Liverpool Qualify For Champions League After Win Over Burnley

Liverpool set up a dramatic final-day battle to qualify for the Champions League with a vital 3-0 win at Burnley.

Thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino, Nathaniel Phillips and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Liverpool are above fifth-placed Leicester on goal difference, with the Reds on +24 and the Foxes on +20.

If Jurgen Klopp's side win their final game at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday, they should finish in the top four and salvage a difficult campaign that saw them tamely surrender the title to Manchester City.

Leicester host Tottenham on Sunday, while third-placed Chelsea, one point above Liverpool, travel to Aston Villa.

“We had to win the ‘semi-final' and we did. Nothing is decided yet but we improved our position and we have the final,” Klopp said.

“That's what we needed. It's what we deserve because this was a top performance.”
