Liverpool coach

Jurgen Klopp

said after the game: "What do I think? Everything, all the possible words in English, huge, huge, it's a huge punch in the face or whatever, it's my responsibility and it's the easy explanation. We held the ball a lot and created some situations, but we couldn't Finish properly. It left the game open and then Burnley got the penalty even though Allison told me he did not touch it. We made wrong decisions, my job is to make sure the players are in the right positions and feel good. It is a hard loss and not easy for me to explain. The players worked hard. And it did not happen. When something does not work, you have to try harder and work harder. It was not easy to lose and we did it. I do not want to blame anyone, we have to solve it together and that is what we will do. There is not much time in football. We tried everything. We We can't imagine the championship fight at the moment. "

Disappointed



Georginio Vinaldom

said after the game: "It's a tough loss. Before the game we had good intentions and faith. We wanted to hold the ball and we managed to do that and create enough situations to score a goal, but unfortunately we didn't score. We were not sharp enough and Burnley got Pendel. We had 100% situations. We're having a hard time conquering right now. It's hard to explain. People from outside will say we have no confidence. I still think we have. We have to move on. We should not think about a difficult moment, but perform properly. "The next game is against Manchester United and we will try to win there."



Winning

goalie Ashley Barnes

said: "It feels like we did something huge. What a performance by the players. It was a real team performance and luckily we scored three points. We believed we could win even though it was clear it would be difficult. We stayed calm and it paid off. "We improved as the game progressed and it worked."

"Feels like we did something huge."

Former Liverpool stopper and Sky commentator

Jamie Krager

said: "We talked about falling at the Liverpool level and Jürgen Klopp came out and defended his players as you would expect from a coach whose players have done so much for him. But right now the title is slipping away. Of six points, but the fitness Liverpool are in and the order of the games in the coming months ... I think Liverpool fans should worry more about a place in the top four than about the championship. Liverpool should first get back to scoring goals and winning before they even think about a championship. It's unbelievable what's happened in the last few weeks. Such a change from the 0: 7 against Crystal Palace to the current period when so many players are out of shape. It's Klopp's job to fix this situation, whether it's in the lineup, the squad or the squad. "Teams that will fight for a place in the top 4, then Liverpool will have a very difficult time."



Grams Sons

added: "It was in the air. Liverpool have been a shadow of the team that has been here for the last three years. There was no spark of the night, they were very mediocre when it came to the dangerous and weak areas there. They lack quality. Jürgen has a lot to think about. "These players are facing a big test right now."
