Having had a quiet couple of games in both the man of the match vote and player ratings, James Tarkowski was back on top of things at Aston Villa, winning both in our 2-2 draw.

1920 burnley james tarkowski 00 500x500It’s been a terrific start to the season for Tarkowski who won two man of the match votes and four player ratings in August and his performance at Villa keeps him some way on top of the Up the Clarets Player of the Year Table.

He won 38% of the man of the match vote ahead of his defensive partner Ben Mee who took second place with a 14% share. Chris Wood, who scored the second equaliser, was third with 9% while fourth place went to Ashley Westwood with 8% of the vote.

The player ratings were somewhat different but had the same top two. Tarky won this with a rating of 7.60 out of 10 with Mee scoring 7.10. Third place in the ratings went to Nick Pope who scored 6.67 and Jay Rodriguez, our first goalscorer, scored 6.60 out of 10 to take fourth place.

This result gives Tarkowski his third maximum ten points of the season with Mee winning six votes. Both Pope and Wood won two points with one point each for Rodriguez and Westwood.

Those points took Tarkowski into second place for the September Player of the Month when the winner was Jeff Hendrick who won 18 points from the three games. But he’s a long way clear in the player of the season table. His 46 points is double the 23 points that have now taken Mee into second place, five points ahead of Hendrick and Pope who are joint third with 18 points.

The next vote will be underway this Saturday after the Everton game and below you can see the Aston Villa result, the September player of the month result and the current player of the year table.
