Liverpool's Gomez faces six weeks out after leg fracture

The England defender was stretchered off early in the first half, following a Ben Mee challenge which infuriated manager Jurgen Klopp, and there is actually relief inside Liverpool that the injury is not more severe.

"Nobody can judge that". Because you get the player as well.

"It happened four or five times, everybody likes it, but Joe is injured, and probably not only a little bit".

Gomez has been imperious for Liverpool this season alongside Virgil van Dijk, but Liverpool will now have to enter the busy Christmas period without their young England defender. He also hit back at Klopp with reference to another first-half incident, suggesting his opposite number had failed to talk about Daniel Sturridge appearing to dive when winning a free-kick just outside Burnley's penalty area.

Determined to defend his own players from any claims of excessive aggression, Sean Dyche continued to counter the arguement Jurgen Klopp presented.

"But I don't think they can reinvent the rules".

With James experiencing the NBA Finals eight straight consecutive seasons, patience is a challenge as he's concurred this season. James, meanwhile, understands why he is being critiqued, even though he doesn't agree that he's being asked to do too much.

Klopp crticised the match referee Stuart Atwell, saying: "'I said to the referee after the first sliding tackle (made) over six or seven yards, when he got the ball and everyone liked it: "'Please, tell them they can not do that'".

"It's amusing, he didn't reference Daniel Sturridge's cheating", Dyche said a news conference on Thursday. "He plays at centre-half, he was out of position on the right, I've seen him play there before and I don't think it's his position", Schwarzer says. That was the message we got after.

"We send him our best if there is any injury but it wasn't from a bad tackle".

Dyche, however, was quick to praise his team and take a dig at Klopp's side for alleged 'cheating'.

"Our lads went about their business terrifically last night and everyone else apart from the manager seemed to agree", he added.

He said: "We have to be fearless in these games". I fancied Bournemouth to win quite comfortably.
