Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope delighted with personal form for Liverpool draw

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope was proud of his performance for their 1-1 draw at Liverpool.

Pope made his full Premier League debut at Anfield in September, 2017 to announce his arrival on the big stage.

And another outstanding performance underlined his progress towards the top of the goalkeeping pile as Burnley hit back to draw 1-1 and stop Liverpool's run of 24 successive home league wins.

“I was fortunate enough to come here on my full debut and get a point, so it was nice to come back and make some more good memories," said Pope who limited the Reds to a one-goal half-time lead before Jay Rodriguez's 69th-minute leveller for the Clarets.

“The lads in front of me work so hard – it's nice to help out now and again!

“A lot of the time they're doing the work for me, so it was nice to get a bit of the action.

“When you go to the big teams you expect to be involved more, away from home at the champions who are full of confidence.

“But we're not low on confidence ourselves. We came here as a group, maybe not expecting a point but definitely looking for something from the game.

“That's the way it's been since January for us. We really feel we are going into every game with a chance of getting something."
