Clarets move eight points clear of relegation zone after 3-1 comeback win over AFC Bournemouth

Burnley gave their hopes of Premier League safety a big boost by coming from behind to beat AFC Bournemouth 3-1.

The home side went ahead in the fourth minute when Ryan Fraser’s free-kick was flicked on by Jefferson Lerma and headed into his own net by Ashley Barnes.

Burnley equalised 14 minutes later when Chris Wood headed in Ashley Westwood’s corner.

Two minutes later, the Clarets were ahead after Westwood swept into the far corner following a poor clearance from Chris Mepham.

Burnley made sure of the win 11 minutes after the break when Wood set up Barnes after Asmir Begovic had spilled a left-wing cross.

The victory lifts Burnley up to 14th with 36 points, eight clear of the relegation zone.

AFC Bournemouth drop to 13th, on 38 points.
