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.

Expert verdict
Liverpool begin their Champions League title defence with a return to the scene of one of the four away defeats they suffered on their way to winning last season’s competition. The Reds were beaten 1-0 at the Stadio San Paolo in the group stage last October and, as the Partenopei have lost three times in their last 19 home fixtures in the competition, their run of six defeats in eight UCL away games is a concern. However, they rarely fail to deliver in the final third, netting in all but four of their last 42 competitive matches.
