Nick Pope 7

Mis-hit one clearance in the first half but very solid aside from that and deserved to be on winning side for save from Sims

Matt Lowton 7

Rarely troubled defensively by Nathan Redmond and put in a couple of good crosses

Kevin Long 7

Might have been fouled by Gabbiadini for the goal, but another solid and comfortable performance

Ben Mee 8 (Man of the Match)

Made one terrific first half bloke back on the line to deny Tadic and had £19million Carrillo in his pocket all afternoon. Must have impressed watching England manager. Good captaincy after the goal as well to calm Barnes down.

Stephen Ward 7

Fine second half block on Redmond as he read a Saints corner routine. Settled straight back into the side.

Aaron Lennon 6

Chances came his way first half but he couldn’t take them. Put the cross in that led to the goal but drifted out of the game at times

Jack Cork 7

Kept the ball moving and took up some good defensive positions. Settling into a new partnership with Westwood

Lancashire Telegraph:

Ashley Westwood 7

Very unlucky with the goal and an encouraging performance aside from that. Good in possession

Johann Berg Gudmundsson 7

One excellent through ball for Hendrick and continues to look lively and Burnley’s most creative weapon

Lancashire Telegraph:

Jeff Hendrick 6

Didn’t deserve some of the stick he got. Took up some good positions in final third and played a role in goal

Ashley Barnes 7

A typical Barnes goal? Just threw himself at the ball, all about desire. A handful for Saints defence
