Jόhann Berg Guðmundsson scored the goal that earned the Clarets a point in a 1-1 draw against Manchester City at the Turf last Saturday and his performance has won him another man of the match vote along with coming first in the player ratings.

1718 burnley johann berg gudmundsson 00 500x500It was a superb all round performance from us against a team that midfielder Jack Cork has described as the best he’s ever played in the Premier League and it was Guðmundsson who got on the end of Matt Lowton’s ball into the box to volley home with just over eight minutes of normal time remaining.

It capped another fine performance from the Icelandic international and that was reflected in both the man of the match vote and the player ratings.

He polled 30% of the man of the match vote and was followed by three defenders who took the remaining top four places. Charlie Taylor was second with 14% of the vote, just ahead of Ben Mee who was third with 13%. Fourth place was taken by Matt Lowton, who came on as a substitute at the start of the second half; he had 9% of the vote.

The same four players also took the first four places in the player ratings. Guðmundsson was again this winner; his rating was 8.43 out of 10 and Taylor was again second with a rating of 8.17. This time third and fourth swapped places with Lowton finishing third with a rating of 8.12 and Mee, with a rating of 8.05 out of 10, taking fourth place.

That result has given Guðmundsson the maximum ten points towards the Up the Clarets Player of the Year. Taylor has won six points whilst both Lowton and Mee have collected three points. It’s really close at the top now with Guðmundsson, in fourth place, just 15 points behind Steven Defour who, for now, retains first place.
