We are ready for Europa league next season.
This was a strong message sent by burnly fc players to other English premier league clubs after destroying Southampton fc at the Clarets on 10th of August,2019. Ashley Barnes was really on form as he put on a very spectacular performance against Southampton fc and he was really a treat to other clubs as his two goals eased Burnley to their biggest opening day win in the top flight since 1966.
That astonished performance also increase his goals tally to 12 league goals from last season as the 29-year-old looks more comfortable at this level with each passing year.
Barnes was another player who increase the pain of “The Saints” after converting a fine pass from Johann Berg Gudmundsson curled in a third after beating Ryan Bertrand to a bouncing ball as three goals in 12 minutes decided the outcome. The margin of victory was flattering but reflected the key difference between the teams. Saints were neat and tidy if lacking punch, whereas Dyche’s team were clinical.
But it would have been a different story if Southampton fc new signing Che Adams had converted their best chance inside the opening two minutes. The striker, brought in for £15 million from Birmingham, saw his volley on the stretch from close range go inches wide of the post. Ralph Hasenhut was in the state of confusion as his side slum to 3-0 defeat at the Clarets. burnley fc are currently on 5th position after that superlative win.
