Burnley vs Liverpool LIVE!

Liverpool are back on top of the Premier League, for 48 hours at least. The Reds survived a second-half scare at Turf Moor to beat struggling Burnley 2-0 in a festive Boxing Day cracker in Lancashire, going ahead after only six minutes when Darwin Nunez side-footed home wonderfully from outside the box to end his 12-game club goal drought.

Liverpool absolutely bossed the first half but could not find any further breakthrough as Mohamed Salah struck the crossbar and Burnley's James Trafford made a number of strong saves, with Cody Gakpo's driven finish ruled out for a foul by Nunez on Charlie Taylor. Burnley were much better after the interval, but looked to have gone 2-0 down again when Harvey Elliott side-footed into the bottom corner.

However, that effort was chalked off controversially for offside against Salah, who looked to have been pushed by Jordan Beyer. Burnley were galvanised by that decision and had their best spell of the game thereafter, but substitute Johann Berg Gudmundsson wasted their golden opportunity before substitute Diogo Jota marked his return from injury with a stylish goal to wrap up an important three points to send his team back to the summit before Arsenal host West Ham in a London derby on Thursday night.

A nice little flick around the corner from Diaz, with Jota in close proximity and riding one challenge before firing through the legs of Trafford and in from a tough angle.

Great watch, this.

86 mins: Lovely effort from Alexander-Arnold, who takes an Endo knock-down on his chest before firing a volley narrowly wide with Trafford at full stretch.

That would have been some goal to put this game to bed.

74 mins: Replays show it was a ball to the back stick that Szoboszlai tried to turn back into the six-yard box but ended up inadvertently clearing it.

Liverpool now have a free-kick in a dangerous position after O'Shea's foul on Nunez, who is then kept out by some very brave goalkeeping by Trafford at the feet of the Uruguayan.

19:01 , George Flood

72 mins: Liverpool have now taken the sting out of this Turf Moor crowd and should have another goal, but substitute Szoboszlai can't hook home.

Here is that Harvey Elliott goal and offside decision that kept this game alive...

Burnley 0-1 Liverpool

18:58 , George Flood

69 mins: This is Burnley's best spell of the game by a country mile and they are sustaining it, backed by a vociferous home crowd.

Liverpool are wobbling and giving away the ball all over the place, Berge shooting wide after a rogue Van Dijk header and substitute Gudmundsson then heading over at the back post after being picked out wonderfully by Odobert.

That should have been 1-1. A huge, huge chance for Burnley spurned.
