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.
