Vincent Kompany says Burnley were “overwhelmed by our own doing” following their 3-3 draw against Blackpool.

Burnley raced into a two-goal lead thanks to Josh Brownhill and Nathan Tella, but the visitors hit back through Theo Corbeanu.

Tella then added a second on his first start since joining on loan from Southampton, but goals from Shayne Lavery and Jerry Yates ensured the Clarets were held to a point.

Both sides finished with 10 men after Ian Maatsen and Sonny Carey were sent off five minutes from time following an altercation.

“The first half was terrific but we lost our way in the second half. We were just a little bit overwhelmed by our own doing,” said the Clarets chief.

“It was in line with our previous performances this season but this time we’ve had the magic of goals.

“Introducing Tella went well and he will get more goals this season. But then not everything went to plan and we’ve got to learn lessons.

“I’ve got to say that when we went down to 10 men we got more momentum. It was a shame because he’s [Maatsen] an important player for us.

“I will talk to him but we must remember he got booted off the pitch – it was a shin-high tackle. You are allowed a reaction but when you start putting your hands on someone you’re in trouble.

“What Ian did was not dangerous – it was just an error from a young player.”

Burnley have now picked up six points from their opening five matches back in the second tier.

Kompany's men are back in action on Tuesday night when they head to Shrewsbury Town in the Carabao Cup second round.
