The Road To Europe - Season Review Part 4

  What a season that was. Seventh place in the Premier League gave the Clarets their highest league finish since 1974, with Europa League qualification taking Burnley into European competition for only the third time in their history and the first for 51 years. 

This is the final instalment of how it happened, including a FREEVIEW 30-minute video review


 After a testing winter schedule, the Clarets took off at the start of March with the run that ultimately propelled them over the line and into Europe.

 In a magical month – wrapped around a first England call-up for Nick Pope and a first cap for James Tarkowski – Sean Dyche’s revitalised side racked up a hat-trick of wins with more to follow.

 And it all started with a 2-1 home success over Everton which was to prove pivotal come the end of the season.

 The Toffees went in front, which on 53 previous attempts in the top flight under Dyche’s leadership had spelled an end to Burnley’s victory hopes.

 But this team dusted themselves down to score twice in a magnificent fightback which brought a first win in 12 league games and a crucial three points in Dyche’s 250th game in charge.

 The deadly duo of Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood got the goals as Barnes coolly finished from Matt Lowton’s sublime through-ball before Wood marked his return, via the bench, from a costly injury-enforced absence with a header past England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford from a Johann Berg Gudmundsson corner.

 Everton skipper Ashley Williams was sent off late on in front of the unhappy Everton fans, who didn’t see their side lay a glove on Burnley again in the race for Europe as a first double over Sam Allardyce’s side since 1960 took the Clarets up to 40 points.
