The Estonian scored late on at Turf Moor to snatch all three points, becoming the first player from his country to net in the English top-flight

Ragnar Klavan has etched his name into the Premier league history books with a late goal for Liverpool at Burnley.

It looked like being a frustrating afternoon for the Reds at Turf Moor as they entered stoppage-time with the game locked at 1-1.

Klavan, though, was to have the final say with a dramatic header which snatched all three points for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

In finding the target, the Estonian defender has become the first player from his country to net in the English top-flight.

Liverpool had taken the lead at surprise package Burnley just past the hour mark through Sadio Mane.

They were then pegged back in the 87th minute through Johann Berg Gudmundsson.

With time ticking away, the Reds found a winner as Dejan Lovren flicked on a free-kick and his centre-half partner stooped at the back post to nod home.

A battling victory ensures that Liverpool open 2018 inside the Premier League’s top four, with a New Year’s Day success edging them six points clear of fifth-placed Arsenal – although the Gunners do have a game in hand.
