Firstly , I want to say that I didn't want to write anything in the match thread because I would basically repeat what everyone else said. But after watching Burnley last night I wanted to share my thoughts with you. As you probably now, Burnley have, like us, played three games so far. They got two wins and a loss(tbf it was in a match against Man City) which is five more points than us. On paper, our squad is much better and Crystal Palace ,who they played yesterday, are in a better position than Southampton. We should have better motivation for winning as we are in the relegation battle and they pretty much can't get relegated and are highly unlikely to get to European competitions places either. They made only 4 substitutes in total if possible 15 in these three matches (also 7 Burnley players played full 90 minutes in all three matches), yet for most parts of all their matches they looked fresher than their opponents. To sum up what I'm trying to say, thay have a weaker squad(they also pretty much don't have senior players oj the bench), they don't have the need to win like us, their opponents were stronger than our opponents, they rested less players than us and still managed to get five more points than us. And also concede the same amount of goals(although all of their five goals conceded were against Man City), look fresher and generally more up to it. So what I don't understand is why can't we at least play with their energy. Sure their play style isn't the prettiest (neither is ours at the moment tbf), but at this point of the season I'd rather we played like Burnley and get points than this s***show we saw in our last 2(or maybe 3) games.
