Burnley Football Club, also known as The Clarets, is a professional football club that currently plays in the Premier League. Burnley FC have had an up and down season both on and off the pitch. Burnley’s poor results can be attributed to their low wage bill compared to other clubs in the league. This blog post will explore Burnleys losses in the Premier League and what they need to do to improve their status for next season!
Burnley’s Losses against Arsenal
Burnley FC have had a disappointing season, with losses to Arsenal. Burnley were defeated by Arsenal in the Premier League for their sixth game against them this season which left Burnley with no points from six games played in all competitions. In total they’ve managed just three goals and conceded 20 times – an average of five per match!
The team has been unable to find any form or consistency and it’s highly likely that come the end of April we’ll hear about how Burnley F.C are getting relegated.
Burnley’s losses against Liverpool
Burnley FC suffered yet another defeat to Liverpool at the weekend. Burnley, who were relegated from the Premier League on Saturday after a goalless draw away against Newcastle United, lost their fourth game in succession and have now conceded 14 goals in five matches – an average of more than three per match!
In total they’ve managed just four goals which leaves them with no points from six games played in all competitions. The team has been unable to find any form or consistency and it’s highly likely that come the end of April we’ll hear about how Burnley F.C are getting relegated.
What is the reason for this poor form?
Burnley’s poor form can be attributed to a number of factors. Burnley have been unable to keep possession well and their defence has not been able to withstand pressure from teams like Liverpool – the Clarets are one of five Premier League sides yet to register any points this season, while they’ve conceded more goals than anyone else in this campaign.
Additionally, for an unknown reason Burnley seem unwilling or incapable of playing at home with just four wins out of 18 games played since August 2017.
The stadium is also partly responsible for Burnley’s slow start as there is only one stand which was built in 1985 meaning that when it rains parts of the ground get flooded with water and muds on occasions causing issues with visibility etc.
