Firmino and Mane keep Liverpool hot on City's heels

Liverpool vs. Burnley Preview Live Stream How to Watch Premier League Online TV Channel

The Reds English centre-back has still not recovered from the injury which sparked an outbreak from Klopp on the night when the 51-year-old manager was outspoken in his criticism of the Clarets' physical approach.

"I thought Liverpool were four or five years behind Manchester City".

Klopp was also pleased with Liverpool's response after they fell behind in the sixth minute when Burnley scored direct from a corner.

Liverpool now trail Manchester City by one point at the top of the table with nine games remaining.

De Bruyne will have played in just seven of City's 30 league games this term if, as expected, he misses out against Watford. It affected him. With the line-up we had and system-wise, it wasn't hard but we have to change a little bit if Shaq is playing.

"So if you put the two in 10, absolutely terrific, the points return in those games, 18 points - almost two a game in the Premier League is really good".

- Liverpool have now gone 36 Premier League games without a loss at Anfield (W26 D10), the joint-third longest unbeaten home run in the competition's history, behind only Chelsea (86 games between March 2004-October 2008) and Manchester City (37 between December 2010-December 2012).

Lallana, who hasn't scored or assisted in any Premier League game since the last day of the 2016-17 season, would be few fans' pick to start in the advanced midfield slot.

Say what you like about the Premier League title race, but there's so much positivity at Anfield right now and Van Dijk could be the latest player to stick around for the ride.

Steven Gerrard said the unfortunate slip that effectively ended Liverpool's Premier League title hopes in the 2013-14 season still haunts him and the pain is unlikely to ease even if Juergen Klopp's team deliver the trophy this year.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said after his side's goalless draw with Merseyside rivals Everton last weekend that "the weather circumstances didn't help for football in general" and made specific reference to the wind. This is second-best after Salah but given the Egyptian's dip in form, Klopp will look for others to pitch in, both in the build-up, as well as in the attack and Firmino is ideal for both. For me Mo Salah was the best player on the pitch today and he didn't score. The trio of Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain aren't that far from competing for a first-team place.

Asked if Liverpool go to Germany with confidence of progressing, Robertson replied: "Yes, of course - we have to".

"We have very often talks and if you are a striker or an offensive player and you have chances in a game, you want to score with them".
