BURNLEY 1-3 LIVERPOOL
It's all over! Liverpool come from behind to reduce the gap to Manchester City to two points. Jack Cork fired Burnley deservedly ahead on 54 minutes but a quick-fire double from James Milner and Roberto Firmino overturned the lead before Xherdan Shaqiri wrapped up the points in stoppage-time. Stay tuned for highlights!
GOAL! BURNLEY 1-3 LIVERPOOL (Shaqiri, 90+1)
Game, set and match Liverpool! Alisson's quick thinking releases Sturridge into space and he threads a great ball forward that presents Xherdan Shaqiri was a sight of goal. The Swiss composes himself before rifling a crisp left-footed drive beyond Hart.
BURNLEY 1-2 LIVERPOOL
90: CHANCE! But Burnley's persistence pays off as Bardsley's cross to blocked behind for a corner. The corner bobbles around in the area and Mee sends a looping header towards the top corner which Alisson brilliantly hooks away.
90+1: There will be FIVE minutes of added time.
89: Liverpool playing keep ball here as Burnley's attempts to stage a late comeback fail to materialise at present.
83: SUB! Matej Vydra replaces Ashley Barnes for Burnley.
82: OFF THE
LINE! All action here as Liverpool pepper the Burnley goal in search
of a third. Salah sees a shot saved by Hart but reacts quickly to collect the
rebound. Henderson sees a shot blocked but remains in the area where his deft
back-heel is cleared off the line by Bardsley.
79: A lovely Liverpool attack so nearly leads to another chance as Henderson's through pass releases Salah, but the outstretched leg of Mee breaks up the move at the last moment.
77: Milner breaks away down the left and delivers a cross into the area which Bardsley deflects into touch for a corner, from which the Burnley defender clears at the near post.
74: Liverpool win a corner after Tarkowski blocks a cross behind. It's whipped into the near-post area but Burnley head clear.
WATCH: FIRMINO SCORES WITH FIRST TOUCH
71: SUB! Aaron Lennon replaces Robbie Brady for Burnley.
GOAL! BURNLEY 1-2 LIVERPOOL (Firmino, 69)
Stunning from Liverpool as they overturn Burnley's lead in an instant. Alexander-Arnold receives a short free-kick and whips a brilliant ball over the Burnley defence. Van Dijk peels away to the back post to meet the cross on the stretched and sends it back across the face of the goal where Roberto Firmino - three minutes after coming on - rounds off a fine move with his first touch!
BURNLEY 1-1 LIVERPOOL
67: Van Dijk sprays a sublime diagonal pass out to Alexander-Arnold on the right flank. The full-back takes it in his stride with one touch before delivering a wicked low cross into the area which Mee scrambles away. A few signs that Liverpool are starting to find their feet here...
65: SUBS! Jurgen Klopp uses his second and third changes as Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino replace Divock Origi and Alberto Moreno.
WATCH: MILNER DRAWS LIVERPOOL LEVEL
GOAL! BURNLEY 1-1 LIVERPOOL (Milner, 62)
And just like that Liverpool haul themselves level. Origi brings the ball under control in the area before laying it off to James Milner. He rolls the ball from under his feet and drills a low effort through bodies into the bottom right-hand corner. It's a great finish, and Joe Hart had not chance. Game on!
WATCH: CORK BREAKS DEADLOCK
Should Alisson have done better?
WATCH: KEITA DENIED BY HART
GOAL! BURNLEY 1-0 LIVERPOOL (Cork, 54)
Turf Moor erupts as Burnley make the breakthrough!
It's not the prettiest goal but Sean Dyche won't care! A corner is delivered to the back post where Tarkowski heads it back into the six-yard box. The run of Wood puts Alisson off from gathering the ball at the first attempt and Barnes knocks the ball loose before he can gather at the second attempt. It bobbles free and into the path of Jack Cork, who simply slots the ball into the empty net.
BURNLEY 0-0 LIVERPOOL
52: WHAT A SAVE! Keita lines up an effort from 25 yards and catches the ball sweetly as it sails towards the top corner. Keita wheels away in celebration until a wonder save from Joe Hart tips it onto the post and behind for a corner. Stunning from the Burnley stopper.
51: Liverpool half-heartedly appeal for a penalty as as Alexander-Arnold's cross is blocked by Taylor. Liverpool are instead awarded a corner, which comes to nothing.
50: Taylor recycles a cleared corner, sending the ball back into the Liverpool area. It falls perfectly for Wood but he can only steer a header wide. It wouldn't have counter anyway, with the linesman raising his flag for offside.
49: SHOT! Burnley respond as Barnes picks up the ball in the Liverpool area and digs out a low shot. It's on target but there's not enough pace to really test Alisson.
47: CHANCE! Liverpool start the second half on the front foot as Sturridge fashions a yard of space on the edge of the area and fires a low shot through bodies which Hart tips behind for a corner.
KICK-OFF! Burnley get the second half underway at Turf Moor!
All square at the break at Turf Moor! Burnley much-improved after their recent struggles against a much-changed Liverpool side. Burnley have had the better chances and had the ball in the back of the net, only for Ashley Barnes' effort to be ruled out for offside. If things carry on like this, it won't be long under the likes of Salah and Firmino are introduced.
45: There will be ONE minute of added time at Turf Moor.
44: Moreno and Shaqiri combine in the final third but the Swiss is unable to bring the return under control as the ball runs into touch.
WATCH: BARDSLEY GOES CLOSE
41: NO GOAL! Brady whips another great free-kick into the Liverpool area which is met this time by Ashley Barnes. He volleys a stunning effort first time past Alisson but the offside flag correctly chalks it off, with the forward mistiming his run.
WATCH: HART SAVES VAN DIJK HEADER
36: CLOSE! Wood's deflected 20-yard strike loops over the Liverpool goal as Burnley mount an attack of their own. Van Dijk clears the resulting corner as far as Bardsley who unleashes a sweetly-struck 25-yard effort which whistles inches wide of Alisson's right-hand post.
33: It's been a difficult season for Burnley at home and away but the Turf Moor faithful are making a racket tonight in response to their team's dogged start to this game.
29: CHANCE! Milner's in-swinging corner finds Van Dijk in space at the near post but his header is straight at Hart, who makes the save look comfortable.
29: Alexander-Arnold has been lively since replacing Gomez, with the full-back winning a corner at the end of a purposeful run.
27: Bardsley launches himself into a challenge with Moreno. He goes in high over the ball but avoids punishment as his studs are not showing.
25: Milner drills a low ball in from the left which Sturridge flicks into the path of Moreno, but the full-back but checks his run and is unable to take it in his stride.
24: SUB! First change for Liverpool as Trent Alexander-Arnold replaces the injured Joe Gomez.
22: Gomez looks set to succumb to the injury he's sustained. A stretcher has been sent out to take him back to changing room, while Trent Alexander-Arnold is stripped and ready to enter the field.
20: Gomez chases a long ball from Henderson but gets clattered by Mee the Burnley captain prevents him from crossing with a full-bloodied tackle. Gomez slides down the bank behind the touchline and stays down in quite some pain. Medical staff are tending to the full-back, who looks to have injured his ankle.
18: Burnley clear Milner's cross but Liverpool work the ball back to the midfielder on the left. He teases an in-swinging ball to the back post towards Sturridge, but the striker's miscontrol sends the ball into touch.
17: Sturridge picks up the ball from Henderson and goes to ground under a challenge from Bardsley. Contact appears minimal but Liverpool are awarded a free-kick 20 yards from goal.
14: Keita floats a great ball over the Burnley defence which finds Moreno in space behind Bardsley. With few options available, the left-back fires a cross-come shot towards goal which narrowly spins over the target.
12: CHANCE! Burnley have their tails up here and Liverpool are on the back foot. Bardsley floats a great forward which Barnes flicks over Matip to Wood in space. The New Zealander has a clear run to goal, but he can't take the ball in his stride as Liverpool scramble the ball to safety.
11: Taylor plays a great ball down the left wing which looks to have played Wood through on goal, but the offside flag incorrectly comes to Liverpool's rescue.
