Season Review Part 3 - Time For Take Off


By Burnley FC
June 2 2019

Among all the big results the Clarets dug out at crucial points of the 2018/19 season, fewer were more important than a 1-0 win over Brighton to lift the gloom of mid-winter.

 A first victory in nine games in early December briefly took Burnley out of the bottom three.

 And although there were three more defeats to follow from a tough fixture list around Christmas, Sean Dyche’s men stopped the rot in setting up the first leg a win double over a Brighton side that would end the season fighting for their lives.

 A scrappy goal from James Tarkowski was enough to secure just a third league win of the season as Joe Hart ensured a clean sheet on his 400th appearance in English football with a superb late save from substitute Glenn Murray.

 Back-to-back trips to London were to follow ahead of Christmas with the Clarets unable to add to their points’ tally at Tottenham or Arsenal.

 Signs of a revival were on the cards, though, as only an injury-time winner from Christian Eriksen at Wembley punctured Burnley’s back five following a change of formation which almost paid dividends.

 Arsenal were also pushed all the way before a late Alex Iwobi goal finally killed off a Clarets’ comeback launched by another Ashley Barnes goal against top-six opposition.
