Liverpool v Burnley

Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane both scored twice as Liverpool came from behind to defeat Burnley 4-2 at Anfield.

Ashley Westwood gave Sean Dyche's men the lead after just six minutes when his whipped corner flew straight into the net.

But the hosts rallied, Firmino tapping in the equaliser after Mohamed Salah's cross reached him 13 minutes later.

Sadio Mane's fine finish on 29 minutes stretched his consecutive scoring streak at Anfield to six PL matches to make it 2-1.

With 23 minutes left Firmino slotted in his second before Johan Berg Gudmondsson's stoppage-time effort gave Burnley hope.

However, Mane had the last word for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Second-placed Liverpool move on to 73 points, one behind leaders Manchester City, while Burnley lie 17th on, two points above the relegation zone.
