Liverpool 1/4 to win against Burnley in Saturday's Premier League clash

Nick Pope will start in goal for Sean Dyche's Burnley side on Saturday at Anfield

Liverpool's completed a disappointing week by drawing 1-1 with Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.

Stop if you've heard this one before.

Liverpool takes on Burnley today in the English Premier League.

Burnley then took full advantage of their first genuine spell of pressure and possession as Arfield fired home a crisp finish from the edge of the box to put the visitors ahead largely against the run of play.

Mohamed Salah's fifth goal of the season, and his fourth in succession at Anfield, quickly restored parity.

It was clear that quality and inventiveness would be needed to break down Burnley, who at times opted for a back six without the ball.

At some point, somebody like Arsenal will be on the end of another Liverpool hiding but today Burnley got another great result to add to those they got against Spurs and Chelsea in what is shaping up to be a good season for them. The Reds were also forced to draw 2-2 with Sevilla midweek. Receiving a long pass from Emre Can, with flawless control, Salah unleashed a strong shot that cannot be pushed by goalkeeper Nick Pope.

"Overall, you are expecting more". Yes", Klopp admitted. "Then the block on Joel, it's hard to do better because the defender can not do it exactly the same because then it's a foul. The venue of the match is at Anfield, Liverpool.

Player Ratings: Philippe Coutinho of Liverpool attempts to get past Jack Cork of Burnley during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Burnley at Anfield on September 16, 2017 in Liverpool, England.

Back in the starting XI after Lorius Karius received the nod against Sevilla, Mignolet looked strong in limited work.

Coutinho looking like Coutinho again in the opening minutes of this game. He goes in between; it was a bouncing ball, they are quicker and they are more used to these situations, they do it more often. Newcastle made it three league wins a row by beating Stoke 3-1, Leicester and Huddersfield drew 1-1, and West Brom and West Ham played out a goalless draw.

Instead Liverpool were left to rue the absence of the suspended Sadio Mane and the eighth goal they conceded in eight days. The Brazilian, meanwhile, was hooked after 78 minutes for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Egypt worldwide read the delivery perfectly, unlike Ward and Ben Mee who backed off and allowed Salah to control inside the penalty area and steer a fine low finish beyond Burnley's stand-in goalkeeper Nick Pope.

While there's a good chance that he will find himself struggling for a goal at some later point in his career, he's certainly at the start of a hot-streak at present and with an error-prone Liverpool defence waiting to greet him this weekend, there's a good chance his 100% record could continue for at least another week.

The ex-Charlton Athletic man could face competition at Turf Moor in the near future - with former Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard training with Burnley in the past few days - but Pope did enough to suggest he can deputise while Heaton recovers.
