EPL: Mane, Firmino Score As Liverpool Keep Pace With Man City
Liverpool are aware they cannot afford anymore slips hence they got the job done against Burnley in Sunday’s Premier League clash at Anfield.
The Reds survived scares at either end of the game to beat Burnley 4-2 at Anfield on Sunday and maintain pace with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
Ashley Westwood scored direct from a corner to give the Clarets a shock lead but Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane turned the match around before the half-hour mark.
Firmino and Mane each scored again in the second period, the Senegalese finally killing Burnley off after Johan Berg Gudmundsson set up a nervy finish in stoppage time.
Liverpool are now one point behind Man City and will be above them by the time the champions next play in the Premier League, if they can beat Fulham.
Meanwhile, Burnley are only two points above the relegation zone after a third consecutive defeat.
