Burnley moved out of the Premier League relegation zone with a 2-1 victory over QPR that could prove massive come the end of the season. In a match between two relegation candidates, it was Sean Dyche's men who took all three points, leaving QPR still without a single win or draw away from home this season in the league.

Burnley had named the same XI for the seventh Premier League match in a row, while QPR recalled Adel Taarabt for the first time in almost exactly a year. Taarabt was the game's top passer (50/58) and created 3 chances on his return to first-team action.

Scott Arfield struck first for Burnley with a fine solo goal, only for former Burnley striker Charlie Austin - who scored and was sent off in QPR's 2-0 win in the reverse fixture in December - to level from the penalty spot.

Burnley led at the break, though, thanks to a calm finish from Danny Ings and that proved decisive. Victory lifts Burnley to 16th, while QPR drop into the bottom three.

  • Scott Arfield scored his first goal since the opening game of the season, when he netted against Chelsea.
  • QPR have only kept 1 clean sheet in their last 18 Premier League away games.
  • Charlie Austin has scored 4 of QPR’s 5 away league goals this term.

  • Danny Ings has scored 4 goals in 4 league games against QPR; against no side has he netted more in his league career.

  • Burnley scored twice (or more) in a Premier League home game for the first time since the final game of their first spell in the Premier League (4-2 vs Tottenham).

  • QPR have become the first team to lose their first 10 away games of a top-flight season since Sunderland in 1964/65.
  • The R’s have only won 1 of their last 10 matches against Burnley in all competitions (D4 L6).
  • Burnley scored with 2 of their 3 shots in the first-half but with 0 of their 15 after the break.
