Sadio Mane and Ragnar Klavan grabbed the headlines in tricky conditions as Liverpool secured a last-gasp 2-1 win away at Burnley on Monday.
Johann Gudmundsson scored a free header at the back post in the 88th minute to cancel out Mane’s stunning strike.
Klavan, who had never scored a Premier League goal, popped up with a 94th minute winner to secure a dramatic New Year’s Day victory for the Reds.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are now level on points with Manchester United, who face Everton at Goodison Park on Monday evening.
“A very difficult game, these fixtures are really difficult to take. We did brilliant, the weather made it so hard, windy, rainy,” the Liverpool boss said.
“Burnley are doing well, we denied them to do what they usually like to do. It took a while to score and then the next two goals were very similar.
“Did we deserve to win? I don’t care. We got the three points”.
CARRAGHER’S BRILLIANT TWEET AT FULL-TIME
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher remains a fan favourite an Anfield since retiring as a one-club man in 2013.
Now a pundit for Sky Sports, the 39-year-old Scouser was following Liverpool’s clash with Burnley at the home of their local rivals, Everton.
Carragher was preparing to commentate on Everton vs Manchester United and learned of Klavan’s late winner at the perfect moment.
He’s not a popular man amongst Everton and Man United fans but was making his way through the supporters at Goodison Park when he learnt of Liverpool’s 94th minute winner.
Everton v Man Utd for me from 5:15! As I was walking to the commentary box I had to go through Everton & United fans just as the Klavan goal flashed up on screen!!!! Simply lovely!!!!!!

Carragher knows exactly what to say to endear himself to the Liverpool supporters.
Liverpool – who are unbeaten in all competitions since their 4-1 defeat to Spurs in October – host Everton in the FA Cup 3rd round on Friday night before welcoming runaway league leaders Manchester City next weekend.
They are 15 points behind Guardiola’s side but have played one game more.
