Burnley's Chris Wood created history on Sunday as he hit the Premier League's 30,000th goal against Leeds United. However, the goal was not sufficient to claim all three points as Patrick Bamford scored an equalizer in the 86th minute to help Leeds share the spoils. Despite Wood's Premier League record-breaking goal, he was disappointed that the team did not leave Turf Moor with all three points.
Burnley's Chris Wood scored the Premier League's 30,000th goal with the faintest of touches following Matt Lowton's initial low shot. Wood's touch deflected the ball beyond goalkeeper Illan Meslier for his first goal of the season. However, Leeds United equalized following some brilliant play from Raphinha. The Brazilian passed two defenders before delivering a ball to Jamie Shackleton. Shackleton attempted a shot that was guided home by Patrick Bamford. Meanwhile, Wood's Premier League record-breaking goal and his disappointed reaction after the game can be seen below.
