Liverpool stage second-half revival to beat Burnley 3-1

You get the ball, nice, but it's like bowling because you get the player as well.

Joe Gomez starts at right-back in place of Trent Alexander-Arnold, with Alberto Moreno and Joel Matip also getting rare starts in defence for Liverpool.

"The one at the death is an ugly goal just because we think it's gone out of play and our players are busy reacting to that - we didn't get a lot I don't think, on the maybes, from the referee, but that aside, it was a good, solid performance". It's not how it should be.

And he had no qualms about the approach they took. That seemed a lot, even allowing for Sadio Mané's foot injury, though the Liverpool manager said it was par for the course for the busiest stage of the season.

Two goals in the space of seven minutes midway through the second-half sealed a hard-fought 3-1 win at struggling Burnley after Jack Cork's 54th-minute effort had given the hosts an unexpected lead against a side they've now beaten just once in the last 12 attempts spanning 44 years. I told the ref he needed to calm it down because the danger of injury is always there and we had to make a substitution of an really important player for us.

"We make mistakes, but usually I learn from it".

Dyche said he hoped his side had "bottomed out" after a poor display at Crystal Palace on Saturday, and added: "We had to respond, Saturday was not good enough, the players know that, there's a great honesty to them, and pride in what we do, and that was intact tonight". But we've got to get back to being "us".

James Milner put Liverpool back on level terms eight minutes later, rifling a low bouncing shot from the edge of the box into the bottom corner past an unsighted Joe Hart in the Burnley goal.

"We wanted to change when we were 1-0 down and we changed at 1-1 because it was clear, we had to try and win the game".
