EPL Match Summary; “Georginio Wijnaldum and Emre Can were on target as Liverpool came from behind to beat Burnley 2-1 at Anfield.
Burnley got off to a fine start when Matt Lowton threaded a diagonal through-ball beyond the Liverpool defence which Ashley Barnes prodded in with seven minutes gone.
Liverpool struggled to find their momentum but were level on the stroke of half-time thanks to Wijnaldum, who controlled Divock Origi’s cross and side-footed in the equaliser.
The winner came when Can unleashed a low drive from distance that eluded Tom Heaton and earned Liverpool a victory that takes them to within a point of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur and five clear of Arsenal, in fifth.”
