CLARETS reporter Tyrone Marshall discusses the talking points from Burnley's final day defeat to Bournemouth.

Nick Pope 8

One excellent first half save to deny Mousset and an even better one from Defoe

Matt Lowton 6

Put in some dangerous crosses when getting forward but gave the ball away cheaply for the equaliser

James Tarkowski 7

Couple of shaky moments in possession in the first half but made a crucial block from a King shot

Kevin Long 6

Solid defensively and displayed some excellent long-range passing as well, but slipped to allow the Cherries a winner

Stephen Ward 7

Got forward well down the left and involved in the goal with a good cut back for Westwood

Aaron Lennon 6

Crossing slightly wayward but more involved than he has been of late, taking the chance to run at the Cherries defence

Jack Cork 7

Kept the ball well and kept it simple in midfield. Key in Burnley’s strong first half finish

Ashley Westwood 8 (Man of the Match)

Scuffed his shot for Wood’s goal but it will count as an assist and he did well to get in the position. Covered a huge amount of ground and while he was good in the ball he was as good out of possession, pressing Bournemouth and cutting off passing angles

Johann Berg Gudmundsson 7

Withdrawn early as he looks forward to the World Cup. Not at his best but had a few lively moments

Jeff Hendrick 7

Smart pass in build-up to Wood goal. Took up some good positions but often took too many touches when presented with a shooting chance

Chris Wood 7

Saved a miss of the season contender by the offside flag. Knew nothing about his goal but they all count


Sam Vokes for Wood (61)
Nahki Wells for JBG (80)
Dwight McNeil for Lennon (90)
