Burnley first league win of season

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.

urnley had not failed to muster a win from their opening 10 games of a Premier League season since 2014-15 –

and on that occasion they were ultimately relegated from the top-flight.

But on the day the Premier League’s longest-serving current manager celebrated nine years in charge at Turf Moor,

Dyche’s side never appeared in danger of recording an unwanted club record of 13 games without victory in the competition.

The Clarets’ performances have been steadily improving – they had lost just once in their previous four in the league

and they were rewarded for an electric start against beleaguered opposition.

Maxwel Cornet has scored four goals in five league games for Burnley this season.
