Burnley vs Brentford 3 - 1 (Premier League 2021 Goals & Highlights)

4 weeks ago

Burnley marked manager Sean Dyche's ninth anniversary in charge by claiming a commanding first Premier League victory of the season against Brentford at Turf Moor.

Victory was virtually secured before half-time, with summer signing Maxwel Cornet continuing his superb start to life in the English top-flight by giving the Clarets a deserved 3-0 lead at the break with a wonderful finish into the top corner.

Chris Wood had fired the hosts in front after just four minutes, producing a fine first-time strike after Matt Lowton's pass evaded the outstretched leg of Bees defender Ethan Pinnock.

Right-back Lowton's header from Charlie Taylor's cross then doubled the advantage before Cornet ensured Burnley's first-half superiority was fully reflected.

Brentford were much-improved after the interval. Christian Norgaard forced Nick Pope into action and Ivan Toney went close after a rare moment of confusion in the Clarets' defence.

But while Saman Ghoddos' excellent volley eventually reduced Burnley's advantage with 11 minutes remaining, Thomas Frank's side were unable to produce a sensational late rally and slumped to a third successive league defeat.
