Crystal Palace came from two goals behind to break Burnley hearts with a huge 3-2 win at Turf Moor.
Sean Dyche's men took a commanding lead inside just 16 minutes when first Ben Mee headed home Kieran Trippier's corner, before Danny Ings grabbed his third goal in as many league matches. But Alan Pardew's men rallied to hand their new man back-to-back wins in as many matches in charge; Dwight Gayle halved the deficit midway through the first half before Jason Puncheon levelled three minutes after the restart.
Gayle then struck again three minutes from time to fire Palace up to 12th, albeit only four points above the relegation zone in a sardine-like bottom half.
