Premier League results: Burnley win to stay seventh, Swansea drop into relegation zone

Burnley are seventh in the Premier League

Burnley are only outside of the Premier League top four on goal difference after they beat Southampton, while Swansea dropped into the relegation zone.

Sam Vokes' 81st-minute strike gave Burnley a 1-0 win at St Mary's Stadium and put them on level points with fourth-placed Chelsea, who host Manchester United on Sunday.

Also level on 19 points in a congested top of the table are Arsenal and Liverpool - who thrashed West Ham 4-1 to increase the pressure on Slaven Bilic.

Swansea's 1-0 defeat by Brighton at the Liberty Stadium, coupled with Bournemouth's 92nd-minute winner at Newcastle, saw the Welsh side fall to 18th, with the Cherries leapfrogging them into 17th place.
