Jurgen Klopp has revealed the tactical changes he made that were crucial to Liverpool’s win over Burnley.
The Reds turned it around to get the win after Jack Cork put Burnley ahead.
James Milner got the equaliser before Roberto Firmino put the Reds in front.
Xherdan Shaqiri would then secure all three points with a late goal, keeping Liverpool’s unbeaten run going.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Jurgen Klopp revealed the changes that got the Reds all three points, specifically Sturridge moving centrally.
The first half was just the start, we made life difficult for ourselves.
You saw it, Joel (Matip) had two or three passes where you could see he hasn’t played for a while. Alberto (Moreno) needed time, Div (Origi) needed time, Daniel (Sturridge) needed time, Shaq (Shaqiri) was not involved.
And then we needed to change Milly (to left-back) and stuff like that.
Burnley had a specific plan, to be really aggressive in the challenges. So each ball they won, even if it was a throw for us it helped them, and didn’t help us mood-wise.
I was really happy for half-time, we could adjust a few things tactically. I told the boys I shouted a lot first half but I was not angry, I knew it would be a bit rusty. That’s how it is with a lot of changes.
But now we were warm and we could use it with Daniel in a more central position and with Div and Shaq more involved.
If we could make that more clear then we would immediately have better options. Then you concede the goal, I didn’t see it back but everybody asks about offside and other things.
Reacting like we did at a tough place like Turf Moor, that’s special. Milly was outstanding anyway, really good performance, especially physically, and he scored that one.
The Reds take on Bournemouth this Saturday, with Klopp’s side looking to continue their good run.
