Did we deserve to win? I don't care - Klopp revels in Klavan clincher
Liverpool battled to a last-gasp 2-1 win at Burnley that left Jurgen Klopp relieved to pick up maximum points from two games in three days.
Jurgen Klopp was relieved to come away from Burnley with a hard-earned 2-1 victory as Liverpool were indebted to Ragnar Klavan's 94th-minute winner.
The Reds were without Philippe Coutinho (thigh) and Mohamed Salah (groin) at Turf Moor on Monday, but Sadio Mane's stunning opener just after the hour had them in front.
Johann Gudmundsson equalised for the Clarets in the 87th minute. However, Klavan stole in at the back post deep into stoppage time to head home from point-blank range and leave Klopp satisfied with a second win in three days following Saturday's defeat of Leicester City.
"It was a very difficult game, these fixtures are really difficult to take," Klopp said. "We did brilliant, the weather made it so hard, windy, rainy.
"Burnley are doing well, we denied them to do what they usually like to do. It took a while to score and then the next two goals were very similar.
"It was a deserved three points and if people say [otherwise], I don't care.
