The Reds’ seven-point table lead may be gone, but they aren’t quitting the fight for their first Premier League era top flight title.
“We played our game,” Klopp said. “The first Burnley goal was maybe a little bit of the wind. In most countries it would not be allowed that goal. You cannot treat the goalie like that in the six-yard box.”
Klopp also had a lot of praise for Adam Lallana, who he branded the best player on the pitch. Lallana’s 77 minutes account for his second-longest appearance of the season.
