EPL: Liverpool fight back to earn victory at Burnley

Substitute Roberto Firmino scored with his first touch as Liverpool came from behind to beat struggling Burnley and stay in touch with leaders Manchester City in the Premier League table.

Jack Cork gave the hosts a surprise lead after Alisson could not gather the ball following a corner but Jurgen Klopp’s side hit back with three goals.

James Milner equalised with a superb low finish from distance and Firmino, one of seven players left out from the side that started against Everton on Sunday, tapped home from Virgil van Dijk’s athletic cutback.

Xherdan Shaqiri ensured Liverpool moved back to within two points of Pep Guardiola’s side with a clinical counter-attack goal moments after Alisson had saved superbly to deny Ben Mee.
