Jurgen Klopp was left frustrated after his Liverpool side failed to score against Burnley as they succumbed to a 1-0 loss at Anfield - breaking a run of 68 home Premier League games without defeat.
Not only did it break a historic record of the modern era, but it was also a first for many Clarets fans watching at home as they recorded their first victory at Anfield since 1974.
The win also means Burnley pulled seven points clear of the relegation places as they look ahead to an FA Cup fourth-round encounter with Fulham on Sunday.
Speaking after the match, Klopp said: “I don’t have a better word than frustrating, that’s how I feel.
“It’s actually not possible to lose the game but we even made that happen and that’s a really low point now I have to say.”
Those comments came as Liverpool failed to put the Clarets under the pressure Klopp would have wanted. Sean Dyche’s side restricted their opponents to mainly long-range efforts and crosses which were almost always met by a Burnley head.
The result has left Liverpool’s title chances hanging by a thread as they sit six points off leaders Manchester United, but it’s at the bottom of the table where the result made all the difference as Burnley climbed further away from the relegation places.

Those looking up the table, including Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham, would have been some of the few hoping Liverpool’s run remained in tow as Burnley pulled off a tremendous upset and moved further away from their relegation rivals.
And Klopp ended his frank assessment of the Burnley games by saying: “I can imagine for people it is really difficult to believe that after all that these boys [Liverpool’s players] have done in the last couple of years, that they cannot break down opponents.
“If someone took it for granted the way it was, then that was a mistake.”
