Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has reacted to their defeat to Burnley, admitting to BBC Sport that his side were not good enough in the game.

The Reds travelled to Turf Moor full of confidence following their impressive display in the 4-3 win over Arsenal on the opening day of the season.

Things did not get off to a good start for them though as Sam Vokes fired Sean Dyche’s side into an early lead.

The situation worsened when Andre Gray bagged his side’s second, which proved to be enough to get them their first win back in the Premier League.

It was a disappointing display in a poor game for the Reds, and Wijnaldum has conceded they were not good enough.

"I think Burnley created two chances and they scored two goals,” he told BBC Sport.

“We created chances but they were not big chances. It's not good today. If you don't score more than your opponent then it is always a concern. We made mistakes. It's sad. At the end of the game we have nothing."

It will now be interesting to see if this defeat sees Jurgen Klopp make a late move to significantly improve his defence in the transfer window.

Concerns were raised about their defensive abilities in the win over Arsenal and they yet again failed to prove themselves in this surprise loss.

If they are intending to be challengers for at least a top-four place this season it is a situation that will need improving and it remains to be seen if Klopp will move to do so.
