Not Liverpool's best game, but a deserved victory - Mane on Burnley win

Jurgen Klopp singles out two Liverpool stars after dramatic win over Burnley

Against a rotated side missing a number of key players, the Clarets showed the kind of character that Liverpool would need to match in order to have any chance of success. After spending nearly an entire season unable to win one-goal matches, they have won 2-1 in their last two matches.

"Sadio is unbelievably important for us".

'We have everything organised, ' said the Liverpool manager following his side's 2-1 win at Burnley, in which Mane scored. But we have other players and we can count on them and they do well.

"We deserved the three points but a draw would have been absolutely OK as well and if we don't score then even Burnley would have deserved it, it was just an open game".

Following the victory Klopp told the club's website: "I was never in doubt about the character of my boys, I never thought we had a proper defence problem". I've got a few assists this season, I want to keep that going as well.

United entered the clash with the Toffees off the back of three successive league draws, which had seen them drop further behind runaway leaders Manchester City .

'I had Aubameyang [at Borussia Dortmund] and there is nothing more important than to go there'.

Player ratings: Dejan Lovren and Emre Can of Liverpool celebrate their sides second goal of the game.

They face Everton in their next outing, visiting Goodison Park on Friday night for a tasty FA Cup 3rd round meeting.

The Senegal global will travel with Reds team-mate Salah as both are on the shortlist for the Confederation of African Football's player of the year award.

Salah has scored 17 Premier League goals this season since his summer arrival from Roma and Klopp insisted his availability for the FA Cup fixture would not be affected by his attendance at Thursday's awards ceremony.
