BURNLEY stormed back to winning ways with a 3-0 victory over West Ham at Turf Moor on Saturday.

From changes to the starting XI to our good friend VAR, there was plenty to digest post-match.

Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood were both on target with Ashley Westwood trying to claim the third that will go down as an own goal from hapless West Ham 'keeper Roberto.

Below we take a look at the main talking points from the game.

Dyche deserves a lot of credit for his changes

Sean Dyche promised that shirts would be up for grabs after the Clarets’ 3-0 defeat at Sheffield United last weekend and it wasn’t a hollow promise.

He switch both his full backs with Phil Bardsley and Charlie Taylor coming into the starting XI and handed Chris Wood a return up front following the Kiwi striker's injury.

And it made a real difference.

The defence looked to have good balance and Taylor provided more of a threat going forward while Wood helped himself to a goal and, had decisions and decision-making been slightly different, he could have been going home with the matchball.

VAR decisions all about tight margins

The Clarets were on the end of another tight VAR call when Wood headed home a delightful Dwight McNeil cross only to see the goal ruled out by Lee Mason at Stockley Park due to a marginal offside call. Having seen the video, I can confirm he looks offside… by about three inches.

VAR checks every goal as a matter of course but I’m not sure the naked eye, in real time, would have been able to spot it so is VAR pushing things too far?

There were other decisions like that this weekend – see the disallowed Sheffield United goal against Spurs for instance – which I think go beyond correcting ‘clear and obvious’ errors, which is what we’re told VAR is there to do.

It didn’t matter in the end but I don’t think it’ll be long before a decision does prove disastrous for a team and then we’re in a real mess.

A good goalkeeper is worth his weight in gold

I know the Clarets had been shipping goals for fun before the win over West Ham but I’m not sure we’ll ever see Nick Pope put in as Jekyll and Hyde a performance as Roberto did for the Hammers.

The Spaniard spent 70 minutes looking like he’d never seen a football before – and was at fault for all three Clarets goals – before suddenly turning himself into a world class keeper with the game already lost.

Having a steady pair of hands between the sticks is one of the most important things in the modern game but if Roberto keeps playing like he did for two-thirds of Saturday’s game, West Ham really are in trouble.

His performance in the last 20 minutes – when he pulled off decent saves from Jeff Hendrick and Bardsley – shows he is at least a capable keeper but by that point the damage was done.
