Wilson's double gives Newcastle 3-1 win against Burnley

October 3

NEWCASTLE, England (AP) — Callum Wilson scored twice Saturday to lead Newcastle to a 3-1 victory that left Burnley without a point after three Premier League matches.

Wilson also set up the opener in the 14th minute when he chested Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow’s clearance off to Allan Saint-Maximin, who twisted and turned on the edge of the penalty area before striking into the bottom corner.

Burnley leveled in the 61st when Josh Brownhill recycled Ashley Westwood’s corner on the right and laid the ball into the path of fullback Phil Bardsley, whose half-cleared cross was volleyed home by Westwood.

Newcastle was back in front within four minutes when Saint-Maximin skipped past defender Charlie Taylor and crossed for Wilson to net.

Wilson made it four goals in four league games since signing from Bournemouth when he netted from the penalty spot in the 78th after goalkeeper Nick Pope tripped substitute Ryan Fraser.

Newcastle is sixth with seven points from four games.
