No one was happy with the result of the Burnley game on Saturday. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Liverpool come away with anything less than three points when they play at home in the league.

Fabinho understands the disappointment when the Reds only managed to grab one point at home against Sean Dyche’s men.

“Yes, I think in general we played a very good game,” he said. “We created very good chances to score, their ‘keeper Pope made very good saves as well. The intensity was good so unfortunately the result is not a win but we keep going.”

Nick Pope put in a heroic performance, much to the annoyance of the team and the fans. He’s the only reason that Burnley only went into halftime down by one.

“It’s hard to play against a team like Burnley because they have very good things like [being] very strong on set-pieces and we know we had to have very good concentration. It’s like this but you have to find the spaces to try always but today was not our best day maybe,” Fabinho continues.

It’s hard to stress how much the magic of Anfield is tied to the supporters in the Kop losing their voices to cheer on the Reds and intimidate their opponents. Without them there, it’s just a football pitch.
