Fulham (2) 2-3 (1) Burnley


Andre Gray was the Burnley hero again last night as he scored his 22nd goal of the season to complete a dramatic turnaround for the league leaders.

The Clarets were staring a first league defeat of 2016 in the face after trailing 2-1 at the break to an inspired Fulham.

Ross McCormack and Moussa Dembele had responded to Sam Vokes' early opener for Slavisa Jokanovic's strugglers.

But Vokes' penalty levelled matters before Gray scored a stunner to further pay back some of the £7million Burnley had paid Brentford for his services.

"We were clinical and it was fantastic," said Clarets manager Sean Dyche whose side are now four points clear.

"Andre has a marvellous habit of not being disappointed to miss. He's enjoying his football and still learning. He looks a threat in every game."

In a match between the division's highest scoring teams, this game was always going to have goals and it certainly did not disappoint.

Vokes gave Burnley a ninth minute lead as he headed home from Scott Arfield's corner and at that stage you wondered just how many Burnley would manage.

But Fulham responded in style to make a mockery of their league position. Moussa Dembele set up McCormack to bury on 17 minutes and seven minutes later the former had chested home from Luke Garbutt's cross.
