JUST-IN: Liverpool go fourth in EPL with crucial win against Burnley

Liverpool moved into the Premier League’s top four on goal difference with a 3-0 away win over Burnley on Wednesday night
Chelsea’s win over Leicester City on Tuesday meant Liverpool knew before kick-off that a win would be enough to take them into the top four and the visitors to Turf Moor got what they needed.

Chris Woods should have given Burnley the lead after latching on to a long ball over the top, but the striker, who had scored eight goals in his previous nine games, lashed his strike wide of the near post.

Firmino found the back of the net just before half time, with the Brazilian forward squeezing a low finish past Burnley goalkeeper Will Norris after a good overlap and cross by Andy Robertson down the left wing.

Liverpool gave themselves a two-goal cushion eight minutes into the second half as Nat Phillips got his head on the end of a Sadio Mane cross into the middle to score his first goal for the club.

James Tarkowski had a header cleared off the line by Phillips as Burnley looked for a way back into the game, but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came off the bench to finish things off with a third goal as Liverpool moved on to 66 points, ahead of Leicester City by just four goals.
