    Burnley sends Premier League titleholder Leicester to third loss in a row

    Feb 1, 2017

    BURNLEY, England — Burnley condemned Leicester to a third successive Premier League loss on Tuesday, beating the ailing champions 1-0 through Sam Vokes' late goal.

    Vokes struck from close range in the 87th minute to secure Burnley's seventh successive win at Turf Moor in all competitions and fifth in the league. Replays suggested Vokes could have controlled the ball with his arm before shooting.

    Leicester is two points above the relegation zone in the league it won so unexpectedly last season. Burnley is eight points better off in ninth place.

    Middlesbrough came from behind to draw, 1-1, at home to West Bromwich Albion and claim a point in its fight for survival in the Premier League on Tuesday.

    West Brom went ahead when former Middlesbrough midfielder James Morrison lashed home from 20 yards in the sixth minute.

    The hosts equalized in the 17th after Gareth McAuley needlessly brought down Martin de Roon in the area, with Alvaro Negredo slotting home the resulting penalty.
