For the third time this season, Steven Defour won both the man of the match vote and the player ratings against West Ham, having previously won the pair in the home games against West Brom and Huddersfield.

1718 burnley steven defour 00 500x500Defour has been bang in form this season, notably at home, and again he was a clear winner in both the vote and the ratings.

He won 63% of the man of the match vote, some way ahead of second place Johann Berg Gudmundsson who had a 12% share having come on at half time as a substitute. Goalscorer Chris Wood was third with 9% and an 8% share won Jack Cork, Defour’s midfield partner, fourth place.

The player ratings result was similar with the same four players finishing in the top four with just a switch between the lower placed two. Defour secured first place with a rating of 8.07 out of 10 while there were three other players who scored more than seven. Gudmundsson was second with a rating of 7.52 but this time Cork came second with a rating of 7.21 ahead of fourth place Wood whose rating was 7.10 out of 10.

That result gives Defour ten points towards the Up the Clarets Player of the Year and six points for Gudmundsson. Both Cork and Wood won three points and that result has tightened things up between the top two. James Tarkowski still leads but that lead has now been cut to five points ahead of Cork who now leads Defour by just two points.

The next vote will be for the Manchester City game this Saturday and will be underway around an hour after the final whistle.
