Tough evening for the right-back, who wasn't as effective going forward from right-back.

Looked to get forward from left-back. Lovely cross set up March for early chance. Brave challenge to stop Bardsley from shooting shortly afterwards.

Back in the starting line-up after missing two games with a hip injury. Looked to keep things simple in front of the back four. Unable to stop McNeil setting up Wood for Burnley's second.

Always an option for team-mates to pass to but had a quieter game than in recent weeks.

Made a bright start but faded the longer the game went on. Had a sweetly-struck volley superbly saved by Heaton. Subbed.

Lively down the right. Header pushed over by Heaton in early exchanges and also saw a fierce strike save by the Burnley keeper. Picked up a knock and subbed early in the second half.
