Jurgen Klopp not concerned by Liverpool’s goalscoring woes despite wasteful Burnley display


Jurgen Klopp is not concerned by Liverpool’s recent struggles to convert chances, despite seeing his side fail to break down an organised Burnley outfit at Anfield on Saturday.

Liverpool made 35 attempts on goal but could only draw 1-1 with Sean Dyche’s Clarets, and that only after Mohamed Salah had cancelled out a Scott Arfield opener.

Like in Wednesday’s frustrating 2-2 draw against Sevilla, Klopp’s side wasted chances to claim three points, but when asked whether he was concerned with such problems in front of goal, the Liverpool manager said: “No, not in the long-term.

“I’m still a football fan but I cannot think after 25 years in the business like a football fan but I know that the mother of all goals is the opportunity, the chance. If we we’re not creating chances then I would be really concerned but we are creating. We had enough chances to win.

“It was a good day but not a very good day and that’s why we made a few wrong decisions on the pitch but this was a really hard game to play and that has to be recognised. We will carry on.”
