Jurgen Klopp‘s Liverpool didn’t leave it late this time, but still overcame a scare in a match they were expected to win on Wednesday at Turf Moor.
[ RECAP: Burnley 1-3 Liverpool ]
The Reds attack came back from a 1-0 deficit to top Burnley 3-1 and stay within two points of Premier League leaders Manchester City.
“Reacting like we reacted at a tough place like Turf Moor and Burnley, that’s special,” Klopp said. “It’s really good.”
“Burnley had a specific plan, to be really aggressive in their challenges and stuff like that, so each ball they won, even if it was a throw-in for us, helped them and obviously didn’t help us mood-wise,” Klopp said. “So I was really happy we could just adjust a few tactical things [at half-time], but I told the players I shouted a lot in the first half but I wasn’t angry.”
The Reds head to Bournemouth on Saturday before a monumental visit from Napoli on Tuesday which will decide their UEFA Champions League knockout round fate.
