1718 burnley jeff hendrick 00 500x500Burnley returned from Greece to turn in what was one of our worst performances for some considerable time at Fulham. We were beaten 4-2 on a very disappointing day for the Clarets.

There was little to enthuse about other than the performances from Jeff Hendrick and James Tarkowski and it was no surprise that the pair took the first two places in the man of the match vote and the player ratings.

Hendrick won the man of the match with 45% of the vote, followed by Tarkowski who had a 25% share. Goalkeeper Joe Hart, despite being beaten four times, came third with 11% while Jack Cork was fourth with a 5% share of the vote.

On a day of very low player ratings, Hendrick was the only player to score more than six out of ten, the average rating. He won with a rating of 6.46 out of 10 with the next three the same as in the vote. Tarkowski took second place with a rating of 5.88, Hart was third with 5.69 and a rating as low as 5.15 out of 10 was enough to give Cork fourth place.

That result gave Hendrick the maximum ten points towards the Up the Clarets Player of the Year, six points for Tarkowski, four for Hart and two for Cork.

Those four players also now occupy the top four places in the table with Cork’s lead over Tarkowski now down to four points.

During this week we’ll get up to date with the Olympiacos and Manchester United home games ahead of our return to action next Sunday against Wolves.
