Guglielmo Vicario: Saved well from a header early on to deny Vitinho, will be disappointed to have failed to keep yet another clean sheet. 5.

Pedro Porro: Made a really poor attempt to try to tackle Berge in the phase which led to the goal. Made amends when he smashed the ball into the net to level the scoring. 6.

Cristian Romero: A solid half from the World Cup winner with most of Burnley’s attacking play coming down the other side. 6.

Micky van de Ven: His pace continues to be such an asset to the backline. 6.

Oliver Skipp: Preferred to Emerson Royal in the unfamiliar role at left-back. Saw Bruun Larsen nip in ahead of him to open the scoring. 5.

Pape Matar Sarr: One of those guilty of a missed tackle for Burnley’s opener. 4.

Yves Bissouma: Still being asked to play as a number 6 which he clearly isn’t. 4.

James Maddison: Recalled to the starting eleven, had the first chance of the game which was deflected over. Still nowhere near the level where he was pulling the strings early in the season. 4.

Dejan Kulusevski: Started the match out on the left, has been getting in good positions but his delivery has left a lot to be desired. 3.

Heung-min Son: Has had a couple of chances from the edge of the area but failed to trouble the keeper. 4.

Brennan Johnson: Had an early chance when he would have thought his shot was going in, only for Muric to save the volley. A poor failed tackle attempt for the first goal of the game. Made a nice pass to Porro for the equaliser. Should have put his side 2-1 up or at least played in Son who was open. Instead, he hit the side netting. 5.
