BURNLEY, England (AP) - Stoke reached its highest ever points tally in the Premier League by drawing 0-0 with already relegated Burnley on Saturday.

The stalemate takes Mark Hughes’ team to 51 points, the most it has registered in the seven years it has been in the Premier League, and also ensures successive top-half finishes in the top flight for the first time in 40 years.

The record could have been brought up with a win, but Mame Diouf spurned two good opportunities to break the deadlock, while Jonathan Walters also missed a good chance for the Potters.

Burnley, whose home supporters were bidding farewell to Premier League football, made the early running but could not force a breakthrough, despite several Danny Ings attempts.
