Burnley denied as Josh King strikes again for Bournemouth

King fired home from Ryan Fraser's low cross in the 85th minute, less than two minutes after Burnley had equalized thanks to a header by Sam Vokes at Vitality Stadium.

But King had the final say moments later, clinching all three points.

Sam Vokes cancelled out a first half goal from former Claret Junior Stanislas, but Josh King snatched a victor seconds after the one-time Bournemouth striker netted his fourth in as many games. "Next year I need to prove myself and do it again before you can talk about me with Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku".

The others are Ashley Westwood from Aston Villa for a fee reported to be around £5 million and Joey Barton who was released by Rangers after 5 Premiership games for the Glasgow club.

Burnley remain 14th, six points above 18th-placed Hull, who have two games remaining.

Junior Stanislas controlled Lewis Cook's long ball on his chest before the forward showed composure and pace before calmly slotting past Tom Heaton.

Burnley twice conceded when players got the wrong side of their men, and Dyche was disappointed with the goals they shipped on the coast.

Wins for Real and Barcelona
James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata scored two apiece as Real Madrid stayed on track to be LaLiga champions with a 4-0 win at relegated Granada .

He said: "Josh King has been excellent".

A draw in next weekend's season finale at Leicester would see the Cherries finish above last season's Premier League champions.

The tireless King was next to try his luck and he could only find the side-netting from a tight angle after out-muscling Kevin Long on the left side.

- Josh King's goals have been worth 12 points to Bournemouth this season - only Diego Costa's (15) and Sergio Aguero's (13) have been more valuable to their club.

"I'm not going to use those words, I think it's a very unsafe thing to say", Howe said of the suggestion Bournemouth are now established in the elite. With the way that we play, and what we ask from our players, especially our front players, for him to have scored those late goals, that's one big thing he has improved from when he first joined - his fitness levels.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has admitted that his stand-in defenders still have learning to do following a "really poor" second-half display against Bournemouth.
