Burnley moved out of the Premier League relegation zone with a crucial 1-0 victory over Wolves at Turf Moor. It was a shocking outcome for Goodison Park, as it sent Everton into the bottom three only days before they were set to face Liverpool at Anfield.
Burnley’s Matej Vydra scored the game-winning goal for Burnley in the 62nd minute, sparking wild celebrations among the home fans, including Mike Jackson, whose interim leadership is threatening to keep the Clarets in the Premier League. Wolves puffed and puffed in quest of an equalizer, but they didn’t generate much, with their best chances coming to either side at the half-time when the score remained 0-0.
Burnley have now won three consecutive Premier League matches at Turf Moor for the first time since January 2017, and their fans sang “we’re staying up” as the final whistle blew.
Match-winner Vydra stated, “I was quite worried during the last ten minutes. I was counting down the minutes, hoping we’d be able to secure the three points. ” I believe we struggled in the first half with our defensive shape because they played three or five at the back. ” After starting on the left, I switched positions with Jay [Rodriguez] in order to put pressure on [Willy] Boly. “
My first [goal of the season] came against Chelsea, and it was a crucial goal. This one is even more crucial, but it isn’t the only one. For the first time since January 2017, Burnley has won three straight Premier League home games. The Clarets are no longer in danger of relegation.
Brighton appeared set for a straightforward home win when Danny Welbeck scored after only two minutes at the Amex Stadium, and when Saints defender Mo Salisu diverted the ball into his own net, the game was set for a routine home win. James Ward-Prowse, on the other hand, had other ideas, netting a wonderful free-kick in first-half stoppage time to halve the deficit before slamming past Robert Sanchez early in the second half to earn his team a point.
