Liverpool vs. Burnley: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool entertain Burnley on Sunday needing a result to cement a top four spot.

Liverpool produced another excellent display against one of the divisions stronger sides as they beat Arsenal last weekend.

Their 3-1 win saw them move back into the top four, with Sadio Mane among the scorers.

Burnley’s poor away record continued as they were beaten late on away at Swansea.

Fernando Llorente’s late header won the game for an in-form Swansea City side.
