Burnley boss Vincent Kompany called his side's 1-0 win against Norwich City a "complete performance".

Jay Rodriguez got the decisive goal eight minutes from time from the penalty spot after Grant Hanley was judged to have handled in the box.

The result sees the Clarets return to the top of the Championship table, having won four of their last five matches.

Kompany said: “The guys were brilliant – it was a complete performance. What I believe in is to create more chances than the opposition and restrict them to few shots, and we were successful in doing that.

“That’s why the performance was good. We got in the box and had the beating of their full-backs but when there are no goals you have to be patient, and be aware that they are dangerous in the transitions.

“The key thing is that if they don’t do it, then I have a problem. If they make a mistake, I will take responsibility. It’s something that works for us and when we give up on it we are not the same team – and we saw that in the first half against Sunderland.

“We were pretty rampant in the first half but in football you feel that if you don’t score, the other team will get one chance and take it, and Aro (Muric) pulled off a great save when they did.

“How we managed the game, we did everything a team needs to be doing when playing against a championship contender.”

Kompany's men are abck in action on Saturday afternoon when they welcome eighth-place Reading to Turf Moor (KO 3pm).
