Burnley 1 Sheffield United 1

By Burnley FC
July 5 2020

James Tarkowski led by example as captain in the Premier League for the first time, although his goal wasn’t quite enough to give the Clarets a hat-trick of wins.

 Tarkowksi, taking the armband from the injured Ben Mee and a commanding figure at both ends of the pitch, fired Burnley into a half-time lead as they looked to go above Sheffield United and stay in an improbable race for Europe.

 Sean Dyche’s side were just over 10 minutes from moving up to eighth place in the table until John Egan levelled for the Blades.

 But even though a 14th clean sheet and record-equalling 14th Premier League win just eluded them, the Clarets have still lost just once in their last 11 league games and despite missing more key men delivered another defiant performance which keeps them on course for a fantastic finish.

 The Clarets, already stretched by injuries, were hit by a further blow as Mee’s ever-present record was ended by a thigh problem and Jack Cork succumbed to the ankle injury he sustained in Monday night’s win at Crystal Palace.

 That interrupted Mee’s defensive partnership with Tarkowski for the first time in 57 Premier League games as Kevin Long returned to Burnley’s starting line-up for the first time in the top flight since December, 2018.

If chances had been taken could have been 3 instead of 1 point, but hey ho don't really matter. I personally thought it was a bit of a stale game nearly fell asleep a number of times.

Elaborate regarding McNeil FL. Not watching games at the moment so relying on posts and reports.

With 5 novices on the bench shows how depleted we can be with just a few injuries.
