Burnley turned in an outstanding performance in last Saturday’s 3-0 win at Norwich and it was left-back Ian Maatsen who was judged to have been our best player in the game.

Maatsen won both the man of the match and the player ratings on Up the Clarets after his excellent performance in a game that saw us play as well as we’ve played all season.

He polled 37% of the vote to win the man of the match ahead of Ashley Barnes who had 27%. Then it was the two central defenders, firstly debutant Hjalmar Ekdal with 19% and Jordan Beyer who won 5%, those two taking third and fourth places.

Those four players won the leading places in the player ratings too with one addition. Maatsen won it with a rating of 8.60 out of ten with Barnes again second with 8.51. Ekdal was third with 8.34 and fourth place was shared by Beyer and Josh Cullen who both had ratings of 8.13 out of ten.

Neither of the top two in the Up the Clarets Player of the Year Table, Jack Cork and Manuel Benson, played at Norwich but they are still some way clear although the battle for third place gets closer with Anass Zaroury currently there but just three points in front of Beyer with Maatsen now just two points further behind.

The Ipswich replay VOTE continues until the end of tomorrow with the Preston vote kicking off after the game this Saturday. The Norwich result is below, followed by the current player of the year table.
