For the second successive home game both the man of the match vote and the player ratings have been won by Dwight McNeil.

Against Bournemouth he got himself an assist and a goal as well as hitting the woodwork. There were no goals or assists from him in the 1-1 draw against Spurs, although he played his part in our goal, but it was another excellent performance from the young McNeil.

This latest performance won him 54% of the man of the match vote, ahead of James Tarkowski who took second place with a 14% share. Charlie Taylor finished third with 8% while Ashley Westwood was just ahead of Chris Wood for fourth place with 5% of the vote.

We had the same top two in the player ratings; McNeil winning it with a rating of 8.39 out of 10, followed by Tarkowski who scored 8.07. This time it was Wood in third place with a rating of 7.78 while Jack Cork was fourth with a rating of 7.49 out of 10.

This result has given McNeil the maximum ten points towards the Up the Clarets Player of the Year while there are six points for Tarkowski, two each for Taylor and Wood with the midfield pair of Cork and Westwood both winning one point.

Those points have done no more than stretch Tarkowski’s lead at the top to 45 points ahead of Ben Mee while McNeil has now moved within ten points of Mee in third place.

The next vote gets underway this Saturday after our game against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Below we have the Spurs result in full, followed by the current player of the year table.
