Liverpool 9-4 for league title after Burnley win

Liverpool reduced Manchester City's lead at the top of the Premier League back to one point after coming from behind to beat Burnley 4-2 at Anfield.

Ashley Westwood's controversial early opener straight from a corner gave Burnley a shock lead when Reds goalkeeper Alisson appeared to have been fouled, but Liverpool fought back for a vital victory and are 9-4 to land the Premier League title with City drifting slightly to 4-11.

Roberto Firmino equalised after 19 minutes and the Reds were ahead at the break thanks to Sadio Mane's strike.

Firmino added a third in the second half and Liverpool deserved their win despite Johann Gudmundsson's injury-time goal setting up a tense finish before Mane settled any late nerves.

Burnley, 17th and two points clear of the bottom three, are 4-1 to be relegated.

Key stats
  • Tammy Abraham has scored in five of his last seven starts for Aston Villa.
Expert verdict
Aston Villa have lost just two of their last 15 matches and valid excuses can be made for both defeats. Dean Smith made wholesale changes with the playoffs in mind for their 2-1 loss to champions Norwich on the final day, while they lost the second leg of semi-final at West Brom despite having 73 per cent possession and winning the shot count 24 to ten. They are full of confidence and should be more determined than ever after last season’s playoff final heartbreak.
