Early goals in both halves helped Burnley to an impressive 3-0 away win at Crystal Palace, although their victory was marred by an injury to Ben Mee.
It was a speedy start as Johann Berg Gudmundsson (5) and Jay Rodriguez (10) fired Burnley into a quick two-goal lead, with Sean Dyche’s side scoring in the opening half of a Premier League game for the first time in 2021.
Matt Lowton (47) sent home a wonderful half volley just after the break. The only blemish on Burnley’s afternoon was a serious-looking injury for captain Mee, who was stretchered off late on after taking an inadvertent shoulder to the head from Jordan Ayew.
