A big win for Liverpool at Turf Moor puts them closer to qualifying for the next season’s Champions League. This season looks like Liverpool will miss out on the champions league after a defeat to Fulham in March which leaves them eight on the table.
A late turnaround now puts them in 4th place above Leicester city. Liverpool head into the final weekend of the season fourth on goal difference and in control of their Champions League destiny.

“It was a semifinal,” said Klopp. “We had to win the semifinal and we did. Nothing is decided yet, but we improved our position and we have the final. That’s what we needed. It’s what we deserve because this was a top performance.”
“You can’t give any chance away against Burnley because of the way they play. “They wanted to go for our Centre-halves, but our boys did outstandingly well. We knew before the game it would be incredibly tough they had about 3,500 people not on our side. Atmosphere in football is massive.”
“I thought the boys dealt really well with that. They didn’t get distracted they tried to use it because noise is nice. We played a lot of good football stuff.”
Liverpool host crystal place in the last round of games and a win will see them book a place in the next champions league final
