Burnley leapfrog Newcastle United in the league standings, with Jeff Hendrick’s goal seeing them beat the Magpies at Turf Moor.
Hendrick netted in the 74th minute to send the 21,031 strong crowd into raptures.
The win means Burnley are now seventh in the table (level on points with 6th place Liverpool but below them on goal difference). The Clarets had lost 3-0 to Man City last weekend, while Newcastle had beaten bottom of the table Crystal Palace at home Continue reading
Andre Ayew has been hitting a rich vein of form in recent times, and is already the club’s highest goal scorer this season. To the add to the brace he scored against Spurs at the Wembley stadium in midweek, here is him producing a top class finish against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park over the week.

Tottenham’s back three of Ben Davies, Toby Alderweireld and Juan Foyth will not look back upon the second half of their League Cup tie against Tottenham Hotspur too fondly.

Davies and Foyth played their respective opponents onside for West Ham’s first and second goals (both scored by Ghana star Andre Ayew), and Alderweireld failed to stop Angelo Ogbonna from thumping in a beauty to make it 3-2. Continue reading
