Liverpool hot on City’s heels after James Milner sparks fightback at Burnley

Van Dijk Everton’s time-wasting antics came back to haunt them

Liverpool's German head coach utilised his squad to make seven changes from the side that clinched a dramatic stoppage-time Merseyside derby victory over Everton.

This is reflected in Klopp's side at Turf Moor, with the manager navigating a host of fitness issues for the 15th league game of the campaign.

"I said (to the officials) after the first challenge, I don't know who did it, but it was like a sliding challenge where the player came in from six or seven yards and gets the ball".

'I knew it could be a bit rusty, that's how it is with a lot of changes, but now we are warm, used to it and we adjust a little bit. You try something and you need someone to say "be careful".

"We don't think or speak too much about the game before when we go into the next game". Liverpool enters the contest in second place in the Premier League standings, and can cut Manchester City's lead to two points with a win.

"We all want to win football games, and there are different ways of doing it".

Turgeon noted that Stevenson requires "mechanical respiratory assistance, deep sedation and specialized neurological monitoring". Stevenson's partner, Simone God, also made her first public comments Tuesday, thanking people for their messages of support.


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp suggests that defender Joe Gomez faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury against Burnley. You get the ball, nice, but then, boom, you get the player as well.

Asked about the PSG reports, Fabinho told UOL, as quoted by FourFourTwo: "I was told there was something in the press, but I never said I'd like to leave Liverpool", he told UOL when asked about the PSG reports.

"The referees have to make sure it doesn't happen. I thought we were effective".

Liverpool had to wait until the 29th minute for their first effort on goal, a Virgil van Dijk header from Milner's corner easily saved by Joe Hart.

The Clarets gave their visitors a tough test and after goalkeeper Joe Hart had kept them in the game with two top-class saves from Daniel Sturridge and Naby Keita, Jack Cork put them ahead just after the break. He read Alexander-Arnold's set-piece perfectly to set up Firmino for a simple finish and the centre-back was a titanic presence at the back, as well as using possession well.
