At work during this. Hope we smash them.

Think Burnley have a fair few injuries. Interesting that they only made one sub against West Ham too. I wouldn't say that would be ideal preparation for a trip to Anfield for a side not used to playing two games a week

What a save that is from Pope, denying Salah.

What a save from Pope. I wonder if he’s close to starting for England, with his form being pretty good and Pickford’s wobbly form over the year.

I'm happy with either but Pope is edging it for me right now.

It’s hard to argue against Pickford not being the England #1 tbh, because while he’s not been as good at Everton lately... he’s never really ever looked bad for England. There’s something to be said about stability, especially at the back, in international football. I think for England we’d be wanting Maguire, Gomez (probably, right?) and Pickford/Pope being as comfortable and familiar with each other as possible. Pickford’s got the edge there as he’s been a really good starting keeper for England.

But it’s hard to argue against Pope not getting more chances based on merit. I think he’s been the best English keeper this season. I do think being the England keeper may require a different skill set than being Burnley’s keeper.

Pope saving Burnley's arses again.

Very defensive from Burnley and looking to break on the counter with 2 snails up front.

Goal Liverpool!

Robertson heads in over Pope after running in behind from the right. Nice cross to him.

Nice save again from Pope, but moments later a nice header from Robertson.

Pope really is doing his best to convince me he should be the England #1

That's a superb header from Robertson. Great ball by Fabinho too

I agree with your earlier post on the subject. England I think have jumped ship on some of their previous keepers a bit early.

It's a superb finish for anyone but extra good for a left back.

Tbf we’ve not had many great keepers since Seaman. David James was the best... and he was nicknamed Calamity James xD - and some England keepers never had any business playing for the national side (Rob Green).

True but keeping is a confidence game. Being spat out from the England setup after initial hype has a self fulfilling prophecy effect imo.

For some reason some of our keepers, like Robinson and Hart, drop off in quality pretty massively at their clubs before they got the axe with England though.

I’m also not saying Pickford should never play for England again. But Pope’s form this season is certainly a consideration for Southgate now, or at least it should be imo.

He’s pretty much kept Burnley still in this with a number of high quality saves against some very good shots.

If you were choosing a new England keeper now it would be hard to argue against Pope or even Henderson ahead of Pickford. It's true though that Pickford's England form has saved him and it would seem pretty unjustified to drop him until he's actually had a bad game for England. I actually think getting dropped from the England starting lineup could be the best tonic for his recent club form but I also fear that he has the double curse of playing for Everton and being England number one so his career's probably ruined already.

Anyway, so that I'm not fully off topic, a nice fat blank from Mane and Salah would be welcome for FPL purposes.

Henderson should be ahead of Pickford.

He’s been a brilliant captain for us, but I’ve never seen him in goal.

Pickford’s also got much better distribution than Pope imo, which is a big thing to consider with England... since we’d be having more of the ball than Burnley.

I went for a piss and they equalised :(

Wow that looked like a bad challenge in the area on Robertson. Not sure the Burnley player got the ball? Need to see a replay.

Salah should be scoring that.

Yeah Salah should have scored that.

Nick Pope with the best goalkeeping performance I’ve seen against us in a very long time. Easy man of the match.

Also Dyche is underrated and deserves to be at a club with a bit more resources so we can see how good of a manager he really is, imo

Disappointing for that winning home run to come to an end but it has to at some point, then I'd rather when it doesn't really matter (even though I did really want 19/19 at home). Should have had a penalty after they'd equalised I think too

Apparently would have been the first time a team has gone 100% at home in a league season since Sunderland in the Queen Victoria era. Not sure of year exactly as don't know if it was mentioned but my word, what a record that would have been to break.
