Burnley profited from two Fulham own goals in quick succession as they came from behind to win at Turf Moor, despite not registering a shot on target.

Andre Schurrle's wonderful early strike was cancelled out in the 20th minute when Jeff Hendrick's effort went in off Joe Bryan.

And three minutes later, it was Denis Odoi who inadvertently beat Sergio Rico, heading in after Hendrick crossed. Calum Chambers headed against the Burnley bar soon after and Fulham substitute Luciano Vietto was denied after the break.

But Burnley held on to record their third consecutive Premier League victory, easing their relegation fears, while second-bottom Fulham are now five points from safety.
