Turf Moor win proves Liverpool can handle pressure, says Jordan Henderson

We beat Everton 3-1 home and away in my first season at Liverpool and the noise at Anfield was unreal, so it was always going to be bedlam when Divock Origi hit the victor.

England global Gomez was substituted after 23 minutes of the 3-1 victory at Turf Moor following a robust tackle from Burnley's Ben Mee and will miss up to six weeks of action with a fracture to the lower left leg. By fining him, are we now saying we don't want to see this from managers any more?

The England defender was hurt in the first half of the Premier League fixture following a tackle from Ben Mee and had to be substituted in the 23rd minute at Turf Moor.

An early start at Bournemouth on Saturday means the Reds could overtake their rivals, who have an evening kick-off at fourth-placed Chelsea, but the German does not believe that will have much effect.

Klopp and Sean Dyche had a somewhat spiky exchange at the final whistle, and, asked about it afterwards, Dyche merely said: "I just said "well done".

Lovren was not able to face either Everton or Burnley, and Klopp has revealed that the centre-back is still not ready to return to action.

"If that has gone, or the suggestion is you're not allowed to make those tackles that our lads made last night, and it's been replaced by cheating, I absolutely am happy to be old-fashioned".

Thank you to you all for your kind messages and well wishes.

"He would probably say he is OK but I think it is responsible we have an eye on that". It's a good base and we have to keep going.

"[It's] a bit, I would say, lucky because it could have been worse".

"At half-time he (Klopp) just said we have to be more in the game, more lively in the game, and to win the ball more because a lot of times we played not forward but back".
