It means Liverpool remain second, cutting Manchester City's advantage at the summit to two points with a 12th victory of the campaign, and in the process posting the club's best start to a top flight season after 15 games. Somebody has to tell you to stop doing it, make two more steps and make a normal challenge.

He said: "I'm pretty sure I don't make a lot of friends, but that's not my job". The goalkeeper could only parry, and when he dived forward to reclaim the ball Barnes got his foot in first, allowing Jack Cork to score from the ricochet. "Ok, no foul but Joe Gomez is injured".

"We have to make sure we are ready, that was clear before the season, that we have to be ready every three days".

Klopp's decision to make seven changes from the Merseyside derby victory over Everton nearly backfired until goals from James Milner, substitute Roberto Firmino with his first touch, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed a comeback win after Jack Cork had given the hosts the lead early in the second-half.

Wednesday's raids were the culmination of an investigation codenamed "Pollino" that was launched in 2016 against the 'Ndrangheta. Alessandro Barbera, who commands the investigative unit of Italy's financial police corps.

Klopp was involved in an heated exchange with opposite number Sean Dyche during the match, and the German feels that Burnley's approach to the game contributed to Gomez's injury. The second half was a flawless reaction and I am really, really happy about the three points. Because you get the player as well. You've got to put a marker on the game - not only with good tackles, but also with good play.

Speaking to Sport Bladet (as translated by Sport Witness), the Swede said: "If I'd been an Everton player, I'd have knocked him down, I think".

But Klopp was unhappy with the way Attwell refereed Wednesday's intense clash at a rainy Turf Moor. It's really good. Millie with a really, really good performance, especially physically, and scored that one. 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. We controlled the game in a lot of moments, but in all the moments where we gave Burnley the chance to have a proper tackle and stuff like that, then it didn't look that cool. "Second half, ideal reaction and really happy with three points".
