AS Burnley prepare to bring the curtain down on a memorable 2017 with a trip to Huddersfield today, we look back at six of the best for the Clarets across the calendar year.

Burnley 1 Southampton 0 - January 14

AS 2016 became 2017 the Clarets were flying at Turf Moor.

This success over the Saints was Burnley’s fourth straight home win in a run that would eventually stretch to seven league and cup games.

It was a Clarets classic in so many ways as they edged a tight, tense affair with a late goal, and it was a Turf Moor return to remember for Joey Barton.

Lancashire Telegraph:

The midfielder had signed a deal until the end of the season after seeing his spell at Rangers end early.

He came off the bench on 73 minutes to a rapturous ovation and then wrote his own script, sending a low free-kick skimming into the back of the net.

Crystal Palace 0 Burnley 2 - April 29

FOLLOWING Burnley on the road in 2016/17 was a pretty thankless task.

Performances had improved away from Turf Moor as the season wore on but as the Clarets faithful made their way to Selhurst Park for the 18th away league game of the campaign that first win was proving elusive.

But on a gloriously sunny day in south London, Sean Dyche’s side finally broke their duck and all but confirmed Premier League survival in the process.

Ashley Barnes put the Clarets ahead on seven minutes and the nerves, which had been building throughout the second half, eased with five minutes to go as Andre Gray galloped clear on the break to lash home a second.

Chelsea 2 Burnley 3 - August 12

IT had been a long wait in 2016/17 for an away win, but as the 2017/18 season got under way it was all change away from Turf Moor for the Clarets.

Burnley had been handed a daunting start on the road but they struck at the first attempt with a famous 3-2 win at the home of champions Chelsea.

Lancashire Telegraph:

It was first half heaven for the Clarets, who astonishingly led 3-0 at the break. Gary Cahill was sent-off early on for the Blues before Sam Vokes struck either side of a Stephen Ward stunner to silence the Bridge.

Alvaro Morata and David Luiz goals made for a nervy finale while Cesc Fabregas was also dismissed as Chelsea finished with nine men and Burnley held on.

Everton 0 Burnley 1 - October 1

THIS away day business was now becoming a doddle for the Clarets.

Draws at Tottenham and Liverpool followed the win at Chelsea before Burnley travelled to Goodison Park.

They claimed a second away win of the league season on Merseyside thanks to a magnificent team goal that demonstrated the change in style for Burnley this year.

Nine of the outfield players were involved in a 24-pass move that ended with Jeff Hendrick firing home from inside the box to secure the victory.

Burnley 1 Stoke City 0 - December 12

IN terms of the quality of the game this Tuesday night fixture wasn’t a classic.

It was a wet, cold, miserable night where the weather helped neither side.

But as they have done so often before the Clarets found a way to win, with Ashley Barnes coming off the bench to score a dramatic late winner.

It was a goal that sent Burnley into the top four, which is why it makes our six memorable games of 2017.

The Turf Moor faithful filed away dreaming of Champions League football.

Manchester United 2 Burnley 2 - December 26

THE only fixture in the list that didn’t end in three points for the Clarets, but it was so close to being Burnley’s first win at Old Trafford in more than 55 years.

It was another stunning first-half performance on the road as Burnley led 2-0 at the break, with Barnes lashing home from close range and Steven Defour curling in a 25-yard free-kick.

Lancashire Telegraph:

The United second half siege duly arrived and Jesse Lingard halved the deficit early on.

But it looked like Burnley would hold on for the victory until Lingard fired home an equaliser in stoppage time.

It was a cruel blow for the Clarets but it was another memorable day in a year full of them for Burnley. But what was your favourite day of 2017? Vote below.
