Football: Liverpool keen to back up Arsenal win at Burnley

LONDON, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 20th Augst,2016) - Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool travel to nearby Burnley on Saturday eager to prove their opening weekend 4-3 win away to Arsenal was no flash in the pan. Raising their game against English football's established powers has been something successive Liverpool teams have had no problem in doing. But the five-times European champions have remarkably not won the English title since the advent of the Premier League, with the last of their once record 18 championships coming back in 1990 -- still the days of the old First Division. However, it is matches at clubs such as newly-promoted north-west rivals Burnley that have often proved Liverpool's undoing in pursuit of title glory.

Klopp is aware of that weakness and says his side must improve on their performance against Arsenal if they are not to slip up. "A few things were really nice, a few others not too nice.

There are a lot of things to improve," said Klopp. "I know about Burnley's home record and they are really strong and confident at home." Klopp could be without forward Sadio Mane, who has a shoulder injury, but has the likes of Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge standing by in case the Senegalese international, who marked his Reds Premier League debut against Arsenal with a goal, is not passed fit.
