Liverpool moved into the Champions League qualifying spots after a 3-0 win at Burnley on Wednesday took them above Leicester City and into fourth place with one round of Premier League matches remaining.

Burnley vs Liverpool: Roberto Firmino struck two minutes before halftime and a Nathaniel Phillips header made it 2-0 in the 52nd minute before a superb late strike from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain secured a fourth straight win.

The victory moves Liverpool onto 66 points, ahead of fifth-placed Leicester on goal difference while Chelsea is third on 67 points.

Burnley enjoyed the better of the first half but the visitors grabbed the lead when Sadio Mane fed Andy Robertson on the left and his low cross was expertly slotted home by Firmino.

Phillips eased any lingering Liverpool nerves with a firm header at the back post from a Mane cross from the left before a fine individual effort from substitute Oxlade-Chamberlain wrapped up the win.
