced to settle for a share of the spoils.

Highlights: Liverpool 1-1 Burnley

‘Let all these challenges happen…’

As outlined above, meanwhile, on the back of his side’s stalemate, Jurgen Klopp was quick to point the finger of blame at the officials.

Burnley’s heavy-handed tactics were on full display throughout the 90 minutes on Merseyside this afternoon, with the Clarets having proven particularly aggressive from set-pieces.

And Klopp is evidently of the opinion that his side’s opponents were allowed to stretch their ‘dangerous’ play well outside of the laws of the game, with the Liverpool boss having claimed that referee David Coote simply ‘let all these challenges happen’:

Another major talking point stemming from Liverpool’s draw with Burnley, meanwhile, surrounds the goalscoring record of Roberto Firmino.

As highlighted by a number of fans online this evening, if Brazilian hitman Firmino fails to find the net in his side’s meeting with Chelsea in two weeks’ time, the 28-year-old will have gone the entire (title-winning) season without scoring a single home Premier League goal.
