BURNLEY, England (AP) — Bournemouth spoiled Burnley’s European qualification party with a 2-1 victory at Turf Moor on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday.

Burnley looked set to celebrate a final win of the Premier League campaign when Chris Wood gave the seventh-place hosts the lead in the 39th minute.

But Josh King leveled for Bournemouth in the 74th and the visitors snatched all three points in stoppage time when Kevin Long’s mistake was punished by substitute Callum Wilson.

Burnley had already secured a place in the Europa League, starting on July 26 in the second qualifying round. Bournemouth completed its third Premier League season in 12th.

This version corrects that Bournemouth completed its third, not second, season in the Premier League.
