Heaton joined northwest side Burnley in the summer of 2013 and had played every league game in each of his three seasons before the last term, when he only missed three.
Liverpool dominated against Sean Dyche's team but had to come from behind with Mohamed Salah rescuing a point for Klopp after mistakes had gifted Scott Arfield the opening goal for the visitors. I am sure the talent he has got he can step into that Liverpool side. We were unlucky there a year ago, we took the lead and had them on the back foot for most of the game.
"It's not the moment where I talk about the line-up of tomorrow, but he should be ready", said the German manager, confirming that the 25-year old is in the frame to play some part.
Klopp made seven changes from the frustrating mid-week draw with Sevilla, and having received a warm reception from the Anfield crowd as a substitute that night, Philippe Coutinho made his first start since attempting to force through a move to Barcelona.
(Daniel Sturridge had the crowd on their feet after a close-quarters shot, before everyone realized he had hit the side-netting.) But, and I realize this will come as a bit of a shocker, but they couldn't get another goal before the break.
But it is hard to blame the supporters for the anxiety when they repeatedly see matches like this under Klopp. He needs to coach the players to defend better at set-pieces.
"We created moments. You can not create in each situation a finishing situation, but we did it absolutely often enough".
Liverpool's defence craves confidence and with no new blood in the dressing room, consistency looks to be an obvious route to providing it.
Liverpool allow the softest of chances, but they score the sweetest of them too.
"It doesn't feel good, that's all I can say but fortune was not wearing a Liverpool shirt today".
It's been a great start to the season for Burnley and they now sit seventh in the table after picking up points away to Chelsea and Tottenham already. It's not going to happen. Well, that theory proved to be what cost the Reds their maiden Premier League title, so one should not fool themselves.
"It's nearly subliminal at times".
"But we're not naive".
They'll still be riding after last week's win over Crystal Palace, and have only lost one match so far.
