“You cannot not give no away chances against Burnley, because of the physicality and the way they play. Each set piece is an incredible challenge for us, for our centre-halfs. The boys did outstandingly well.
“It was a big chance when Bobby scored, it was good football, but we had before that two massive chances that we didn’t use. But we scored that one, Nat with the header and Oxlade with a nice little football skill – a nice little reminder for him, to show how good he is.
“We have to make sure that we recover extremely quickly. Obviously we have a thin squad, especially in some positions.
“We just have to wrap them, more or less in cotton wool. And make sure that on Sunday we are ready again. We get now the support of 10,000 people at Anfield. I can’t wait actually, but I am happy that it is not tomorrow so we have a few more days. But nothing is decided.
“Crystal Palace are strong – Christian Benteke scored again today, Zaha, Ayew, Batshuayi, Towsend – you have to be really on top, it’s Premier League, rightly so. Let’s give it a proper try.”
