And Klopp insisted: "We have no problem with confidence. We didn't have a problem with confidence after the Everton game. You don't have to think that everything you write has an influence on us. It's not like that. Most of the things are not interesting to us.

"We score five and you make a big fuss and say we are the best attacking team in the world, then we score none and have an offensive problem. Today Mo Salah was the best player on the pitch and didn't score.

"We have no problem with confidence, we are in a good moment."

Liverpool had to come from behind against Burnley after Ashley Westwood scored direct from a corner in the sixth minute.

Goalkeeper Alisson appeared to be impeded as he tried to get the corner, and Klopp thought the goal should have been ruled out.

"Usually it would have been disallowed, maybe if the referee had a better view, I don't know exactly. I saw it at the first moment it's a foul and then you see the pictures and you cannot treat the goalkeeper like this.

"If Andre Marriner had a better view he probably would have whistled, I think. The referees try everything to whistle at the right moment.

"The good thing is it was early so enough time to react and turn it around, that's what we did. We had the ball pretty much all the time and had 23 shots vs four."
