Premiership: Burnley 0-1 Swansea

Swansea moved up to eighth in the Premier League table after a narrow victory over struggling Burnley.

They broke the deadlock in the second half, as Kieran Trippier scored an own goal in failing to clear; Burnley were unable to find a leveller.

Ashley Barnes wasted the best chance of the first half, striking at Swansea’s Lukasz Fabianski from close range.

At the other end, Bafetimbi Gomis had an effort smothered by Tom Heaton before flashing a strike wide of goal.

The Clarets picked up an encouraging point at leaders Chelsea last weekend and were unchanged for this match, but could not break down a solid Swansea backline.

Sean Dyche’s men have now gone 11 matches without a clean sheet and remain in the relegation zone. They have the joint-worst defensive record in the league this season, conceding 45 goals.

The result could prove a significant loss in their battle to escape the drop, as they face sides in the current top seven in their next five games, having won just one of their last 11.

Meanwhile, Garry Monk’s men backed up last weekend’s win over Manchester United by collecting another three points to reach 40 for the season.
