Fulham's English midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek (L) vies with Burnley's English midfielder Dwight McNeil during the English Premier League football match between Burnley and Fulham at Turf Moor in Burnley, north west England on February 17, 2021.

The Clarets haven't beaten the Cottagers on their own patch in the top flight since a 5-2 win in December 1965.

Sean Dyche's side came out on top in a five-goal thriller in the Championship in March 2016 and went on to put another three past their hosts in the fourth round of the FA Cup this season.

Sam Vokes scored twice - his second from the spot - and Andre Gray netted the winner as Burnley kept their unbeaten run intact and closed in on promotion.

Jay Rodriguez emulated Vokes's feat this season while defender Kevin Long rounded things off to set up a fifth round tie at home to AFC Bournemouth.

Burnley, though, have lost their two games away at Fulham in the PL by an aggregate of 7-2.
