Liverpool boss Klopp backs Burnley to survive in Premier League relegation battle

It was a strong response from Liverpool after they fell behind against Sean Dyche's struggling team in the sixth minute.

"With regards to the lack of creativity and negative perception of Liverpool - we are one point off the top so therefore much better than we were past year when we weren't being criticised", he told Press Association Sport at a Show Racism the Red Card event at Anfield.

"It's a special atmosphere regardless but when we play against Manchester United or Everton, or in the Champions League, of course it's a bit easier to create a special atmosphere".

As Jurgen Klopp mentioned in the pre-match press conference, Liverpool need to focus on winning the remaining games and not on Manchester City's results. But they find themselves back in the second position, chasing the title favourites Manchester City who are one point ahead.

"Can they do it [and handle the pressure]?"

De Bruyne will have played in just seven of City's 30 league games this term if, as expected, he misses out against Watford. We knew it would be hard against Burnley but we felt the work we did, that's how it should be.

The Reds have recently surrendered their lead at the summit of the division following only two wins in their last six matches. The towering Dutchman has steadied Jurgen Klopp's defence and made the Reds the best defensive team in the Premier League by some distance, conceding just 15 goals in 29 games. They have also lost only once in their last five away Premier League games (W2 D2), albeit it was their last game on the road - a 2-0 loss to Newcastle at St. James' Park.

"Our only problem this week is Burnley and that's enough - we have to be really good to beat this team, Dyche is doing an fantastic job perhaps with not the best circumstances in the league".

Much criticism has been aimed at Liverpool in recent weeks, after they drew four of their last six league matches, handing over the advantage to Pep Guardiola's side in their quest for a first title in almost 29 years.

Klopp, who has been teased by rival fans for his excuses this season which have included blaming the weather like last weekend in the 0-0 Merseyside derby, felt he had to discuss the harsh wind again at Anfield after the game.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah play a limited role but score in the first half, and the Reds get three much-needed points. The trio of Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain aren't that far from competing for a first-team place. We can hopefully give them performances that they can go home and talk about the next day.
