After dispatching title rivals Arsenal in ruthless fashion before the global break, the Reds crashed to a 5-0 defeat at Manchester City before being held to a 2-2 draw by Sevilla at Anfield in the Champions League.

Sevilla regained their composure after the interval and snatched a point when substitute Luis Muriel found Correa, who neatly sorted out his feet and swept the equaliser past Loris Karius.

He confirmed the Belgium global is his first-choice for Premier League matches, while Trent Alexander-Arnold could return at right-back.

Clarets were awful on the road last season and collected a total of four points from their away games.

Heaton, 31, is set to be missing for around four months after he sustained the blow in Burnley's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last weekend and Pope will start at Anfield.

The Reds will host Burnley in their next Premier League fixture at Anfield on Saturday.

Klopp, whose side lost 5-0 at Manchester City on Saturday, said he was happy with most of what he saw but rued the two goals conceded.

"I still think we could have strengthened, without a doubt", Thompson told Sky Sports earlier this week.

The 22-year-old keeper proceeded by praising Salah and the rest of the Liverpool forwards saying: "We have a lot of speed up front with Sadio and Mo, and even the players that come in now - we have a quality bench".

"Roberto (Firmino) has already played left wing, Phil has played there and Alex (Oxlade-Chamberlain) can play there". "We're disappointed not to take three points", conceded the skipper, knowing full well that a hard job just got that much tougher.

The game could also mark the return to league action for Philippe Coutinho after he made his first appearance of the season as a sub in midweek.

Both opposition goals came from defensive mistakes. "It's really interesting to play them because they are always on a really high level, since I've known them". We could have scored more often but if we continue playing like this, we will get points.

"However, in the second half when a similar thing took place, the ball came to me and we were losing and chasing the game, I still chose to throw the ball away to try and make up what I had done in the first half".
