Premier League Burnley were knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship side Bournemouth after suffering a 2-0 defeat to the second-tier team at Turf Moor on Tuesday.

Sam Surridge's 21st-minute goal and a late Junior Stanislas penalty sent the Cherries, relegated from the top flight last season, into the quarter-finals.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche fielded a largely second-string lineup, making eight changes from the team which drew with Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Saturday.

Bournemouth looked hungrier from the outset and caused Burnley plenty of problems before Surridge put them in front, slotting home from close range after a low ball across from Jack Stacey.

The Clarets created little but Jay Rodriguez should have brought them level in the 56th minute when he missed a glorious chance, scooping the ball over the bar from close range.

Former Burnley winger Stanislas made sure of the win, two minutes from the end, with a well-taken penalty after Kevin Long brought down Surridge in the box.
