Manchester City draw was our best home performance
Last week we conducted a poll on Up the Clarets asking which home performance you considered was our best in the Premier League during the 2017/18 season.
All of the wins were available but it was the 1-1 draw against City at the beginning of February that was the clear winner, polling 56% of the vote. It wasn’t an off day for City either. The champions elect had gone in front midway through the first half but it was Burnley’s fight back in the final half an hour of the game that lifted the home crowd, this after Raheem Sterling had missed a sitter to make it 2-0.
Jόhann Berg Guðmundsson scored our thoroughly deserved equaliser eight minutes from the end of normal time. One left wing cross from Charlie Taylor had just evaded the Burnley forwards but Jack Cork kept the ball in, played it to Matt Lowton whose cross was perfect. Guðmundsson got ahead of Kyle Walker to finish with a brilliant half volley.
There is no doubting that this performance fully deserved to win the award with only three other games receiving any significant return of votes. The 2-1 win against Everton came second. This was the day we finally ended the run without a win and also, for the first time under Sean Dyche, came from behind to win a Premier League game.
The final home win of the season against Leicester was third with the comfortable victory against Swansea back in October taking fourth place.
Watch out this afternoon for the vote for our best away performance of the season.
