Certainly not a bad result, seeing as our record at Turf Moor is terrible and we usually really struggle to deal with their physicality. We stood up to the physical side of their game really well, particularly in the 2nd half. Our back 3 was completely solid. Hanley and Gibson had great games but I'm liking Kabak more and more every time he plays. That run in the second half where he took the ball from the edge of one box to the other was incredible! (Although I do wish he'd slipped Sargent or Pukki in at the end of that run).

Both full-backs were good, though I would've liked to have seen them take on their opposing full-backs a little bit more when they had them in 1 on 1 situations. Aarons and Giannoulis both seemed a bit hesitant to do so. Normann was probably man of the match yet again, he's turning out to be a bit of a coup for us. I don't mind this 5-3-2 formation away from home, but I'll be a bit worried if we stick with it for the rest of this season, it may give us more solidity but it sacrifices practically all of our attacking threat. I'd at least like to see it adjusted a bit so that one of the midfielders maybe makes way for a Cantwell/Dowell, who can play in the number 10 role.

A bit disappointing as I felt the win was there for the taking if we just showed a little bit more quality in the final 3rd. At least though we've finally ended that awful consecutive losses stat, and hopefully over the international break we can finesse the formula a bit and make this result a platform to build off of. Have to say though based off today's evidence, both these sides are going to have to make improvements or I can't see our positions change too much between now and May. At least today though we do have one or two reasons to feel a bit positive.
I agree, 2 points lost for me. Burnley were even worse than us.

Didn't lose, didn't win, didn't give up. Well done the yellas and also the travelling canarys. Big well done also, to Morty and fellow Moderators for keeping the the site clean and getting rid of the clowns that seem to get free reign over there.

Thank God Williams got the elbow, Giannoulis far superior as well as giving us better balance. Kabak and Normann are looking better and better. Good point, Burnley aren't easy. Now let's build on it.

I'm not anti Brandon Williams, I am against playing right footed players on the left and vise versa.
