Burnley striker Wood hails 'fantastic' Cornet after Crystal Palace draw

Burnley striker Chris Wood was delighted to reach 50 Premier League goals but acknowledged it is new team-mate Maxwel Cornet who is stealing the headlines right now.

Wood brought up his half-century in the first half of the Clarets' thrilling 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday, with his goal giving Burnley the lead after Ben Mee cancelled out Christian Benteke's opener.

But after Benteke got his second and Marc Guehi put Palace back in front three minutes before half-time, Burnley needed a superb 49th-minute volley from Cornet to take a point from the game.

“I think we're going to sit down at the end of the season and just watch a highlight reel of his best goals," Wood said of Cornet, who now has five in a Burnley shirt since joining in the summer.

“He's got fantastic quality as a player, you see that on the pitch, and we're lucky to have him. Long may it continue."
