Voting is now open for December’s No Nay Never-Burnley Express player of the month award – here’s what happened through the month.
December was a mixed but encouraging month for the Clarets. The month started with a draw at home against Newcastle, with George Boyd getting the goal for Burnley. A defeat at QPR was followed by a sterling win against Southampton with Ashley Barnes kicking off what was an impressive month for him, grabbing the only goal at Turf Moor.
A disappointing loss at Tottenham saw Barnes net a sensational goal and Burnley’s sterling first half against Liverpool failed to pay off, with the Reds taking three points thanks to Raheem Sterling’s winner. The month finished in impressive fashion with a stellar comeback at the Etihad with goals from Boyd and Barnes. December saw Michael Keane really start to prove himself, and his performances were enough to warrant a permanent deal for the then Manchester United loanee.
