James Tarkowski was the player ratings winner in last Tuesday’s home draw against Manchester United alongside a second place in the man of the match vote.

The battle for the man of the match was very much a two man battle from start to finish with the lead switching hands several times. Eventually the winner was new signing Wout Weghorst, who got a superb assist on our goal before, a couple of minutes later, coming so close to his first Burnley goal.

Weghorst won 34% of the vote with Tarkowski having a 32% share to take second place. Goalkeeper Nick Pope was third with 16% and 8% of the vote secured fourth place for left-back Erik Pieters.

It was Tarkowski, however, who came to of the ratings with 8.75 out of ten. Pope was second, scoring 8.18, just ahead of Weghorst who claimed third place with 8.18. A rating of 8.04 out of ten won fourth place for Ben Mee.

The result gave Tarkowski eight points towards the Up the Clarets Player of the Year with Weghorst winning seven points. There were also five points for Pope and one each for Mee and Pieters. Winner for the past three seasons, Tarkowski is now on top again. These points have taken him seven points clear of now second place Charlie Taylor. Pope has jumped into third place but is 22 points behind Tarkowski.
