Last season's performance

Burnley went into last season as one of the most fascinating sides in the Championship. Moving away from the direct style of Sean Dyche to the possession-heavy style of Vincent Kompany, anything could’ve happened.

It took a couple of months for the Clarets to get up to speed, but once they hit top gear – which didn’t take all that long – they ran away with the title with promotion as good as sealed by the spring. 

Loanee Nathan Tella had a stellar season with 17 goals, with Manuel Benson and Jay Rodriguez both reaching double figures.

This season's prospects

It’s all too easy to look at newly promoted sides as obvious relegation candidates, but by and large, Championship winners come up and look quite at home in the top flight, with the exception of Norwich who’ve always seemed content in going back down. 

Burnley have struggled to adapt to Premier League life, however, with the Clarets staring relegation back to the Championship in the face with Vincent Kompany's side profligate in front of goal and porous in defence in the top flight so far this season.
