Liverpool close a thrilling 2014 dreaming of better things to come

The ESPN FC panel discuss Liverpool's 1-0 victory at Burnley and highlight Brendan Rodgers' handling of his goalkeeping situation.

Brendan Rodgers hosts his former side on Monday night as Liverpool take on Swansea City in the final league game of what has been a dramatic 2014.

The Swans go into the game three points and one place ahead of Liverpool but have already tasted defeat at Anfield this season in the Capital One Cup. Gary Monk's side had led until very late in that game but were undone by a Mario Balotelli equaliser and a last-gasp winner from Dejan Lovren.

Player Ratings: Raheem Sterling's winner helps Liverpool edge Burnley

Raheem Sterling's second-half strike ensured Liverpool managed their first league victory in four matches despite turning in a poor performance at struggling Burnley.

Raheem Sterling's second-half strike gave Liverpool a hard-fought victory over a Burnley side who gave them all they could handle at Turf Moor.

Liverpool were all over the place in the opening half as the Clarets dominated and created numerous chances they were unable to take. The home side was made to pay a heavy price for its wastefulness when Sterling raced clear after the break to put Liverpool ahead. It was a rare moment of attacking quality from the Merseysiders, who were unrecognisable from...

Three Points: Raheem Sterling the hero as Liverpool edge Burnley

Raheem Sterling's second-half strike ensured Liverpool managed their first league victory in four matches despite turning in a poor performance at struggling Burnley.

BURNLEY, England -- Raheem Sterling's second-half goal was the difference as Liverpool picked up a valuable 1-0 away win at Burnley. Here are three quick points from their Boxing Day clash at Turf Moor:
