Klopp wants an atmosphere against 'special' Burnley

Klopp wants an atmosphere against 'special' Burnley

Just a few days later, they trooped home from Turf Moor with a chastening defeat. Only two of their 31 points have been on the road, although one was recorded at Old Trafford.

Jurgen Klopp: "I know what people say and is not the first time people have said something like this, but I don't have a Plan B in my mind". It will be hard but we don't throw away competitions.

Everyone knows that Jurgen Klopp is mother and father of "gegenpressing" - style of play that you leave the possession to the opponent and attack their back line so every tackle or interception in that area is pretty much a goal scoring chance. It's an all-round challenge.

"I think it would help a lot in offside situations because it makes the life easier for the referees", he added. That's what training is for.

"I think it's time to test it, we speak a while about it", Klopp told a news conference at Melwood on Friday afternoon. We need to be ready.

"That's good for the club that people are recognising that. We have had good sessions". I was just absolutely delighted with the result to be honest - and the performance.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

The lowest points tally collected away from home in a single Premier League season collected is three; set by Derby County in 2007-08.

Allen isn't coming off a great season, with just 406 yards on 35 catches, but he is a good red-zone threat and a good blocker. Allen, 27, is locked up through 2019 and has cap hits of $4.9 million in 2017, $4 million in 2018 and $7.4 million in 2019.

PREMIER LEAGUE squads are bigger than ever these days, meaning plenty of players get forgotten in the stands.

The Reds host one of the five teams to have beaten them this season, with Burnley having triumphed 2-0 over Klopp's side at Turf Moor in August.

Their last win at Anfield was in September 1974.

It is a monkey they have failed to dislodge from their back even when visiting Accrington and Sunderland in cup competitions, and Dyche's 12th-placed side can not escape the questions about it given they are now in the midst of a four-game run on their travels.

They could do the top-flight double against Liverpool for the first time since 1929-30. They have not won in their last five outings, losing three.

Firmino has been leading Liverpool's frontline for the majority of this season and has scored 10 goals in 32 appearances from a false No. 9 position.

Burnley themselves are coming off a poor result against Swansea City, although he Clarets are now nine points above the drop zone which should be enough of an advantage to see them avoid getting caught in a relegation battle.
