Burnley and Crystal Palace produce thriller

Maxwel Cornet struck a stunning equaliser as Burnley twice came from behind to draw with Crystal Palace in a six-goal thriller at Turf Moor.

Christian Benteke's deflected effort gave Palace an early lead before Burnley hit back with headers from Ben Mee and Chris Wood.

The Eagles surged back to lead at the break thanks to Benteke's second and Marc Guehi's first goal for the club.

However, Cornet secured a point for the Clarets four minutes after the restart with a devastating left-footed volley for the Ivorian's fourth goal in as many league games.

Matej Vydra spurned a golden chance to win it for Burnley at the death but Vicente Guaita tipped the substitute's shot around the post.

While a draw is not enough to lift Burnley out of the relegation zone and above Leeds, who play on Sunday, it stretches their unbeaten run to four games before the visit of Tottenham on 28 November.

Palace, meanwhile, extended their own undefeated sequence to seven - five of which have been draws - even if they failed to leapfrog Manchester United into eighth.
