Worrying Joe Gomez injury update provided by Jurgen Klopp

Jack Cork gave Burnley the lead at Turf Moor in the 54th minute.

Allison started off the counter-attack that led to Liverpool's third, as Salah lofted the ball to an onrushing Xherdan Shaqiri, who buried his first-time shot past Hart to seal the points.

Divock Origi came from nowhere to take centre stage in Sunday's Merseyside derby and the confidence that has given him will make him a completely different animal to Firmino.

That was also the last time Liverpool started without any of Salah and Firmino and Sadio Mane, who was out injured. Even Burnley's teamsheet revealed five changes of their own. "That was it. The reaction from our supporters at the end showed me they are still very much with us and that display was more like the standards we know we're capable of".

A physical opening 25 minutes saw plenty of hard tackles and few chances on goal, with Joe Gomez stretchered off in the 23rd minute and replaced by Trent Alexander-Arnold after a Ben Mee challenge.

The usually unruffled Virgil Van Dijk was caught in possession by Ashley Barnes early on, forcing the centre-back to sprint to make a recovery tackle, and that appeared to set the tone for instability and uncertainty within the visitors' ranks. Bobby with that one, first touch, scored. "Second half, ideal reaction and really happy with three points".

But just when it seemed they were getting into their stride Liverpool were hit with the sucker punch. "Just be careful. Sliding six or seven yards to win the ball, these times are over and somebody needs to tell you to stop doing it".

James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita will start in midfield.

With Firmino and Salah now sent on as substitutes, a quick second goal for the away team followed.

The home side were always likely to look to score from a set-piece and cruelly, when Barnes had applied a ideal finish to a well-flighted free-kick from Robbie Brady at the end of the first half, his celebrations were cut short by a narrow offside call.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has suggested that his players did not receive enough protection in Wednesday's Premier League fixture at Burnley.
