Newcastle United 3-1 Burnley: Callum Wilson double helps the hosts move up to sixth

Newcastle moved up to sixth in the Premier League with a comfortable win over a disappointing Burnley side.

The Clarets, who were well below par particularly in the first half are now 19th in the table, after losing their opening three games in the top flight for the first time since 1927-28.

Allan Saint-Maximin opened the scoring for the hosts with a low drive into the bottom right corner.

While Burnley rallied and levelled via Ashley Westwood’s superb volley into the same corner, Newcastle quickly wrestled back control of the game.

Saint-Maximin’s purposeful run down the right gave Callum Wilson a tap-in.

And the forward added his second – and Newcastle’s third – from a penalty after Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope fouled Ryan Fraser after miscontrolling James Tarkowski’s backpass.
