Burnley finally got their Premier League campaign up and running, securing their first win of the season with a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Striker Chris Wood sent the hosts on their way in the eighth minute, emphatically finishing past Vicente Guaita to score Burnley's first home goal of the season.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson should have made the game safe in the 55th minute when played through on goal by Dwight McNeil, but his shot crashed against the crossbar.

The miss almost proved costly right at the death as Burnley needed a fantastic save from Nick Pope to deny Christian Benteke an equaliser and seal a much-need three points for his side.

How Burnley got their season up and running…

Burnley came into the contest as the lowest scorers in the top flight this season, with just three goals to their name and none in their last four matches.

However, they raced out of the blocks against Palace as Cheikhou Kouyate's poor defensive header fell to Jay Rodriguez, who flicked the ball into the path of Wood to fire beyond Guaita.

Palace responded well and they came close to bringing the scores level. Eberechi Eze eased past Matt Lowton on the left before playing in James McArthur, who squared the ball along the six-yard area, just out of reach of the lunging Michy Batshuayi.

Moments later, the on-loan Chelsea striker dragged a shot inches wide of Pope's right-hand post from the edge of the box before Andros Townsend's powerful strike from distance was tipped over by the Burnley goalkeeper.

After the break, Burnley were appealing for a foul on Rodriguez as he looked to get past Kouyate and go clean through into the penalty area. However, the challenge, which took place outside the penalty area, went unpunished by the referee and VAR.

Burnley were on top and they should have doubled their lead when McNeil picked out Gudmundsson in acres of space, but his early strike cannoned back off the crossbar.

The miss almost proved costly as McNeil's terrible backpass put Batshuayi through one-on-one with Pope, but the striker fluffed his line as the England international made a smart block.
