Johann Berg Gudmundsson cancels out Danilo's delightful opener as Burnley hold Premier League leaders at Turf Moor

An 82nd-minute goal by Johann Berg Gudmundsson earned Burnley a 1-1 draw with Manchester City at Turf Moor.

City had taken the lead from a cleverly worked short corner when Danilo curled a sumptuous 25-yard shot past Nick Pope on 22 minutes.

Burnley almost levelled when Ben Mee headed wide in the first half and, on 69 minutes, Ederson spectacularly tipped Aaron Lennon’s drive on to the bar.

City might have been out of sight had Raheem Sterling not shot wide from two yards out, but Burnley took full advantage with eight minutes left, Gudmundsson meeting Matt Lowton’s cross.

After dropping points for the second time in four matches, the draw sent Man City 16 points clear at the top ahead of the day's other matches.

Burnley lie seventh with 36 points.
