Irish Premiership: Blues cruise to victory over Ballymena

Aaron Burns hits a double as Linfield start their bid for the Premiership title with a 4-0 win against Ballymena United at Windsor Park.

The midfielder netted twice in the first half before late strikes from Andrew Waterworth and Reece Glendinning sealed the three points.

Ballymena captain Jim Ervin was sent-off on a miserable day for Glenn Ferguson's side.
