Liverpool travel to newly promoted Burnley this Saturday afternoon - a fixture originally scheduled to be the first game at Anfield.

The ongoing Main Stand developments at Anfield meant that LFC asked for permission to play this game away, and swapping the reverse fixture later this season.

Alberto Moreno was a recurring topic during the press conference with reporters asking Klopp about the players performance in the 4-3 win over Arsenal.  Alberto was involved in an early penalty decision for Arsenal, and also out of position for their first goal.

There were also questions about whether the reds had a thin squad at left back.

He seemed irked by the question but went on to suggest that there are plenty of people capable of playing in that position such as Milner, Clyne and

'Ragnar Klavan can play there on a very defensive day.'

He suggested that the perfect fit of price, defensive ability and attacking ability in a new left back had not yet been found.

'If it had we would have made the transfer.  You would know about it.'


Daniel Sturridge and James Milner are back in full training.  Lucas Leiva could return to full training 'possibly today', said Klopp.  Sakho 'isn't too far away'.

Milner could be involved at the weekend although Klopp did highlight that he had missed 9 days of training.  With regards to Sturridge he said that the reds are well served by strikers at the minute.

'Show me what you can do in training and I think I will pick the line-up.'
