Lloris - 6 When called upon he made some wonderful saves and kept us in the game in the second half but his distribution is awful and Poch and his staff have to do something about this quick smart Walker - 6 You can see that he is still not match fit but we have improved so much with him back in the side. He provides that out when we are under pressure with his pace and his runs on the flank give us some much more attacking threat on the right side. My big beef is his passing which seemed off and while timing is usually a match fitness issue he needs to concentrate on improvement in this area. Fazio - 6.5 He is a great asset with long balls as he wins every header but his pace is a worry. He is solid with play in front of him but all over the shop if he is turned and has to win the ball back. Had a hard time with Ings who was simply too pacy for him. Vertonghen – 6 A strange game for Jan. He looked slow and ponderous at times and lacked concentration. His confidence seemed low when it should be much higher after some solid performances recently. Neither CB really had a good game. Davies - 6 Stupid foul for a yellow card early doors and seemed to play cautiously from then on. Solid in defense for the most part with a few lapses in concentration but created few chances down his flank. Mason - 7 He was doing well before his injury and getting involved in some crisp passing in MF. Made a couple of good runs into the box and was involved in a lot of the link up play. Much better than recent matches as he has been poor. I hope he's back soon. Bentaleb - 5 Don’t know what happened to Nabil. Seemed lethargic and was average for most of the game. His positioning and passing was poor. Looks like he needs a rest. Was the weak link in MF for us. He’s off to AFCON next month but the lad looks like he needs a holiday instead. Chadli - 7 A very good assist and he looks comfortable and settled in that attacking 3 behind Kane. Some nice passing and interchanges with Eriksen and Lamela. While not everything came off for him, he played well. Eriksen - 7.5 He had a good game but not the wonder match most are making out on here. We had acres of space at times and my main criticism is that he could have taken more advantage of it. A playmaker on his game would have had put Burnley to the sword. He is a frustrating player at times. One moment he is making a wonderful incisive pass and the next moment he misses a glaring opportunity. Consistency is the big thing missing from his game at the moment. Flashes of brilliance are good to see but I’d like to see him really pushing his game out there so he is more in control as he is quite capable of this. Bigger things to come from this lad. He still needs to improve his corners as some of them are just fecking embarrassing. Lamela - 8 MOTM Had a wonderful first half and wasn’t as bad are some are making out in the second. Was easily our best player. He worked hard, pressed constantly in the first half especially, scored an outrageously good goal and was a real thorn in Burnely’s side. He was a constant creative outlet for the team and seemed to read the game better than Eriksen, Mason and Chadli in the first half. His dribbling and one-touch play was good as well and he linked up well with Eriksen, Chadli and Kane. The front four seem to be getting their act together. His drop off in intensity at the beginning of the second half was disappointing and we lost the initiative as a result as he was our main threat although he came back into the game with the rest of the team. Kane – 7 Not a great game from Harry but he is quickly becoming such an influential player that he keeps the opposition defense fully occupied as they regard him as a real threat. He worked tirelessly as usual and made some good runs off the ball but apart from his goal he didn’t seem to get into the game as much as he has recently. He faded like the others in the early part of the second half and three games in 7 days looks like it was taking its toll. Had an awful miss to Lamela’s cross but you can’t fault the lad at 21 as he is still settling into the PL. Stambouli - 6 He should have settled us a bit when he came on but I didn’t think that he and Nabil really worked well together. He broke up the play and played some nice forward passes but he is a limited player in that respect who is really better at providing cover then linking play as we really struggled to take the ball out from defense in the second half. Soldado -5.5 Did an OK job but nothing spectacular. Rose – NET as really not enough time. Oppo - I was impressed with Burnely. They played for each other and had a never say die attitude. A good honest hard working team that deserves better than its current position. Came and played aggressively and you have to compliment Dyche on his courage and aggressive attitude. No parking the bus here! Play on like this and they will avoid relegation. Poch - 7 He put out a strong side but a few players seemed to fade early. Maybe he needs to rotate more. We had 23 shots to their 9 and overall the possession stats were heavily in our favour at 60 odd percent. We need to be more clinical with teams like Burnley and sufficient to say we are still very much a work in progress. A good side would have killed them off in the first half. Some grass shoots appearing though in relation to the high pressing style but we have to be able to do that right through a game and not just for 60% of it.
