Liverpool vs Burnley Full Highlights
Right after that grand victory, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp talks about the Reds forward Mohamed Salah and said, “We scored five goals two weeks ago [against Watford], and then we didn’t score versus Everton and everyone asks me about more offensive line-ups! Next time we don’t score, I think you will ask me again.”
The manager said, “We have no problem with confidence. We didn’t have a problem after the Everton game. You don’t have to think that everything you write influences us. Most of the things are not that interesting to us! You make a big fuss if we score five, then we are the best attacking side in the world, and we score nil and then we have an offensive problem.”

He said, “Today, Mo Salah for me was the best player on the pitch and he didn’t score. I am not sure you will see that in a lot of ratings, because he’s a striker and he didn’t score, but we have no problem with confidence. We are in a good moment.” The manager then added, “We have only to make sure that we stay in the really interesting competition on top of the table.”
Jurgen Klopp said, “The message from today is that nobody gets rid of us, if we play as we played today. We had the perfect mixture of fighting the opponent, fighting the circumstances and playing football. That was really good, and I liked it.” While talking about Manchester City’s last win, he said, “I think they try everything to whistle in the right way.”
