BEN Mee admitted it was a 'tough day at the office' for Burnley after the Clarets were beaten 5-0 at Manchester City on Saturday.

Sean Dyche's side were in the game at the break - trailing to Sergio Aguero's goal - before Pep Guardiola's men hit four in the second half, a goal glut sparked by Bernardo Silva's controversial second.

And Mee admitted that proved the turning point.

On City's second goal he said: "My view is that the ball went out of play. Maybe we shouldn't have stopped but I think the ball went out of play clearly and he (David Silva) could even have been offside. But sometimes things happen like that. We would like to have kept the score down a bit.

"We were pleased with the majority of the game but the last half an hour we lost our legs a little bit and they punished us."

Mee and Burnley face another unbeaten side this weekend when Chelsea visit Turf Moor and the Clarets skipper is keen to move on from the City defeat, something he is confident the squad will do this week.

"We have no problem drawing a line under that and we will get ready for the game next week. We will go again.

"It was a tough day at the office (against City) and a tough one to take. I didn't think we deserved to lose the game 5-0.

"We were in the game for 55 minutes and then a little decision doesn't go away.

"We are disappointed and we would we would like to show a bit more resilience but the third one is into the top corner and there is not much you can do about that.

"That makes it even more of a challenge to come back and it is a tough place to come and they are a top quality side."
