Burnley FC FC Squad 2018/19 – First Team 2018/19
Burnley FC new player in and out 2018/19. Here is the Burnley FC Squad 2018/19 (First Team)
Burnley Football Club is a Premier League club based in the North of England. They got promoted to the league in 2016 and therefore are relatively new to the Premier League. They have been in the league before but have never lasted more than one season at a time. In the 2016/17 season, they managed to survive Premier League relegation for the first time. They are doing well and establishing themselves as a solid Premier League side.
Burnley FC squad information 2018
Burnley Football Club’s nicknames are The Clarets which is a direct reference to the colour of their home kit. Claret is the distinctive colour of Burnley FC.
The rivals of Burnley are other local northern teams such as Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic. Burnley FC pride themselves on saying that they are currently doing better than all of their rivals. Bolton are in the Championship, whereas Wigan and Blackburn will both be playing League 1 football.
The top level of English football is where Burnley Football Club plays. Burnley were a relatively unknown club just a few years ago, but they are building a bigger fanbase and reputation. Their home ground is known as Turf Moor.
They have been playing at this stadium since 1883, although it has been redeveloped many times over the years. It is a very old ground and the capacity is small. There is a 21,800 seat capacity, which is relatively small for a Premier League side. Maybe they will look to expand their stadium soon if they can sustain their Premier League status.
Burnley FC Squad 2018/19
Burnley have been improving their squad this summer ahead of the 2018/19 season. After a successful 2015/16 season winning the Championship, they were prepared for a tough first season back in the Premier League. However, 2016/17 turned out to be a successful season where they finished comfortably clear of the relegation places.
The Burnley FC line up 2018/19 season will consist of these players. You can read of their salaries here.
Burnley FC Goalkeepers 2018
- Tom Heaton
- Anders Lindegaard
- Nick Pope
- Joe Hart
Burnley’s goalkeeping options are quite good as they have one of the best English goalkeepers out there. Tom Heaton has been praised for his fantastic performances over the last two seasons and continues to get better as time goes on. Though injury spells have seen his time decreased at the club this season, he has been linked with moves away to bigger clubs but right now, he is staying put at Burnley. The Clarets also have Joe Hart as a very good option after he joined them in the summer transfer window.
Burnley FC Defenders
- Ben Mee
- James Tarkowski
- Kevin Long
- Charlie Taylor
- Stephen Ward
- Matthew Lowton
- Phil Bardsley
- Ben Gibson
Burnley suffered a big blow last summer after they sold their star defender Michael Keane to Everton. Keane was a top player and the Toffees have got a good deal in the current market for £25million. But the loss hasn’t really affected their defence while Michael Keane has struggled at Everton. This shows how good manager Sean Dyche is at organising his defence.
Burnley FC Midfielders
- Jack Cork
- Ashley Westwood
- Jeff Hendrick
- Steven Defour
- Johann Gudmundsson
- Robbie Brady
- Dwight McNeill
- Aaron Lennon
- Josh Benson
In the midfield, Burnley have some good players. They re-signed Jack Cork from Swansea City for £8.19million. They also have the masterful free-kick taker Robbie Brady, who scored some very important goals for the Clarets last season.
Burnley FC Forwards
- Chris Wood
- Ashley Barnes
- Matej Vydra
- Peter Crouch
- Jonathan Walters
Again, Burnley have some good players going forward, but they have sold one of their better players in Andre Gray. They have brought in Jonathan Walters, who is a good player but not at the same quality as Gray. Chris Wood also joined on a record deal from Leeds, but they need to hope that players like Ashley Barnes can step up this season because there may be a lack of goals if they don’t. The addition of Matej Vydra from Derby County in the summer has not been a particularly good signing for them but they have again gone to the Championship to find more attacking options in the January transfer window. They let Sam Vokes leave for Stoke City and have brought in Peter Crouch.
