Liverpool face another must-win match in their quest for Champions League football when they travel to Turf Moor to take on Burnley on Wednesday.
Alisson’s dramatic last-minute winner at West Brom put the Reds just a point adrift of the top four ahead of the penultimate round of fixtures, with third-placed Leicester’s game against fourth-placed Chelsea on Tuesday leaving everything to play for.

Sean Dyche’s men have gone 10 games without a win on home turf but can be backed at 9/1 (10.00) to give the returning fans something to cheer about by signing off with a shock victory.

The Clarets have taken four points from the last two encounters between the sides and are under no pressure as they look to put in a strong display for the supporters finally back in the stadium.
