Wolves Hit Back to Deny Burnley Crucial Win

Burnley’s hopes of boosting their Premier League survival took a hit as they were held to a frustrating draw by Wolves at Turf Moor. Jacob Bruun Larsen put the hosts in front after 37 minutes by tucking away Dara O’Shea’s cross. However, Wolves levelled just before half-time when Rayan Ait-Nouri headed in Pablo Sarabia’s wide free-kick.

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has criticized the decision to award a free-kick to Ait-Nouri, which led to his equaliser. Referee Thomas Bramall adjudged minimal contact between Ait-Nouri and O’Shea to be a foul. Despite their failure to find a winner, the hosts had spells of dominance after the restart and created chances to regain the advantage.
