Burnley 4 Bournemouth 0

Rampant Burnley stopped the rot in style with a biggest ever Premier League win on a big afternoon of firsts at a jubilant Turf Moor. 

 Matej Vydra and Aaron Lennon both scored for the first time in a Burnley shirt – Vydra on his full debut – to set up the Clarets’ first league win of the season.

 Super-sub Ashley Barnes then came off the bench to add two further goals late on as Sean Dyche’s men roared off the foot of the table and out of the bottom three.

 And it was no more than the Clarets deserved as they emphatically stopped the rot after four straight defeats and avoided a bit of unwanted history.

 The Clarets had never lost five successive Premier League games before – one first they wanted to avoid.

 And they did in defiant fashion, passing a test of character with flying colours and winning by a four-goal margin for the first time in the Premier League era.

 Dyche’s reaction to defeat at Wolves last weekend and a worrying start was to make three changes to the Clarets’ line-up, including Vydra’s first start.

 Matt Lowton and Ashley Westwood were also back and after a few home truths during the week, Burnley were back to their best.

 There was a rediscovered energy from the off in an up-beat start that immediately lifted the mood around Turf Moor.

 And while there was a wait for the opening goal, the timing of two in two minutes just before the break could hardly have been better.

It was a close game except the goals... they had more possession, more shots, the same numer on target, fewer fouls. However, we were lucky and they were not. Our defence keeping a clean sheet flatters to deceive.

Sounds like we were lucky but I'll take the three points
