Medical emergency delays kick-off for Burnley’s clash with Newcastle

The game kicked off half an hour late after referees' assessor Eddie Wolstenholme collapsed in the tunnel and was taken to hospital, and Dyche would have been furious with sloppy play from his side that allowed Newcastle first to threaten and then to score.

Burnley did not properly clear a corner and, when Federico Fernandez took aim, his 25-yard drive - which was heading wide of the post - beat Joe Hart via a deflection off Burnley captain Mee. Hopefully it doesn't make the worst Premier League misses.

"The second goal was really poor, that's stuff we're good at".

That statistic would be all the more frightening had the Magpies kept hold of Aleksandar Mitrovic over the summer, as the Serbian marksman has now scored the most headed goals (four) in the Premier League this season for Fulham.

Only Ritchie will know how he did not restore their two-goal advantage five minutes in. Now we have won three in a row.

Vokes rued the soft early goals and stressed Burnley needed to rediscover last season's home form.

Wolstenholme is a former Premier League referee who retired from officiating in 2003. Certainly the amount of quality chances we created was pleasing because that's not easy to do in the Premier League.

Despite Matt Ritchie's contender for the miss of the season, the Toon moved up to 13th in the table thanks to Ben Mee's own goal and a Ciaran Clark header.

The strike was, in fact, the fourth time the club have netted within the opening 10 minutes across their last six appearances, with Rondon finding the back of the net on seven minutes a fortnight ago during the 2-1 win against Bournemouth, while the Magpies famously scored twice within the first 10 minutes against Manchester United at Old Trafford last month.
