Burnley returned to Turf Moor a week last Saturday to face Leeds having ensured safety in the Premier League five days earlier with a 2-0 win at Fulham.

Of the three former Leeds players in the Burnley team it was left-back Charlie Taylor who starred, winning the man of the match vote and the player ratings by some distance in what was otherwise a disappointing performance from the Clarets.

Taylor polled 65% of the man of the match vote with striker Matěj Vydra in second place with a 12% share. Ashley Westwood was third with 6% while 3% of the vote secured joint fourth place for each of Dwight McNeil, Bailey Peacock-Farrell and James Tarkowski.

Taylor was again way ahead in the player ratings, scoring 6.68 out of 10. Matt Lowton and Ashley Westwood jointly took second place with 5.61 and just behind them was Vydra who had a rating of 5.57 out of 10.

Taylor won ten points towards the Up the Clarets Player of the Year with five points for Westwood, four for Vydra, three for Lowton and one point each for McNeil, Peacock-Farrell and Tarkowski.

Tarkowski increased his lead at the top to four points over Nick Pope. At the time we didn’t know that Pope wouldn’t play again this season which means Tarkowski is our player of the year. Taylor was able to move up to fourth place with his score, just six points behind Ben Mee.

We will have the Liverpool result later with the final scores to come in on Thursday following the closure of the Sheffield United vote.
