Braces from Belgian winger Manuel Benson and Moroccan attacker Anass Zaroury sealed the deal for Burnley.

Brentford vs Bournemouth Prediction
Brentford are currently ninth in the league and have won three of their last five league games. Manager Thomas Frank has earned deserved praise for the performances of his side, with striker Ivan Toney the star performer.
They have acquired young German attacker Kevin Schade on loan from Freiburg. Schade is a highly regarded talent, and the 21-year-old is expected to join Brentford permanently this summer. While it is unlikely that the likes of Toney, David Raya and Bryan Mbeumo will leave this month, the trio are likely to attract interest from top clubs this summer.
Bournemouth, on the other hand, are 16th this season and have lost four of their last five league games. The new ownership is expected to spend some money following a drab summer transfer period, with the likes of Noa Lang and Antoine Semenyo linked with the club.
Bournemouth's current trajectory does not bode well as they are a point ahead of 18th-placed Everton. The teams involved in the relegation battle like Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton, Southampton and West Ham United all arguably boast better squads than Bournemouth right now.
