On an already cold and miserable day in South Yorkshire, the Clarets put in a performance to match the weather. That’s not, however, to take anything away from Sheffield United, who were superb throughout.

Sean Dyche’s men came into the game off the back of two consecutive losses and never looked like ending that barren run. With Chris Wood missing up front, both Ashley Barnes and Jay Rodriguez struggled to get into the game at all.

A first-half blitz from the home side meant the game was put to bed by half-time. Goals from John Lundstram (2) and John Fleck meant Dyche had work to do at the break.

It wasn’t to be though. The second period followed a similar pattern to the first for Burnley. But for not conceding any more goals, there was little to shout home about for their fans.

Burnley fans, then, were rightly fuming after the match. A whole host of them took to Twitter following the game to share their frustrations.

It’s safe to say that there’s quite a bit of anger being directed at Sean Dyche’s men at the minute…

Some fans were calling for certain players in the January window already…

Some Sheffield United fans, on the other hand, took their chance to gloat…

Issues for Burnley

This was the performance of a team bereft of any confidence. A team who didn’t look like scoring and didn’t seem to want to compete with Sheffield United’s energy and work-rate.

It’s something Sean Dyche will have to address. We aren’t used to seeing a Burnley team roll over quite like they did today. The basics of the game were missing. They lost out aerially, in tackles, and struggled to create anything meaningful up front.

It could be a long, hard struggle for Burnley and their fans if Dyche can’t fix things quickly.
