Burnley relegated from Premier League after Wilson sparks Newcastle win
As at various points in the final months of the season, Burnley had hope of beating the drop throughout these 90 minutes. Newcastle’s goal was besieged in the final stages in search of survival after Maxwel Cornet’s strike. An equaliser might have been the cruellest event considering Leeds’s late winner at Brentford. It did not come, however, and Burnley’s six-year stay in the Premier League petered out. They face a bleak financial picture.Burnley had survival in their hands but a panicked side, lacking anything close to a cutting edge, will have to start next season in the Championship after Callum Wilson scored twice to leave the Clarets in the red, a position Newcastle will have feared before their takeover.
