Marc Pugh and Tyrell Hamilton scored twice each as AFC Bournemouth kicked off their Premier League Cup campaign with a 7-1 victory over Burnley at Vitality Stadium.

Carl Fletcher’s side included a contingent of senior players, including Charlie Daniels, Tyrone Mings and Pugh, who opened the scoring on 17 minutes.

The hosts carved out a 4-0 lead with Pugh scoring his second either side of a strike by Keelan O'Donnell (pictured), while Gavin Kilkenny was also on target in the 65th minute.

After Dan Agyei’s smart turn and finish for the visitors, Alex Dobre made it 5-1 for the Cherries.

Second-half substitute Hamilton then scored from long range on 87 minutes before rounding Clarets goalkeeper George McMahon in added time to complete the scoring.
