Jack Cork put Burnley ahead with a tap-in after Liverpool failed to clear a corner nine minutes after half-time.

Milner equalised eight minutes later with a low strike from outside the area after good work by Divock Origi.

Roberto Firmino, a substitute along with Mohamed Salah, put Liverpool in front on 69 minutes from Virgil van Dijk's pass, before Xherdan Shaqiri added a third from Salah's pass in stoppage time.

Liverpool are in second on 39 points, while Burnley remain 19th on nine.
