FIRMINO, MANE SCORE AS LIVERPOOL DEMOLISH BURNLEY 4-2

Premier League giants, Liverpool, on Sunday, March 10, returned to winning ways after defeating Burnley 4-2 at Anfield to keep their title hopes alive.

The Reds were desperate to cart away all the three points before their fans after dropping points against rivals, Everton, in their last Premier League clash played at Goodinson Park.

As such they made no mistake against their visitors as they dominated proceedings in the opening exchanges of the encounter.

Be that as it may, the Clarets still took an early lead within just six minutes of game play via Ashley Westwood who beat Alisson with his right-footed corner to make it 1-0.

However, the lead was short lived as Roberto Firmino restored parity for Liverpool in the 19th minute, with the Brazilian tapping home from a yard out. Sadio Mane made it 2-1 ten minutes later, sweeping a curling effort into the corner beyond Heaton.

In the second half Firmino continued with his attacking heroics that eventually paid of in the 68th minute as he bagged a brace from Burnley’s defensive lapse to put the game beyond the visitors.

The hosts however survived a stoppage time scare as Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson strike nearly brought the visitors back to the game.

Mane went on to cap Liverpool’s victory with a powerful shot moments later to add to his tally.

Before the Sunday tie, Jurgen Klopp’s men had dropped nine points in their eight league matches since the turn of the year, as they remain second on the log with 73 points, one behind leaders, Manchester City.

Continentour.com.ng earlier reported that Liverpool returned to winning ways after thrashing Watford 5-0 in their Premier League mid-week clash at Anfield.

Sadio Mane and Virgil Van Dijk both scored brace, while Divock Origi produced one more for the Reds.

Meanwhile, Trent Alexander-Arnold had a hand in three of the five goals the Anfield outfit put in the back of the net during the game.
