Emre Can strike keeps Liverpool in the hunt for top four

A fine strike from Emre Can from outside of the area saw Liverpool come from behind to defeat Burnley 2-1 at Anfield on Sunday.

Liverpool dominated possession but it was Burnley who took the lead when Ashley Barnes turned in an early cross from Matt Lowton.

The home side struggled to break down the opponents, who were happy to sit back and hold onto the lead, which they managed until the very end of the half when Georginio Wijnaldum finished from close-range.

In the second half, Emre Can’s excellent strike from distance put his side ahead, a minute after Philippe Coutinho was subbed for Ben Woodburn.

Liverpool move one point behind Manchester City, staying in fourth, while Burnley stay in 12th, missing the chance to move into the top half and break their points record for a Premier League season.
