LiveBurnley v Liverpool LIVE
Burnley will look to end a run of nine Premier League games at Turf Moor when Liverpool come to town.
And in doing so the Clarets could put a significant dent in the Reds' hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp's side kept their hopes alive in quite exhilarating fashion as goalkeeper Alisson downed West Brom with a 95th minute header from a corner.
A win for the visitors would see them climb into the top four at Leicester City's expense ahead of the final game of the season on Sunday.
Burnley won the reverse fixture 1-0 in January to end Liverpool s magnificent 68-game unbeaten run at Anfield in the top flight.
Ashley Barnes scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute.

- Burnley have lost five of their six Premier League home fixtures versus Liverpool - with the exception being a 2-0 victory in August 2016
- Chris Wood has been directly involved in 11 of Burnley’s last 14 league goals - scoring eight and setting up three
- Liverpool have collected 20 points from their last eight games in the Premier League
- Victory would see the Reds climb into the top four - at the expense of Leicester City - on goal difference
The Clarets almost get their noses in front
Miscommunication between Williams and Alisson allows Brownhill to get a sight of goal, but the defender recovers well to block.
The ball is then recycled out to McNeil who tests the Reds' Brazilian stopper with a thumping effort at his near post.
Liverpool applying the pressure
Thiago swaps passes with Salah inside the box and should score. However, he pulls his shot across Norris and wide of the far post. Salah then blazes over the bar when latching onto a ball over the top.
Big chance for Burnley
Wood has a great chance to open the scoring but, after getting goal side of Williams from a Lowton ball over the top, the striker slices wide of the near post.
Another chance for the Reds
Clever back heel from Mane inside the penalty area is turned wide by Firmino.
Chance for Burnley
McNeil gets the ball across, Wood lays the ball back for Lowton and the full back’s drive is blocked by Williams.
It should be 1-0
Mane gets across Lowton to meet Alexander-Arnold's cross, but somehow guides the ball wide from close range.
Brilliant from Ben Mee
The defender gets across to stop Mo Salah in his tracks.
And the visitors
