BURNLEY, England (AP) Ragnar Klavan headed home from close range in the fourth minute of stoppage time to earn Liverpool a 2-1 win at Burnley in the Premier League on Monday.

The Estonia defender got on the end of a nod-down by fellow center back Dejan Lovren to grab the winner at Turf Moor, sealing Liverpool's third straight win and cementing fourth place in the standings for Juergen Klopp's side.

Sadio Mane span and fired home a rising shot to put Liverpool ahead in the 61st minute, as the Reds made light of the absence of striker Roberto Firmino who started on the bench and injured forwards Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah. Salah, Coutinho, Firmino and Mane have scored 58 of Liverpool's 77 goals this season.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson scored an 87th-minute equalizer for Burnley, which lost at home for the second straight time after a 3-0 defeat to Tottenham last week.
