‘Inside the dressing room’: burnley key player delivers defiant message after Burnley’s poor start to the season

Josh Brownhill remains optimistic that Burnley will secure points and make progress in the standings after the international break. The team currently finds itself in the Premier League’s bottom three, having only managed to accumulate four points from their first eight matches.

Their most recent defeat occurred on Saturday when they surrendered a one-goal lead and lost 4-1 to Chelsea at home, marking their fifth consecutive loss at Turf Moor. Although the fixture list has been challenging for Vincent Kompany’s squad, it is expected to become more favorable following the international break.

Expressing his disappointment after the Chelsea defeat, Brownhill stated, “I’m devastated really. I thought in the first half we performed well. We managed to take the lead against a formidable team that always creates opportunities, so heading into halftime at 1-1 was acceptable. Unfortunately, we conceded an own goal and gave away an early second-half penalty, which shifted the momentum in their favor. They have talented players, and suddenly we found ourselves trailing 4-1. It was a disappointing second half, but we need to support each other. It has been a challenging start.”

Brownhill is optimistic about the future, saying, “After the international break, we have some very winnable games. Inside the dressing room, we believe we can secure some points.”

Burnley’s first five home games have all been against teams typically contending for European qualification. In contrast, their four points have come from matches against Nottingham Forest and Luton Town, two teams expected to be in the vicinity of Burnley in the season’s final standings.

Brownhill emphasized the team’s desire to prove they can compete against top sides and earn points, especially when playing at home, saying, “Our main goal is to demonstrate that we can compete against these teams and collect points, especially in front of our home fans. We haven’t achieved that so far this season, but the fans have been fantastic. Hopefully, they will continue to support us and understand that facing top teams is extremely challenging. It’s not a straightforward task. If they stand by us, I’m confident that we’ll be fine, as there are upcoming games where we should be able to add more points to our tally and climb up the table.”
