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
  • Lazio have won four of their last five matches in all competitions
Expert verdict
Lazio won the Coppa Italia last Wednesday after two late goals helped them see off Atalanta in the final and they can win their final league match at home comfortably. Bologna have virtually pulled clear of danger with three wins in their previous four games but they all came at home and their record on the road leaves a lot to be desired. They have won only two of their 18 away league fixtures and lost the reverse 2-1 in October.
