BOURNEMOUTH 2-2 NEWCASTLE UNITED

There was late drama at the Vitality stadium, where Newcastle fought back to earn a 2-2 draw after Matt Ritchie scored a superb volley deep into added time.

Ryan Fraser saw an early effort hit the outside of the post, but it was the visitors who broke the deadlock moments before half-time through a curling free-kick from Salomon Rondon.

The home side were back on level terms soon after the restart when Joshua King converted a penalty in the 48th minute after Nathan Ake had been brought down by Federico Fernandez.

King got his second of the afternoon in the 81st minute from a pass by Dominic Solanke, which looked to have secured Bournemouth all three points.

Newcastle, though, earned themselves a share of the spoils following Ritchie’s fine finish from a cross by DeAndre Yedlin.

BURNLEY 1-2 LEICESTER CITY

Wes Morgan scored a 90th-minute winner for ten-man Leicester as they overcame the fourth-minute dismissal of Harry Maguire to claim an unlikely victory over Burnley at a wet and windy Turf Moor.

The England defender was shown a straight red card for bringing down Johann Berg Gudmundsson but Burnley were unable to make their numerical advantage count and the 2-1 defeat was their fourth in a row.

Leicester took the lead in the 33rd minute through a fine free-kick from James Maddison but 19-year-old Dwight McNeil equalised with his second Premier League goal five minutes later.

Burnley pushed for what would have been a potentially crucial win in their battle against relegation but instead it was Morgan who found the breakthrough, heading in Youri Tielemans’ deflected cross.
