The Liverpool manager utilised all three second half substitutions to little avail.

The reds enjoyed over 80% possession in the game, with Burnley becoming the first side to win a league game with such little possession since possession stats were first recorded 11 years ago.

LFC had more than 20 shots but were limited to long range attempts - with Klopp bemoaning the choices his players made.

'Crossing into the box when nobody was there, taking long-shots when people were in the box' he said.

'The decision making was poor - we lost the ball in the wrong moments.  At half time I felt there was still something in the game for us so again we tried but we lost our timing and patience.  

'There are different ways to football.  The Burnley strikers played really well - their team defended with a big heart.  I really respect this.  Now we have to accept the result and carry on.
