burnley fc - fantastic season

Burnley FC in their 2nd season back in the Premier League recorded a 35% points increase on their 2016-2017 season total, achieving top spot on our Swingometer graphs! They bagged 14 more points in the 2017-18 season than in the previous campaign - a great performance from Sean Dyche's team.

Burnley started their season with a shock win over then champions Chelsea, winning 3-2 at Stamford Bridge - a shock for the champions who could not hold onto their title, Chelsea ending the season in 5th position.

Burnley have bounced up and straight back down again in their previous two promotion years, finishing 19th in 2016 and 18th in 2010, this is a different Burnley side and have proved they deserve their place in the top level of English football.

Top goal scorers Chris Wood (10) and Ashley Barnes (9) helped Burnley to 7th spot but the main credit must go to the Burnley FC defenders and goalkeeper Nick Pope, who let in 16 fewer goals in the 2017-18 Premier League season than in the previous year. Nick Pope is now in Russia with the England World Cup squad - well done Nick!
