Lukas Jutkiewicz scored twice against Celta Vigo

LUKAS Jutkiewicz made it five goals in five pre-season games as he warms up for the Premier League Chelsea opener.

The former Middlesbrough man scored twice against Spanish side Celta Vigo in a heated ‘friendly’ last night and will be hoping he has done enough to secure his place in the starting line-up against Jose Mourinho’s side on August 18.

Jutkiewicz played up front alongside Ashley Barnes in the absence of top scorer from last season Danny Ings who sat out the game with a slight hip injury.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Tom Heaton started his first pre-season friendly after recovering from a calf injury which had sidelined him since July.

Celta Vigo, who finished ninth in La Liga last season, are on a tour of England after playing Norwich and Wolves in earlier games and drawing with both.

With another match against Everton tonight, they fielded nine graduates of their youth team in a weakened starting 11.

Burnley caught them out as early as the second minute when Dean Marney found Ross Wallace who played in the perfect ball for striker Jutkiewicz at the near post.

He got in front of the defender just eight yards out and fired the ball past keeper Ruben Blanco.

The Spanish side found their feet without testing Heaton until Jordan Dominguez’s free header on 13 minutes but it was a routine catch for the Clarets stopper.

Summer signing Jutkiewicz almost grabbed a second two minutes later when he shrugged off the attentions of the Spanish defender and fired goalwards from the edge of the area but his effort bounced off the post.

And then Ben Mee was unlucky not to open his account when he got on the end of a Wallace corner but his header was inches wide of the post.

Burnley were having a go from all over the park as they found space in the Spanish defence and they were certainly enjoying some shooting practise.

The best chances were falling to Jutkeiwicz and he came close to another on 19 minutes when he got the ball to the left of the area, after a swift passing move involving Scott Arfield and Dean Marney, but Blanco denied him with his legs.

It wasn’t so much a friendly after 30 minutes when a midfield pushing and shoving melee ensued following a challenge with most of the players getting involved at some stage, ending with Celta’s Santi Mina receiving a yellow card.

The chances petered out towards the break and Sean Dyche didn’t make any changes at the start of the second half as he gave his starting eleven more ‘match time.’ Celta Vigo made wholesale changes to what was more like their first choice team and almost capitalised on it in the opening minutes of the second half when substitute Fabian Orellana hit the woodwork with a curling effort which had Heaton beaten.

Burnley were now chasing the ball more than they were in the first half – something they may have to get used to in the Premier League.

Another sub Charles Dias headed over while Manuel Agudo Nolito forced a good save out of Heaton, as the keeper began to see more of the action.

They finally made the breakthrough on 69 minutes when Alex Lopez caught out the defence and lifted the ball over Heaton after a neat through ball by Orellana.

However the Clarets response was instant when Ashley Barnes did all the hard work on the left wing and drilled the ball across the area for Jutkiewicz to score from close range.

The Spanish side were once again back on level terms in a lively second half on 73 minutes when Nolito curled the ball into the bottom corner of the net after another swift build-up.

Jutkiewicz and Barnes both left the pitch with around 10 minutes left giving a chance to Steven Reid and Marvin Sordell as Dyche assesses his squad for the big Chelsea opener.

BURNLEY: Heaton, Trippier (O’Neill 82), Duff, Shackell, Mee, Arfield, Marney (Taylor 66), Jones, Wallace, Barnes (Reid 79), Jutkiewicz (Sordell 79)

Subs: Gilks, Lafferty, Anderson, Hewitt, Gilchrist, Kightly, Long

CELTA VIGO: Blanco, Mallo, Mina, Larrivey, Costas, Madinda, Gomez, Araujo, Pino, Dominguez.

Subs: Alvarez, Fontas, Lopez, Diaz, Agudo Nolito, Orellana, Planas, Castro, Cabral, Krohn-Dehli, Ferreriroa, Fernandez

Good game tonight, a real test and entertaining. Great to see such quality on the turf, slick passing, pace, movement and plenty of goalmouth action. Tripper had his work cut out and Juke looked dangerous, elsewhere were some great performances. Quality game quality opposition, the lads must be dead on their feet.

Quality opposition!
Dead on their feet!

You played against a youth team, read the article. And as for being dead on their feet they'd better get fit quick.

Great game. Enjoyable. Impressed with Jutkiewicz. Shackell played well but lost his man a couple of times. Celta Vigo looked every bit a top ten La Liga side in the second half. Finished 9th last season with good wins against Real madrid, Espanyol and Valencia behind them. Good workout.

Notice that 25 Clarets came on and have given AP4B 25 thumbs up to support his description of the club he love as "ordinary joes" and where he sets out to belittle the opposition to ensure any achievement by Burnley is squashed on the grounds of the opposition was sub-standard,. Rock solid Claret this lad. And where a couple of other fans make generally good comments on the game, they all receive 20 or more thumbs down. All these anti-claret clarets bothering to mark up and down but not comment. How odd. And if it were all Rovers fans doing it instead, how odd they don't comment either. You know, it makes you wonder if Gollum's up to sticky little tricks. I know that's hard to believe.

And didn't they want it? Rarely seen a side so up for it, in our faces last season let alone a friendly! Really good choice and a real battle, unless like troll boy you think playing a PL development squad is good prep for life in the 2nd tier. They will have got a lot from that, feisty and competitive is what we need.

Hate to say it but good result for you lads against a decent opposition.

Can't argue with a draw against a top half La Liga side who's manager recently moved onto Barcelona.

And that lad Jutkiewicz is looking more and more like a sound buy, I only wish my club had the financial wherewithal to bring in that sort of quality instead of rejects from League One Doncaster.

In all honesty he could form quite a formidable partnership with Danny Ings and I'd say you'll have no problems finding goals this season. Some decent backup players too in Sordell and Barnes, and with Sam Vokes to return you've got an embarrassment of riches when it comes to strikers, while our lot are actually paying one of our own players a fortune to score goals for our rivals, if you can believe that. When we're not paying off their contracts to the tune of millions that is. As one of your lads would say, it's a shambles.

Truth be told, I'm growing ever more concerned as we get closer and closer to Friday's game against Cardiff, I fear a heavy defeat could be on the cards after what I've seen in pre-season from the Rovers scraping three lucky draws against Accrington Stanley, Bradford and Bury. Pathetic results make no mistake.

Saddens me to say but I think we're going to be in for a bumpy ride this season and although Gary Bowyer says all the right things I can't help but feel he's out of his depth. What I'd give for a Dyche at Rovers.

Have to hold my hands up and say you deserve your place in the Premier League, your lot seem to be doing everything right at the moment, can't argue with it. I only wish we could follow your example but I fear our time is now up with this transfer embargo looming. Never mind, I'll look forward to MOTD and dream of what might have been.

Good luck lads.

Well a draws better than a defeat even if it was against a lot of youngsters.I would be concerned with the lack of signings because a big squad is essential in the PL we found that out when the Venkeys started their clear out.Strikers are the reason teams stay up or go down as you can be well organised comitted but unless your strikers can score goals
your doomed and the big clubs know this and spend between 20,to 40 million on their 20 goals a season strikers. I am not too sure about the other strikers being up to it but I do think Ings may be the one to shine for you if we go up we would be reliant on Rhodes but after watching the Premiership for over 20 years I know there is a massive gulf in skill and pace between the two divisions.

Just like your workout against a quality side like AFC Telford. Whats the matter no big clubs want to play you now you are a Championship side. Jutkiewicz got another couple , he will soon have scored more than Rhodes did all last season and we haven't even started yet. Remind me Barry how much did you pay for him, LMFAO.

Whilst 2-2 was probably an acceptable result for the Clarets against the team that came 9th in La Liga last season, several things were clear from last nights performance - 1) Burnley really need to work on their possession skills - they were relieved of the ball far too easily on numerous occasions; 2) the vision and anticipation is woeful - putting passes in to empty spaces and not reading the intent of other players were far too obvious. The ball was gifted to Celta Vigo too softly several times; 3) The players are too quiet and don't communicate well - the only one who bossed the team from start to finish was Tom Heaton - you could hear him loud and clear from the start; 4) Danny Ings was missed badly and Lukas Jutkeiwicz really hasn't got the pace to be an effective replacement - yes, he's a big lump in the classic centre-forward mould, but he needs to be used getting on top of the keeper in set-pieces and poaching in the six yard box - expect him to put a run in and he makes Andy Carroll look like Usain Bolt. Burnley are really going to have to up their game if they're even going to start thinking about survival in the Premiership.

All that said, we weren't helped by the fact that Celta Vigo fielded two different teams - changing the full eleven at half time is a bit sneaky, even in a friendly. Add to that the fact that the referee should clearly have been wearing a green shirt and it wasn't an easy ride for the Clarets, but then that's what the pre-season is for. I just hope that Sean Dyche and his coaching team can make the changes and instill the discipline before the 18th - otherwise I fear that we may see a massive drubbing in our opening game agaisnt even a weakened Chelsea.

The cold hard fact is we don't have 20 million to spend on any striker which is why we pulled out of the Deeney deal. I think Dyche will get the best out of all our strikers just like he did last season and hopefully that will be enough. Where we need to strengthen is at the back and in midfield, that is more of a worry than up front.

Quality opposition!
Dead on their feet!

You played against a youth team, read the article. And as for being dead on their feet they'd better get fit quick.
They brought on their entire first team in the second half you no-nothing dickwad.

A good performance that was much more like last season: closing down well, breaking quickly, slick passing.

The Juke looked excellent, a real threat along with Ashley Barnes.

We are going to stay up comfortably this season, and if we can add Lansbury, Dawson and another winger to the squad we will be just fine.

Dare to Dream Ba5tards, dare to dream.

All that said, we weren't helped by the fact that Celta Vigo fielded two different teams - changing the full eleven at half time is a bit sneaky, even in a friendly. Add to that the fact that the referee should clearly have been wearing a green shirt and it wasn't an easy ride for the Clarets, but then that's what the pre-season is for. I just hope that Sean Dyche and his coaching team can make the changes and instill the discipline before the 18th - otherwise I fear that we may see a massive drubbing in our opening game agaisnt even a weakened Chelsea.
I didn’t attend last night’s game but thanks for your summary. Tom Heaton is always vociferous. He really is a good keeper. I have said before and say again he may get an international call before too long. I can’t believe anyone can make Andy Carroll look like Usain Bolt. I will watch this on Saturday. The question is can Burnley adapt to this quality of opposition? Having said that the lowest team in the Spanish league could probably out-pass the top team in the EPL.

Good game tonight, a real test and entertaining. Great to see such quality on the turf, slick passing, pace, movement and plenty of goalmouth action. Tripper had his work cut out and Juke looked dangerous, elsewhere were some great performances. Quality game quality opposition, the lads must be dead on their feet.
Quality opposition!
Dead on their feet!

You played against a youth team, read the article. And as for being dead on their feet they'd better get fit quick.
Yes they did and in the 2nd half they made 9/10 changes to bring on some regular 1st team players as they had too. Good workout for the team .

Your jealousy is so obvious , so jog on and look at your own failing rabble .
