Liverpool's Joe Gomez taken off on stretcher against Burnley with ankle injury

Alisson redeemed himself in stoppage time with a great save from Mee's header before launching the move that led to Liverpool's third goal when Xherdan Shaqiri swept home a Salah-inspired move to leave the Clarets only off the bottom only on goal difference after taking two points from the last possible 24. Liverpool enters the contest in second place in the Premier League standings, and can cut Manchester City's lead to two points with a win. I said after the first challenge, I don't know who did it, sliding tackle from six or seven yards, getting the ball, everybody likes it, I said to the ref "it's no foul but please tell them you can not do that".

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. It was no foul but you have to be careful if you're going in at full speed. Aggression is a part of football.

"There were a lot of situations, challenges".

The 21-year-old was tended to by medical staff before he was stretchered off the pitch with the injury, which the club say they will assess the seriousness of in the coming days.

The hosts had the ball in the net as half-time approached, but Ashley Barnes' fine first-time 18-yard volley into the top corner from Robbie Brady's free-kick was correctly ruled offside.

"The boy with the ball is a bit unlucky because what can happen is what happened to Joe Gomez".

The Liverpool manager said: "I don't regret it in a way that it should not have happened".

"The referees have to make sure it doesn't happen". Because you get the player as well. It's all good. I think he has scored seven so far in the league. You've got to, you know, put a marker on the game - not only with good tackles, but also with good play.

Seven changes seemed a surprise from the Liverpool boss, however the vast majority of Premier League teams did make rotation the mid-week keyword. 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. "Second half, flawless reaction and really happy with three points".
