GOAL! Equaliser from James Milner, skimming a low shot through a forest of legs past Joe Hart.
Liverpool are going the set piece route, and are tempting Burnley defenders into nodding the ball ominously towards the goal.
- GoalJack CorkBurnley
GOAL! What a ridiculous goal! From a corner, half a dozen Burnley players make an effort to knock the ball over the line, Alisson fails to gather, and Jack Cork gets the final connection.

OFFSIDE! Brady swings it in and Barnes finishes it beautifully, but the flag is already up.
Free kick to Burnley after a foul from Matip.
Very deep corner from Liverpool, the ball bounces around in the box with nobody really attacking it or clearing it.

Corner to Burnley.
Mee gets his torso in the way as Origi and Keita combine well down the left to threaten once more.
Virgil Van Dijk tries to get his head on a cross from a Milner corner, but fails to direct it.
Moreno is down now after a tangle with Bardsley.
Clever idea from Sturridge, flicking it through from the edge of the box, but there's a bit much on it for Moreno to reach.
- OffJoe GomezLiverpool
- OnTrent Alexander-ArnoldLiverpool
Trent Alexander-Arnold replaces Gomez.
He's sitting on the sidelines and doesn't seem to be able to stand up - the stretcher is heading over to him.
Gomez has taken a knock to the ankle after a firm challenge from Ben Mee.
Good defending from Joe Gomez, getting himself in the way of Wood's effort.
That's a good ball from Milner towards Sturridge at the back post, but the chance is wasted.
Moreno lashes a ball from the left side that's intended to be a cross, but it rises and flashes across the bar.
Then it drops for Westwood, who fires straight over the bar.
CHANCE! Barnes plays Wood through, but the ball doesn't quite drop for him and the chance is gone.
Liverpool are enjoying 88 per cent possession at the moment. Yes. Eighty-eight.
Some REALLY strong challenges going in here. Few free kicks being given but as legs tire and the pitch conditions worsen in this rain I fear some nastiness.

Liverpool report that Dejan Lovren misses out after a clash of heads in training.
