Liverpool hot on City’s heels after James Milner sparks fightback at Burnley

Divock Origi scores the winner against Everton

Juergen Klopp had to bring rested stars off the bench to ensure Liverpool came from behind to beat Burnley 3-1 in the Premier League on Wednesday and move back within two points of leader Manchester City. Naby made all the difference, I think his blocked shot was the biggest chance we had in the first half. The goalkeeper could only parry, and when he dived forward to reclaim the ball Barnes got his foot in first, allowing Jack Cork to score from the ricochet.

"Joe's injured and probably not only a little bit", said Klopp after his side's victory.

Although a couple of tackles were borderline - for instance, when Phil Bardsley appeared to go over the top of the ball on Alberto Moreno - in the main Burnley just made sure they did not back out of any challenges and it had the desired effect as Liverpool could not settle. "Just be careful. Sliding six or seven yards to win the ball, these times are over and somebody needs to tell you to stop doing it".

Klopp was involved in an heated exchange with opposite number Sean Dyche during the match, and the German feels that Burnley's approach to the game contributed to Gomez's injury. When the home side took a second-half lead it looked as though they might climb out of the bottom three and leave Liverpool five adrift of the leaders, but two goals in quick succession from James Milner and Roberto Firmino, plus another in stoppage time from Xherdan Shaqiri, rescued the situation.

"I thought there were some excellent challenges tonight". The second half was a ideal reaction and I am really, really happy about the three points. You've got to win the ball, you've got to challenge against these boys. We mixed it. Not effective enough, don't get me wrong. Liverpool fullback Andy Robertson also is doubtful to play due to the dead leg he suffered in the win over Everton.

Prizes include, a trip to Old Trafford to watch Man United take on Liverpool in the Premier League, tickets to Ireland's home games in the Six Nations, All Ireland football and hurling final tickets and much more.

"We controlled the game in a lot of moments, but in the moments where we allowed Burnley to make proper tackles, it didn't look that cool".
