Jurgen Klopp looks at bigger picture after frustrating week for Liverpool

The 1-1 draw at home to Burnley capped eight days in which they were hammered 5-0 at Manchester City and conceded a late lead to draw on their Champions League return to Sevilla in midweek.

With a Carabao Cup tie at Leicester on Tuesday Klopp made seven changes against the Clarets but despite that he saw signs that the squad he has built can have a successful season despite recent dropped points.

"We made seven changes but we were still really fluent, (playing) offensive football, dominant football," said the German, after watching his side have 35 shots to their opponents' five and enjoy 71 per cent possession.

"Yes, result-wise (it is frustrating) but honestly I am as a person not like this. If I can get over the few more than unlucky situations then it is my job to see the performance.

"We reacted really well and why we feel so disappointed or frustrated is because we see what this team can do.

"Now we have to use this quality consistently. We could have won pretty much all our games so far when you think about the performance.

"We didn't win all and we lost one really high but it was a strange game, we didn't perform from the first second like someone would expect when you lost 5-0.

Defensive errors have been the hot topic all week and another misunderstanding in the back four allowed Scott Arfield to smash home a half-volley after Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan failed to deal with Robbie Brady's looping header into the penalty area.

"The game plan wasn't to sit back and let them have 35 shots as we wanted to create as much as we can but sometimes the game plans are like that.
