Burnley boss Vincent Kompany admits his side's 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace "hurts".

The Clarets went down to 10 men in the first half when Josh Brownhill brought down Jefferson Lerma after a weak pass by James Trafford.

The Eagles took advantage of their man advantage after the break through goals from Chris Richards, Jordan Ayew and Jean-Philippe Mateta - the latter from the penalty spot.

Burnley had the ball in the net in the final stages but the goal was chalked off for an offside following a VAR review.

Kompany conceded it was always going to be a tough ask for his side after a red card he demurred to evaluate, but the Clarets chief was more clear about how deeply-felt the loss had been.

He said: “It’s difficult to play in a game of this magnitude, and it’s really not something we could afford today, and it happened, and then after that it’s difficult to summarise what we’ve seen today.

“It’s one of them where you’ve got to pick yourself up again, because this one hurts, but the overall riding disappointment is on the fact that we had such a key event in a game where we couldn’t afford it.”
