“We knew before the game it would be incredibly tough and they had about 3,500 people, not on our side. The atmosphere in football is massive.

“I thought the boys dealt really well with that. They didn’t get distracted and they tried to use it because the noise is nice. We played a lot of good football stuff.

“You can’t go to Burnley and hope to win 3-0. It’s usually incredibly tight.

“We have to make sure we recover quickly. We have a thin squad in some positions. We have to wrap them in cotton wool. I can’t wait for the 10,000 fans at Anfield. Nothing is decided Palace are strong.”

Liverpool will host Crystal Palace for their final game of the 2020/21 Premier League season at Anfield on Sunday, 23 May 2021.
