Burnley 0-3 Liverpool

Premier League (37), Turf Moor
May 19, 2021

Goals: Firmino 43′, Phillips 52′, Oxlade-Chamberlain 88′

The Reds faced a huge game at Turf Moor, knowing that a win would enhance their chances of a final-day top-four finish.

More shaky defending and erratic finishing made for a frustrating first half, but Roberto Firmino fired home just before half-time to ease the nerves.

Nat Phillips headed Liverpool into a 2-0 lead early in the second half, scoring his first Reds goal and putting his team in control.

Burnley kept plugging away in irritating fashion in the final exchanges, but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored a big goal, in terms of goal difference, late in the day.

Here’s how Liverpool fans reacted to a big win on Twitter, Facebook and across This Is Anfield.
