Premier League

Burnley needed all three points following Everton’s win over Manchester United but Cornet missed an easy chance to equalise

Burnley lost to Norwich City in a huge game for their Premier League survival hopes but it could have been so different if not for Maxwel Cornet’s miss of the season candidate.

On Wednesday, Sean Dyche’s side added fuel to the flames of a very hot battle to stay in the Premier League, when they defeated Everton.

It took Burnley to just a point behind Frank Lampard’s team and eyeing the improbable escape from the top tier’s bottom three, once again.


They were dealt a blow on Saturday, when the Toffees shocked Manchester United at Goodison Park and re-establish their four point cushion, but the Clarets knew they were facing fellow strugglers Norwich on Sunday.

Pierre-Lees Melou gave his side an early lead, as the hosts dominated early on, but Dyche’s men began to come back at Dean Smith’s side in the second half.

The introduction of Dwight McNeil really rallied the visitors and the winger provided a perfect ball for Cornet, who managed to miss from inside the six yard box, with Tim Krul beaten.
