Premier League: Burnley beat Crystal Palace for their first win of the season; Wolves draw against Southampton

EPL 2020-21: Burnley rode on Chris Wood’s eighth-minute goal to beat Crystal Palace 1-0 and register their first win of the Premier League season at Turf Moor on Monday.

The result helped Burnley to move out of the bottom three up to 17th place, on five points from eight matches, while Palace drop to 10th on 13 after nine games.

Sean Dyche’s Burnley, who went into the match without a home goal in this campaign, ended their barren run when Palace defender Cheikhou Kouyate made a mess of a high cross from Johann Berg Gudmundsson, the ball falling to Jay Rodriguez who fed Wood to drive home.

The on-loan Everton forward netted for the visitors for the first time since January 2006, early in his first spell for the south-coast club, to give them the lead in the 58th minute at Molineux.

However, Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Pedro Neto came off the bench to cancel out Walcott’ strike in the 75th minute, turning in a rebound after Raul Jimenez’s shot came off the post.

The stalemate leaves Southampton fifth on 17 points, three behind pacesetters Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, while Wolves rise to ninth on 14 points after nine games.
