That's all for today, goodbye! 
Liverpool move above Leicester into fourth with that win and keep their Champions League hopes in their own hands. They finish their season against Crystal Palace at home. As for Burnley, they drop to 17th after making it 10 without a win at home. Their last game of the campaign is at Sheffield United.
Liverpool take a big step closer to a top-four finish with a 3-0 win over Burnley. Firmino opened the scoring just before the break when he slotted Robertson's cross past Norris. Phillips scored his first goal for Liverpool to double the lead when he thumped a header into the back of the net before clearing Mee's effort off the line at the other end. Oxlade-Chamberlain then came off the bench to wrap it up late on.
90' + 3' Liverpool break quickly on the counter and it looks like Salah is going to make it 4-0 as he has a clear run on goal from deep in Burnley's half. He sets himself for a shot on the right of the box, but Taylor recovers brilliantly to poke it away from him at the last second.
K. Tsimikas
S. Mané
90' + 2' Final change for Liverpool now as Klopp brings on Tsimikas to replace Mane.
90' Burnley are still looking for a late consolation here, but Tarkowski ends up playing a hopeful long ball over the top towards Gudmundsson. It's too high for him and Robertson is happy to see it out of play.
A. Robertson
88' Robertson got his head up before squaring the ball to Oxlade-Chamberlain on the edge of the box to register his second assist of the game.
A. Oxlade-Chamberlain
88' OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN SCORES! He dropped back after the corner was cleared before being played in by Robertson. He dribbled past Taylor, wrongfooting the defender twice, opening up space and drilling a low shot past Norris at his near post. 3-0 Liverpool! 
J. Milner
G. Wijnaldum
86' Liverpool are using the stoppage in play to make their second change as Milner comes on in place of Wijnaldum.
86' Brownhill is down now and he's holding his foot after being caught by Phillips. He's quickly back up after getting treatment though and will be able to carry on.
84' Williams has stayed down holding his head after an accidental collision with Vydra when they both went for the ball. He's getting treatment on it and it looks like he'll be able to carry on.
82' Taylor flicks the ball past Alexander-Arnold on the left and swings an early cross into the box. Both Wood and Vydra made runs to the near post though and it's over both of their heads and cleared by Robertson on the opposite side.
A. Oxlade-Chamberlain
Roberto Firmino
81' Liverpool are making their first change now and it's Firmino that's making way, with Oxlade-Chamberlain on in his place.
80' The hosts are still on the ball here, but they're struggling to get in behind Liverpool. McNeil pulls away into space on the left again and curls a good cross in. There's no one waiting in the middle though and Phillips heads it away.
78' Burnley are still pushing to get themselves back into the game and are enjoying a good spell of possession. Westwood goes long and picks out Vydra on the edge of the box, but he can't control it so Williams hooks it clear.
M. Vydra
J. Cork
76' Burnley are making their first change of the game and it's an attacking one as Vydra comes on to replace Cork.
74' Phillips is the 15th different player to score a Premier League goal for Liverpool this season (excluding own goals), with only Chelsea and Manchester City posting more different scorers in the competition this term (16 each).
72' McNeil turns and plays an early cross upfield for Wood. He holds off Williams to get into the box, but can't sort out his feet quick enough for a shot, which gives the defender a chance to get back and Burnley end up winning a corner.
70' GREAT SAVE! Alexander-Arnold peels off the back of Taylor to get on the end of Thiago's cross and he sends his header back across goal. Norris tips it over the bar with his fingertips, but it wouldn't have counted anyway as the offside flag goes up against him.
68' OFF THE LINE! It's a brilliant corner by McNeil which Mee heads on at the far post. It's over Alisson's head, but Phillips is waiting just behind him to clear the effort off the goal line.
66' It's a great throughball from Fabinho into Salah and it looks like he's in on goal. Taylor recovers well though and just holds off the Egyptian long enough to poke the ball out of his path before he can have a shot.
64' SAVE! Nobody is picking up Brownhill through the middle and Wood flicks on Lowton's cross to pick him out. He hits his shot first time before Phillips can close him down, but it's straight at Alisson, who holds onto it.
62' Lowton floats his free-kick into the box from just inside Liverpool's half and Tarkowski rises highest to nod it down. He's looking for Brownhill, but he gets caught on his heels, giving Thiago chance to clear his lines.
60' That was Phillips' first ever goal for Liverpool in his 20th appearance for the club.
58' McNeil swings another early cross into the box from the left, but Robertson's clearance goes straight to Westwood on the edge of the box. He manages to dig out a shot but hits it into the ground and it bounces harmlessly into Alisson's gloves.
56' Brownhill plays an early throughball into the box for Wood, but a heavy first touch gifts it to Robertson. He plays it back to Alisson, but McNeil is following it in and the keeper just manages to clear his lines in time.
54' Burnley just can't get out of their own half at the moment as Liverpool push forward again. Mane gets in behind Lowton on the left again, but this time, Cork is back covering and he blocks the cross.
S. Mané
52' Mane has two Burnley defenders with him, but a quick burst of pace gets him to the byline where he puts a wonderful cross back into the middle.
N. Phillips
52' PHILLIPS SCORES! The initial corner is cleared by Lowton but Liverpool keep hold of it and Mane pulls it back into the middle. It's over Williams, but Phillips is waiting behind him to thump his header at goal. Norris gets a hand to it, but can't stop it from crossing the line. 2-0 Liverpool!
50' SALAH! He just drifts away from Taylor on the right of the box and Mane squares it to him. Salah has time to take a touch before firing his shot at the near post, but he sends it into the side netting.
49' Louds shouts from the Burnley fans now for a penalty after Gudmundsson went to ground in the box. Replays show that he wasn't caught by Wijnaldum and actually tripped over the ball though and the referee waves play on.
48' Mane makes a late run off the back of Tarkowski to get into the far post and Firmino tries to curl it into him. Burnley have a lot of bodies back in the box though and his pass is blocked by Mee.
46' SAVE! It's a quick start to the second half from Burnley as Wood gets away from Phillips and into the box. He decides to have a go, curling his shot towards the far post, but Alisson holds onto it.
46' Liverpool get us back underway for the second half! 
As things stand, this result takes Liverpool above Leicester City into fourth place. The visitors have created a lot of chances without really testing Norris, which Klopp will want to change. Burnley have caused problems at the other end though and Dyche will be happy to stick with his game plan to see if they can get back into it.
Firmino's goal gives Liverpool a 1-0 lead over Burnley at half-time. Both sides made a slow start and have only had one shot on target each. McNeil forced a good save out of Alisson after Wood sent a brilliant chance into the side netting. At the other end, Thiago came close, but Firmino broke the deadlock late on when he slotted Robertson's cross into the bottom corner.
45' Burnley are trying to get upfield as quickly as possible when they win the ball back, but their passing is sloppy. Cork spins and plays an early throughball into the box, but it's nowhere near Wood and Phillips clears his lines.
A. Robertson
43' Yet again, Robertson is given too much space down the left and he fizzes a dangerous low cross into the box to set up the goal.
Roberto Firmino
43' LIVERPOOL LEAD! Robertson's cross is missed by everyone in the middle of the box and Firmino makes a late run into the area to reach it. Cork spots him too late and the Brazilian slots it past Norris and into the bottom corner. 1-0 Liverpool! 
41' CHANCE! Robertson swings yet another great cross into the box and Williams nods it down for Phillips in the middle. He has time to take a touch before volleying a shot on goal, but it's always rising and it flies just over the bar.
39' SAVE! Wood can't sort his feet out quickly enough to have a shot, but Burnley manage to keep hold of the ball and get it to McNeil just outside the box. He sets himself before firing it at the near post and Alisson dives to push it away.
37' Alexander-Arnold steps up to take the free-kick and despite being a long way out, he goes for goal. He curls his effort up and over the wall, but there isn't enough dip on it and it flies into the stands.
36' Mane spins away from Westwood before driving towards the box and the midfielder scrambles back to try and reach him. He ends up clipping Mane though and Liverpool have a free-kick in a good position.
34' It's patient play from Liverpool as they move it out from the back, but they're struggling to get in behind Burnley again. They're switching it from left to right, but aren't having any luck in opening up some space.
32' McNeil swings another good cross in from the left and Wood attacks it but ends up clattering into Alisson. Brownhill brings down the loose ball but doesn't have time to have a shot before the whistle goes for a free-kick.
30' CHANCE! Liverpool are in again here and Robertson plays another good ball forward for Salah to chase. He takes it away from Tarkowski but then leans back as he takes the shot and fires it high over the bar.
29' THIAGO! The Spaniard plays a one-two with Salah just inside the box and opens up a pocket of space for himself at the post. He drills it across goal from a tight angle as Norris rushes out, but it's just wide of the target.
28' Liverpool go for a more direct approach this time, with Phillips playing it forward for Robertson and he swings an early cross into the box. He's looking for Salah in the middle, but Mee makes an important interception to touch it away from him.
26' CLOSE! Lowton plays a wonderful early ball into the box from his own half and Gudmundsson lets it go for Wood. He's goal side of Williams and he hits the shot on the half-volley, but it swerves just wide of the near post.
24' Robertson drives forward down the left again and he switches it to Thiago, who is running into space on the edge of the box. He tries to bring it down with his first touch, but gets it all wrong and ends up tripping over it, allowing Taylor to come away with the ball.
22' The Burnley fans and players aren't happy as they think Salah handballed it just inside the box, but the referee is happy to let the Liverpool attack go on. Alexander-Arnold swings in a good cross, but Gudmundsson shields it away from Mane at the far post.
20' McNeil keeps finding himself in a lot of space for Burnley down the left and he chooses to play an early cross into the box for Wood this time. Phillips gets ahead of the forward though and hooks it away from danger.
18' Liverpool are knocking it around in their own box and Phillips almost plays them into trouble after scuffing his pass to Fabinho. Two Burnley players are closing down the loose ball, but Fabinho just manages to flick it on in time.
16' CHANCE! It's a great backheel from Mane at the near post to pick out Firmino, who is unmarked in the middle of the box. He lets it rolls across him before hitting the shot, but he drags it wide of the target under pressure from Tarkowski.
15' Liverpool have won five of their six Premier League away games against Burnley, winning their last three at Turf Moor since a 2-0 loss in August 2016.
13' Robertson's cross is cleared by Tarkowski at the near post, but Liverpool come again as Thiago latches onto it just outside the box. He chips it over the top for Firmino, but it's just behind him and Mee clears his lines.
11' It's a loose touch from Alexander-Arnold that gifts the ball back to Wood in the middle of the field and he quickly lays it off to Gudmundsson on the right of the box. He can't control it though and Williams makes another important block.
9' The cross from McNeil on the left is too high for Wood, but the forward chases it down and manages to keep it in play at the far post. He pulls it back for Lowton, who hits it first time and Williams makes an important block to send it out for a corner.
8' Salah drives forward down the right and plays a one-two with Firmino to try and open up some space for a cross. The Brazilian plays it short back into him though and Taylor is there to intercept it for Burnley.
6' Burnley are moving the ball upfield quickly and trying to catch Liverpool out by swinging early crosses into the box. McNeil gets the better of Alexander-Arnold down the right and curls the ball into the middle, but Alisson comes out to collect it.
4' Firmino slots it into Alexander-Arnold and he cuts inside from the right before having a shot, but it's blocked by Tarkowski. Mane gets to the loose ball first, but fires wide from close range.
2' Liverpool break quickly on the counter after an early spell of pressure from Burnley and Robertson plays a lovely throughball forward for Salah. He's one-on-one with Norris, but Mee gets back just in time to block his shot.
1' Westwood gets the game underway for Burnley!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.
Burnley are looking to complete their first league double over Liverpool since the 1929-30 campaign, after they ended the Reds' 68-game unbeaten home run earlier this season.
Jurgen Klopp makes just one change to his team after their win over West Brom on Sunday. Wijnaldum is brought into the side for Jones, who drops to the bench.
Sean Dyche makes two changes to the side that lost to Leeds United last time out. He hands a Premier Debut to Norris in goal, with Gudmundsson also coming in. Peacock-Farrell and Vydra drop to the bench.
LIVERPOOL SUBS: Billy Koumetio, Divock Origi, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Xherdan Shaqiri, Neco Williams, James Milner, Adrian, Konstantinos Tsimikas.
LIVERPOOL STARTING XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Nathaniel Phillips, Rhys Williams, Andy Robertson; Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane.
BURNLEY SUBS: Anthony Driscoll-Glennon, Ashley Barnes, Jimmy Dunne, Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Lewis Richardson, Erik Pieters, Jay Rodriguez, Matej Vydra, Richard Nartey.
BURNLEY STARTING XI (4-4-1-1): Will Norris; Matthew Lowton, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor; Josh Brownhill, Ashley Westwood, Jack Cork, Johann Gudmundsson; Dwight McNeil; Chris Wood.
Liverpool's chances of earning a top-four finish are still in their own hands and they realistically need to win their last two games to secure a Champions League spot. They've won their last three outings, with Alisson scoring a last-minute winner last time out against West Brom to keep them in the hunt. They face a Burnley side that haven't won at home in their last nine matches (D5 L4), with their last win at Turf Moor coming against Aston Villa at the end of January.
