Report: Emre Can strike secures victory over Burnley

12th March 2017

Liverpool maintained their top-four pursuit with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Burnley at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

The visitors took an early lead as Ashley Barnes diverted Matthew Lowton’s low cross beyond Simon Mignolet after just seven minutes.

The Reds drew level via Georginio Wijnaldum with the final act of the first half when he lashed a loose ball inside the area into the back of the net from close range.

And Emre Can’s precise long-range drive secured the three points for Liverpool just after the hour when he slotted into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

The key points…

  • Barnes put visitors into early lead.
  • Wijnaldum levelled with last kick of first half.
  • Can fires Reds ahead with low drive from distance.
  • Reds remain fourth, a point behind Man City and five ahead of Arsenal.

The team news…

Liverpool made one change to the side deployed against Arsenal last time out, with Divock Origi replacing the injured Roberto Firmino in attack.

Meanwhile, Dejan Lovren was ruled out due to a back injury sustained in a collision in training on Saturday, while Harry Wilson was named on the bench.
