Looking over Burnely’s results over the past 4 seasons, a trend of noticeable inconsistency is apparent. Since their return to the top-flight in 2016/17, they finished the season 16th, then 7th, then 15th, and then 10th. The slump in the 2018/19 season is easily explained with their focus on the Europa League campaign that year, but the stats don’t lie. Unreliability is bad news for Premier League betting.
That said, if you took a chance on a Top 10 Finish last year, you would have ended up with a tidy profit. If Premier League betting odds are to be believed, though, The Clarets’ form took a nosedive in the meantime. At odds of 11.00 for a Top 10 Finish, another shot at an international campaign seems as far off as its ever been. The top online bookmakers see them as the third most likely team to be relegated in 2020/21, priced at 2.50.
Burnley Key Players
A stiffer competition explains a part of the massive difference in odds. However, looking at their lineup, it’s quite realistic to predict a better performance that the odds give them credit for.
For instance, the young star Dwight McNeil is still with the squad. The promising winger has proven to be pivotal for both their possession play and set pieces. Conversely, centre-back James Tarkowski is seen as the squad’s most valued asset in all matters of defence.
Perhaps we can fault coach Sean Dyche’s unwillingness to innovate instead. The summer has been incredibly quiet in terms of transfers. Besides a few free transfers and loans, very little has been done to try and climb up the table. As almost all the other teams are gearing up for a heated season, sticking to the same-old might is not likely to turn out well for Burnley.
Based in the smallest town in the United Kingdom to take part in the Premier League, Burnley do not exactly have a list of prominent rivals in the top flight. Located in the north-west part of the country, the Clarets will look at the matches against Man City, Everton, Man United or Liverpool with particular interest.
However, their main rivals are not any of the existing EPL sides but rather Blackburn Rovers. Universally called the Cotton Mills Derby due to both towns’ cotton industry legacy, matches between these two sides would usually generate plenty of interest. The two clubs – and towns – are only 11 miles apart which makes this rivalry hotly contested from a fan’s point of view as well. Moreover, Burnley’s second main rivals are Rochdale, Morecambe and Bolton Wanderers.
The Clarets were founded back in 1882. Six years later, the club proudly became one of the original twelve clubs that founded the Football League. Having predominantly spent their time switching between the two top divisions of English football, Burnley experienced a lengthy period without any top-tier football – from 1976 to 2009.
Alongside from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sheffield United, Portsmouth and Preston North End, Burnley are historically known to be one of the five teams to have won all four professional divisions of English professional football. Furthermore, they managed to win the league titles twice – in 1920/21 and 1959/60. On top of that, the Clarets are also proud FA Cup winners from 1914.
