Burnley returned to action with another 3-0 win yesterday as they claimed three points over QPR in their first match since before the World Cup started. The Clarets claimed another 3-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers a month ago.
Goals from Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Ian Maatsen and Nathan Tella keeps them three points clear at the top of the table after Sheffield United also picked up a win against Huddersfield Town. Vincent Kompany’s side are now comfortably 12 points within the top six.
Burnley face a tough test next as they take on Middlesbrough at Turf Moor next weekend. Boro have won four of their six matches since Michael Carrick was appointed as their new manager in October.
