Liverpool moved back to within a point of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League with a 4-2 win over Burnley.

Things did not start well for Liverpool as they found themselves a goal down inside seven minutes when Ashley Barnes scored from a corner.

Burnley’s lead lasted less than 15 minutes, though, as Roberto Firmino tapped home to level the scores. The Reds then had their lead before the 30-minute mark as Sadio Mane curled home a loose ball.

Firmino added another to his tally when he converted another loose ball in the Burnley box. A late goal Johann Gudmundsson put the pressure on before Mane rounded Tom Heaton to secure all three points.
