I knew we'd rue all the missed chances first half, and so it proved. Traore is not the man for situations like that, he provides no support whatsoever for Cash. Cash himself had a shocker though, so did Martinez.

That's easily our most painful defeat of the season. As good as we were first half there's always a nagging suspicion that one goal won't be enough. We had chances to put them to bed and didn't do it.

Thought Barkley and Traore were non existent in the second half.

Again Traore left Cash to it down the right.

This is a real sickener. To concede 3 in a half against Burnley when they' d previously only scored 5 at home all season is a big concern.

As frustrating as tonight and the last game was this does not in any way define who we are or our season. We literally did everything but score and because we didnít we let in stupid goals. Thatís the PL for you. We deserve what we got in the end. But nobody should be jumping off a bridge over this. We create so many chances and I would always rather have that than lose by not creating chances. We are still a side learning to operate at the top end and we will need to quickly overcome this. Just a bizarre two games. Not one.

Ridiculous defeat. Should've won it comfortably. I just can't believe we threw it away. A stupid second goal from a cross, how on earth did that go in? Burnley are rubbish and yet they end up winning!

They dragged us down to their level and beat us with their shithousery.

We should have been out of sight at halftime.

We tired as the game went on and they started picking up too many second balls.

We scored 2 beautiful goals, but conceded through poor defending down our right hand side - lessons to be learned?

we went back 12 months with that soft defending in the second half - disappointed to say the least

Bollocks. To lose that after such an enjoyable first half. Their goalkeeper was superb and kept them in the game which allowed them to get to half time still in it.

Second half we was bullied all over the pitch and our defence looked vulnerable for the first time in ages.

If we can't win a game we seldom are able to grind out the draw, we get beaten too often. Just checked, that's our seventh loss of the 18 played.

Enough is enough, Mings costs us, Hause is far better, never loses a header and doesn't fuck about. If we want to genuinely progress he cannot be anywhere near the side now. Sorry Mings fans. All this shite about distribution is just that, he fires it 50 years down the line, any clown can do that. I am furious we lost that, City showed last night how you put clowns to the sword and we lost, miles off.

Obviously need to make the chances created count. They were unlikely to have such a poor half as they did in the second half although that was largely down to us being brilliant and it was hard to replicate that for the whole game.
Undone by a cross that sneaked in and a brilliant header from Wood, not to mention the shocking defending for the first. Shit happens and weíll move on despite the poor result.
Disappointed by Barkleyís contribution or lack of, Iíll give him a bit of slack as heís on the way back from an injury but the way heís going El Ghazi can feel hard done by. I know a lot of our play goes through Grealish but, for me Barkley needs to show more.

I can't work out how we lost, although I thought we would be ruing our profligacy in the first half and I knew Burnley wouldn't be as bad after the break.

However you know they play for and practise set pieces, you know they cross early without even looking and just hope for a nod down. It's like Wimbledon of old to a degree along with the fouling.

The first two goals were down to really bad defending and probably for the first time Martinez wasn't great, whilst Pope kept them in it time and again.

McGinn and Barkley looked done after about an hour as well so we should have changed things up. Hindsight is a great thing though as when we went back in front I really thought we would close it out.

Out of the games weíve lost this season that feels the worst. Should of been 3-0 up at half time and out of sight. Got drawn into a scrap by a bunch of scrappers, and even after going 2-1 up, started to give possession away too easily. Thought Traore should off come of earlier than he did, but then none of the subs hardly touched the ball let alone made an impact. Never looked like coming back into into after going behind. Chalk it down to experience and hopefully get something on Saturday against a much better side.
