Klavan late show lifts Liverpool past Burnley

Klavan late show lifts Liverpool past Burnley

Liverpool defender Ragnar Klavan scored a dramatic injury-time victor as the Reds consolidated their place in the Premier League's top four with a 2-1 victory over Burnley on Monday.

Sadio Mane's stunning finish just past the hour put Liverpool ahead but it looked as though Burnley had secured a share of the spoils when Johann Gudmundsson stooped to head in at the far post in the 87th minute.

But, up popped Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan at the death to combine in the box and steal a 94th-minute victor at Turf Moor.

All the managers rotated players to deal with a busy festive period and Liverpool boss Juergen Klopp made seven changes, including giving Adam Lallana his first start this season, against a Burnley side who have often troubled the Merseysiders.

"A very hard game, the fixtures are really hard to take", said Klopp. "And in the other moments where it doesn't click, he scores a goal like this and it is like "wow". We did brilliant, the weather made it so hard, windy, rainy, ' said Klopp after the game. "I am really happy about the attitude we showed and that we did get the three points". It's not easy at this time, the whole team applauded Sadio Mane when he came in because we needed that goal.

Liverpool had scored 30 goals in eight away games in all competitions before this clash, but found Burnley more stubborn opposition.

"Over the 90 minutes, with all respect to Burnley and the performance and the season they are having, it was a deserved three points".
