BURNLEY, England (AP) — Burnley's winless run was extended to 10 games in all competitions after a 2-0 home loss against Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday.

Vincent Kompany's team has not won a game in 2024 and will need a massive turnaround in form to have any chance of avoiding relegation.

Burnley is 11 points from safety and only above last-place Sheffield United on goal difference.

Justin Kluivert fired Bournemouth ahead in the 13th minute at Turf Moor, showing neat footwork in the box before flashing a shot past goalkeeper James Trafford.

Antoine Semenyo ended Burnley's hopes of a comeback with Bournemouth's second in the 88th.

Bournemouth fans mocked Kompany as the game drew to a close, chanting “sacked (fired) in the morning.”

Burnley's last win came at Fulham on Dec. 23 and it has lost eight of its 10 games since then.

Bournemouth hadn't won in its last six games in all competitions and was knocked out of the FA Cup by second-tier Leicester on Tuesday.

This was a first league win since New Year's Eve for Andoni Iraola's team and leaves it 13th in the standings and 11 points clear of the relegation zone.
