1819 burnley ben mee 00 500x500Ben Mee won a third successive man of the match vote with his performance at Goodison Park last Friday against Everton to move into fourth place in the Up the Clarets Player of the Year Table but this game also saw his defensive partner James Tarkowski become our player of the season.

In what was a disappointing performance, the two central defenders were undoubtedly our best players on the night with Mee winning both the man of the match vote and the player ratings. He polled 43% of the vote, beating Tarkowski who won 20% of the vote. Robbie Brady, who came back in for his first league start of 2019, was third with a 10% share while Charlie Taylor won 7% of the vote to finish fourth.

The same four players took the top four places in the player ratings. Again Mee was the winner with a rating of 7.23 out of 10, followed by Tarkowski who scored 7.10. They were some way ahead of the rest with Taylor taking third place with 6-06 and a rating of 5.97 out of 10 gave Brady fourth place.

That result has given Mee 10 points towards the Up the Clarets Player of the Year with Tarkowski picking up six points and both Brady and Taylor winning three points.

Tarkowski had kicked off the game with a 10 point lead over Taylor at the top of the table, but that’s now been stretched to 13 points and that wins Tarky the player of the year, taking the title from Jόhann Berg Guðmundsson who was the 2017/18 season.
