The Premier League returned to action on first day of 2018, there was late drama at
Turf Moor, as an injury-time goal gave Liverpool a dramatic 2-1 victory at Burnley just when it looked like the game would end in a stalemate.
Sadio Mane’s brilliant strike gave Liverpool the lead but Johann Gudmundsson levelled three minutes from time — only for Ragnar Klavan to head home in the 94th minute for the Reds.
The result took Liverpool level on points with third-place Manchester United ahead of their game at Everton later on New Year’s Day.
Elsewhere, Nigeria’s Wilfred Ndidi and his Leicester City teammates had a flying start in 2018 as they pounded Huddersfield Town 3-0 at the King Power Stadium.
The Foxes scored twice in seven second-half minutes as they romped to the big win.
In the other New Year day fixtures, Brighton & Hove Albion and AFC Bournemouth ended their tie in a stalemate as the game ended 2-2.
There was joy for Newcastle United finally as their winless run ended with a 1-0 win away to Stoke City.
Everton 0-2 Manchester United
