Burnley and Palace Draw in six-goal Thriller

 Maxwel Cornet wheels away in celebration after making it 3-3

Christian Benteke scored twice and Maxwel Cornet produced a stunning volley as Crystal Palace and Burnley played out a 3-3 draw in a thrilling clash in wet and windy conditions at Turf Moor.

Benteke's deflected strike gave Palace the lead (8) before a powerful Ben Mee header (19) and Chris Wood's glancing effort (27) put the hosts in front.

Benteke led the Palace response with his second goal in the 36th minute before Marc Guehi scored his first senior goal on the stroke of half-time (42).

But Cornet would get his fifth Clarets goal on his sixth Premier League start with a spectacular volley into the top corner to make it 3-3 (49). Substitute Matej Vydra had a chance to win it for Burnley deep into injury-time, but his scuffed attempt in a one-on-one was brilliantly stopped by Vicente Guaita.

The result sees Palace leapfrog Tottenham into ninth on 16 points. Burnley, meanwhile, stay in 18th on nine points.
