Burnley beat Leicester City to boost European hopes

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Burnley earned their fifth straight Premier League win with a 2-1 triumph over Leicester City at Turf Moor on Saturday to boost their chances of qualifying for next season's Europa League.

Former Leicester striker Chris Wood put Burnley ahead in the sixth minute, latching on to a clever Ashley Barnes pass and firing past goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel at the second attempt.

Three minutes later Burnley doubled their advantage when Kevin Long rose at the back post to head home a Johann Berg Gudmundsson corner.
