Burnley have come crashing back down to earth in recent weeks, losing three on the spin and conceding thirteen goals in the process.
The Clarets began their mini revival by soundly beating Bournemouth [GW6], and followed it up with a win at Cardiff before drawing with Huddersfield. But the wheels have come off since. Sean Dyche’s men could be forgiven for shipping five at Champions City, and possibly, the four at home to title challengers Chelsea. However, a heavy loss to fellow strugglers West Ham, suggests Burnley are in for a long season. Their Europa League qualification campaign was built on a solid defensive foundation, only 39 conceded [17] at Turf Moor, but this year, after only eleven games, Burnley have a goal difference of minus 13. And following Saturdays defeat, Dyche was dealt a further blow with the news that Ben Gibson will go back under the knife. "Ben is going to have a hernia operation," he said. "They will look again and he will have some keyhole surgery. It shouldn't be a long one." Nov 5 - 11:34 AM
